Welcome back to Sunday Selections.
Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
Today we're walking down to the shopping centre:
here's something we don't see in modern homes, the roof space ventilator
this home has four in a different style
three without any facings
this close up shows the mesh behind the openings (enlarge the image) to keep out rodents and birds
and finials! this one isn't as fancy as many older ones were, but how many finials do we see at all these days?
on the back end of that roof is this owl statue. many homes have them to deter other birds from sitting on the ridge and pooping down the tiles or corrugated iron.
I spotted a runaway balloon,
got tired of hanging around with his mates I suppose 😎
the cafe has the chairs ready for the brunch rush
I like these trees although I don't know what they are
this is where we're going today
Foodland, the bigger supermarket across the main road
I come here when I need eggs, they have genuine free range eggs, no more than 1500 hens per hectare on the farms, and they also have organic free range, which cost a bit more, but taste like eggs used to when I was little.
there's a wall of greenery between the entrance doors and the outdoor cafe, which I didn't photograph because there were people
on the other side of the entrance doors, herbs in small bundles, sitting in tubs with a small amount of water to prevent wilting
and exotic bananas, these are green plantains,
red dacca bananas and just off to the left there, monkey bananas
these strange looking things,
with glossy pointed leaves,
are Magic Bean Plants, $40 a pot
let's finish with this sweet young fellow, waiting patiently for his human.
