Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Trees in Ebbet Park

Ebbet Park, 15.04.2016 155@0,1x

Good morning from a grey, rather soggy Hastings morning.  We had a lot of rain last night, but nothing like Auckland so I hope that those in Auckland are dry and ok.

So onto sunnier and warmer times for Cee’s Black & White challenge this week.  Thanks so much Cee for featuring my post last week. I really do appreciate it.

This week and next week will be about trees.  I have a lot of photos of trees.  I love them all year around.  I have one just outside my window which is very bare at the moment but still attract a lot of birds.  Very entertaining when I am on the computer.  Actually come to think of it, it is very, very quiet this morning.  Maybe they are hiding away in their nests, waiting for the sun to come out.

These trees are in Ebbet Park.  Which is right across the road from my house.

I love them in monochrome.  Then they have a timeless quality.

Friday’s Florals: To be a Daisy

Social Snappers in Hastings 342@0,1x

Said the other, little daisy, “I am very well content
To live simply in the meadow where the sun and rain are sent;
Where the bees all gather sweetness, and the dew falls on my head,
And the radiance of the moonlight is all around me shed.
“The grass and clover blossoms admire my beauty all day long,
As I listen to the music of a bird’s delightful song…”
~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, “Two Little Daisies” (1940s)  [The other little daisy was wishing to be a rose.
