A promising start to a chilly morning
If I could combine three elements for my ‘ideal house’ I would have to have a palm tree, and maybe a jacaranda and of course an unusually shaped roof topped with a gargoyle. So when I spotted this house on a back road, in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of the state of Victoria, while I was disorientated looking for the most direct route to locate my ukulele playing friends…I did a u-turn and took these shots.
I noticed this tree while walking.
I watched this little finch and its mate hopping around outside my window. They seemed to be making a nest in amongst the wisteria. I took some photos through the closed window, hence the foggy appearance and lack of clarity in the photos. I really need to wash the windows! Then I tried to sneak up on them outside but they seemed very aware of my presence and wouldn’t come back into view. Hopefully, I will find time to sit and wait for a better shot.
