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 celebrating Australian early Summer. I know the calendar says Spring, but the temperatures here are hot enough for me to say it's Summer.
on the right of this photo you'll see the flimsy metal storage shelves I've had in the back porch, on the left, one of two cupboards that I've replaced them with.
Taller, wider and deeper, this hold much more than the shelves and I can close the doors to keep out dust (ha ha) and have it look neater. The other cupboard is half the height of this one, so it fits neatly under the bathroom windowsill or whatever you call those bricks that jut out from the wall. They came flat-packed, from cheap-as-chips, and I had no hope of putting them together, so sent a text message to my brother who came to the rescue and put them together in no time.
Later that evening, while propped up on the bed reading, I fancied a cup of coffee, so got up to make one. When I got back to the bedroom>>
Lola had pinched my warm and comfy spot. She does that a lot now, likes to lie where I've been or just curls up next to me on the bed or close by on the couch if I'm at the table in the lounge room.
Moving on to Pat's garden, that hasn't had a drop of watering apart from a bit of rain,
her roses are doing very well, in yellows,
a froth of white peeking over the rosemary, which has been trimmed to half its size,
my favourite sunset roses at the end of my front path, very close to where I last saw Angel,
and some very pretty pink ruffles that remind me of long ago little girl's party dresses.
Hibiscus are blooming in two tones,
and brilliant reds.
The neighbour's footpath garden is a big drift of blooming colour >>
it's grown and changed quite a bit, the yellows are new,
I believe they are Cosmos,
hollyhocks are standing tall, much taller than me
and dainty Gaura dances in the slightest breeze.
There are lilies in bright yellow,
and Queen Anne's Lace in abundance.
Finally, an entire (small) rose bowl of roses,
all on one handy main stem.
