Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in too.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I have another random selection from the past. January and February 2012. If I can find them.
Right, I remember where that folder ended up, so here we go.
if you look closely there is a house on the hill. For quite a while I thought it would be lovely living in the hills here, with the views and the gorgeous autumn colours when the trees change, but then we had a bushfire, followed by another bushfire the next year and of course this year we face similar fire hazards, there has already been one fire up there, last week.
there are houses in this picture too, but hard to spot because of all the greenery.
more views of the hills and trees,
taken from the top end of Glen Osmond road I think
more trees than hill, but still a nice view
shadowed Jacaranda leaves
and sunnier ones
this magpie scurried away as I walked past.
this one on my front grass, followed me,
right to my front door,
then turned and walked away when he discovered I wasn't going to bring food out for him.
a praying mantis clung to the screen on my back porch gate, watching while I swept up dust and leaves that had blown in
curious little fellows aren't they? always watching
I rescued him and placed him in the ivy growing over the back fence. It's a little blurry, probably the wind was blowing.
a different bug finding refuge on my screen door.
a wonderfully shady tree in our city
a couple of sunset coloured roses,
and more trees.
let's finish with something without trees or greenery of any kind
a couple of window washers doing a fantastic job. I watched them swinging and swooping for so long I almost missed my bus.
