A new day, a new beginning! (WPC – Rise/Set)

A new day brings a new beginning. A day to begin a new project, a day to begin planning a new adventure, or sometimes it’s simply a day to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

In the encouraging words of my darling mother… sometimes you just have to live each day to spite those who don’t want you to. My mother, our very own ray of sunshine!🙃

Rise/Set is this week’s Photo challenge from The Daily Post. Be sure to click on the icon below to see more fabulous interpretations of this week’s challenge.

Daily Admiration (WPC: Admiration)

Regardless of what happened yesterday to anyone, and what could be happening tomorrow to any one of us, each and every day the sun still rises to announce the beginning of another new day.

Daily Admiration

There’s been more than one occasion where I’d much prefer to pull the covers back over my head, pretending time has stood still. Alas, time never stands still and regardless of what’s going on in your life or mine, the sun still rises to greet us.

I have nothing but ADMIRATION for Mother Nature who continues on regardless, like so many other mother’s in every country around the world each and every day!



7 Day Nature Challenge – Day 7 (Flower Friday)

Day 7 of the 7-Day Nature Challenge. It’s hard to believe we are at the final day of this fabulous challenge and being a Friday I couldn’t resist a flower. This is a Australian Bottle Brush of which there at least 50 different varieties.

Bottle Brush Flower

Having spent the morning exploring the delightful Pincushion Island, we took another route back to where our car was parked. For the last 20 meters there was tree after tree of these Bottle Brushes in bloom. It was just glorious!

The lovely Desley Jane of Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist nominated me for this wonderful challenge and I have had just the best time. As I’ve been saying all week, do visit her fabulous blog if you aren’t already familiar with it.

And being the final day of this challenge I’d like to invite anyone who might be interested in doing this 7-Day Nature Challenge to please do so. It’s a fabulous way to have nature “re-inspire” you, and not just with your photography I assure you, lol!





7 Day Nature Challenge – Day 6

Day 6 of the 7-Day Nature Challenge is the combination of the force of nature on what was once a post cemented on Mother’s Nature’s glorious Pincushion Island. Despite these man-made conditions nature prevails by slowly adding life to the bottom of the post.

Force of Nature

The lovely Desley Jane of Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist has nominated me for this wonderful challenge. As I repeatedly say, do visit her fabulous blog if you aren’t already familiar with it.

In turn I’d like to invite Imelda of My Wall to join in. Imelda’s captures of the world around her are absolutely stunning plus her accompanying poetry is simply wonderful. Please take a moment to visit her blog if you haven’t already done so!
