Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Patterns

DSCF8778

This week the challenge from Cee is patterns.

I have gone for a mostly New Zealand theme with this fern – one of our national emblems.  The silver fern represents New Zealand on our national sports uniforms.

Here is another New Zealand tree – the cabbage tree.

Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge – Abbey has a haircut.

IMG_3493

Last week I took my mother with Abbey to get groomed.  She looked so pretty.  With both my parents being unwell they haven’t been able to groom her for a while so she was looking rather bedraggled. I had washed her once as the heat was getting to her and she was so funny running around drying herself.

This time she couldn’t wait to get home and show of her new coiffure.  I had to quickly snap some photos before she leapt out of the car to go to her dad.

Here is Michelle’s post to find out more about this challenge.

A Word in your Ear – Sign

DSCF4468

Good morning from a rather damp Hastings.

This weeks challenge for A Word in Your Ear is Sign.

I don’t usually take photos of signs. So  I am showing signs of autumn.  Last Saturday I was on a mission to take photos of autumn for this local photo competition.  So here are some I took.  I love the colours of autumn but am not looking forward to winter as I don’t cope to well with the colder weather.  I know the northern hemisphere are so relieved to get signs of spring after their horrible winter.
