Summer Umbrellas! (iPhriday Flowers)

These tiny flowers, clustered so tightly together, reminded of tiny little umbrellas. Now I’m thinking that perhaps I should have titled this post “How I Met your Mother” instead, lol.

To join in the fun of iPhriday, hosted by Lisa over at Gray Days and Coffeesimply post photos you’ve taken with your cell phone whatever the brand, then add the tag iPhriday. Too easy!





Beneath Your Feet on the River’s Bank (WPC)

It was simply glorious yesterday down on the riverbank yesterday watching family and friends salmon fishing under the brightest of sunshine, in river-water what I like to call a “glacial blue“.

So glorious in-fact one could almost miss what was… Beneath Your Feet!

Initially I thought this to be a patch of moss but as I stare at it now, I’m wondering if I’m looking at the tiniest of Spruce Forests, preparing themselves for whatever Mother Nature throws at them next!

Perhaps I suffered slight sunstroke yesterday but whichever it is, I still imagine there are tiny villages contained within this dense forest, with their town’s folk going about their daily business living in dread of the “giants” above!



Quintessential Australia

What could be more Quintessential Australia than kangaroos sitting under the shade of a tree during the middle of the day?

Of all the things I expected on our short visit to Australia recently, this glorious scene alongside the river came as a complete surprise.

As to when we’ll see something like this again… “mum, how much longer?”
