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.
EC is going to be a little late with her post today, but she has a good reason.
Let's begin mine with a little story: I went to visit a neighbour, knocked on her door, then stepped backwards to give her room to push open the screen door. I hadn't noticed that her tiny porch isn't very wide, so when I stepped back, I stepped onto air...and crash landed in her potplants. Three burly neighbours all rushed out to help me up.
I collected a couple of bruises>>>
upper thigh where the leg meets the bum, a trusted friend took this for me. I don't drop my trackie daks for just anyone (*~*) The dark centre has a wide shadow, you can just make it out spreading down the thigh.
Bruise number two, on the shin, below the knee, just off centre. Less spectacularly coloured, but more painful being closer to the bone. But only hurts when I touch it.
Here we have Lola,
doing what she does best. Sleep, wake up and move,
and go right back to sleep.
Last Wednesday, I stretched out on the couch under the sunny window and had a nap. Lola stretched out on my belly and had a nap. We were so warm and cosy, it was lovely.
this is Mitchell, the budgie I am looking after for neighbour Pat. This is the only clear photo I could get, he wasn't at all happy with a camera hiding my face. He bobbed and weaved and spun around until I put it down.
a pretty cloud in the sky across town,
more clouds to the east, looking a bit black right over the hills there.
I spotted a stand of lilies where I'm pretty sure there were none the last time I walked that way.
not my favourite flower, but they are elegant,
with a bright colour contrast.
here is a younger bloom only just a bit open,
with the stamen not so bright yet.
and to finish>>
another one of those lovely purple flowers.
