Some from July - beach, pasta, me


I'll go back into the archives of July again, but here are a few to start.

Brisbane City, Adelaide Street on a foggy morning.
Me. Self Portrait.
The Beach with my little girl.
 Our shadows on the beach.
 My little girl again, chasing waves.
And some pasta making - I made a batch of pasta with the kids. We had so much pasta that we made ravioli, then lasagne, and then fettuccini to finish it off!

 Coco the Spoodle.
And the last photo for this post, my eldest daughter's floor when she arrived home from holidays with a friend.

See you again soon!


Some of the photos I took in June


I'm not going to go back and do a post about all the photos I've taken... just in case you were wondering if I would bombard you. :-)  But, here are a few of the photos from June that I didn't share.

A few of Brisbane City.

A worksite on Adelaide Street.
 Statue in ANZAC Square.
 100 Creek Street, the National Australia Bank building. Terrica Place in the reflection.
 Alley between Adelaide and Queen Streets, near Creek Street. It was raining.
 Looking out the doorway of Bar Metzo at Adelaide Street in the rain, waiting for my coffee.

And a couple of black and white photos taken at home.

My bathroom.
And my daughter's rose. It's Margaret Merrill, a beautiful white rose with frilly edged petals.

I might go and see if there was anything worth sharing in July.

I'm back, hopefully! 2 August 2012 - lemon


I have been so busy and found myself unable to keep up with the daily photos on the blog! I have been taking photos all year (except for a few days off over the last couple of weeks), but I'm not sure if I'll get them loaded up here.

Here in Brisbane, it is the last month of Winter. Traditionally about now, the freezing cold westerly winds arrive, just in time for "The Ekka" (the Brisbane Show). Today, I am sitting here in a t-shirt and long shorts enjoying what is essentially a beautiful spring day.  My lemon trees think it is spring also.

While the last winter lemon hangs on the bush...
The rest of the bush has flowers bursting forth all over...

Excuse the ants and the scale, I just gave the citrus a good dose of white oil last week-end, so they'll be pretty again in a week or two. :-)

I love this time of year!
