as it's about five years old.

Monday, March 5

Day 64

 In June 2010 I posted a photo similar to this —
taken down at the dam it was just one of the many wonderful sights we'd always enjoyed.
Nearly every day was a treat, with frogs, ducks, ibis, eagles, hawks & other wildlife visiting . . .

Not any more!
Today we watched in dismay (along with others) as developers took that away from us.
All that's left is a muddy, sloppy, stenchy mess & a lot of residents wondering what the next move will be!

Sunday, March 4

Day 63

Bearing fruit at long last perhaps?
our lemon tree really suffers from the harsh conditions where we live —
westerly winds & salt spray taking their toll — after four years this is the first time it has ever produced flowers.

Saturday, March 3

Decorated fruit cake, made by my youngest DD
completed over four weeks in a cake decorating class —

Pretty in pink, this pelargonium peltatum is putting on a good display
growing in a hanging basket under shelter in the back garden

San Remo Channel Challenge 2012
the challenge begins with a swim of 550 metres starting across the Channel from San Remo (mainland) to Newhaven (Phillip Island.)
The competitors change into their running shoes & then run 2 kilometres back up over the bridge to the San Remo township. 
With over 500 competitors spread out, it's a spectacular sprint to the finish line!

Day 39

Another bumper crop of zucchinis coming up . . .
looking good so far!

Wednesday, February 8

These Tiny Tims will be lucky if they make it to the kitchen table —

Project 365

2012 . . .
oh dear, only 78 days,
so that'd be an F?

2011 . . .
neglected after 85 days,
it's another F!

2010 . . .
all done,
it's an A+!

2009 . . .
8 weeks of layouts only,
it's an F for fail!

I live in a beautiful part of the world, with glorious ocean views, kangaroos bounding across the hilltops, assorted wildlife (echidnas, cape barron geese etc), birdlife & reptiles (not all nice . . . tiger snakes & copperheads —eek!)
