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.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
A few garden photos to begin with:
my jades have put on a better show than I expected, with the flowers lasting quite a long time
here's a close-up in case you forgot how pretty these starry little flowers are
my favourite wind spinner is more visible now the leaves have dropped from the trees, the little cups either side of the dragon catch the wind and as it spins the turning spiral makes the ball look like it is rolling up and down, but of course that is an illusion as it stays in one place.
here's something I haven't had in a long time, roasted potatoes and baked cauliflower in cheese sauce. The brownish stuff sprinkled on the sauce is sweet paprika. I had this with a pork&veal meatloaf which would have been much nicer if I hadn't forgotten to put garlic in the mix.
These next photos are for Andrew (and anyone else who is interested), my other clothes drying (airing) rack.
I have two of this style:
here is one completely folded, a little smaller in size than the one I showed last week.
and here it is fully opened. the top wings measure 150cm end to end, but the whole rack is quite narrow with each rail being only 51cm wide. So again, only suitable for smallish things.
these side supports just clip under the side rails of the top wings
while this little doohickey is completely wrapped around the support on one side and clipped onto the wing rail. It can be slid over to one side so as not to be in the way when hanging anything.
the basic frame is an A shape with a few centre rails, but I find those difficult to access with my shoulder/neck troubles. Having to bend down to reach them and crick my neck slightly upward is awkward, so I rarely use the center rails that form the - of the A
you may notice this style doesn't have wheels, but it slides easily and it fairly lightweight, available from Cheap as Chips for around $40

and once again, Lola, doing what she does best.
Next week, V's table loom and her current project, for Joanne, who I hope is feeling much better now.
