Good morning from a cold and blustery morning. I am up very early as I have a lot to do today and I am taking part in the Blossom Parade today dressed up as a Suffragist. At least I have a very long, very warm woollen retro coat to keep warm.
This week Ben Huberman is living on the edge. That is our prompt is edge.
Good morning from a cooler spring morning here in Hastings. As you can tell from my posts this morning spring is here. Well so far at least. But the weather is expected to turn nasty for the next couple of days. Hopefully it is only for a couple of days as we have our Blossom Parade this Saturday. For some reason I thought it was the following Saturday but got a nasty jolt yesterday when I found out it was this Saturday instead. So I have had to quickly make my hat last night and organise my clothes.
These photos were taken on the first day of spring – 1st September. So how could I resist the daffodils.
And we were serenaded by this lovely lady playing her violin. It really added to the ambiance of spring.
Good morning from a crisp but sunny Hastings morning. As I was working on my computer I had one eye on the skies outside. We had another great sunrise. I was a bit reluctant to go out, thinking it was a tad too cold. But my itchy fingers took over and I went out with my cellphone and got some nice photos. They are for a later post.
Yesterday I got to meet Aletta from Nowathome. It was great getting together and I got to show off Cornwall Park at it’s best. Beautiful colours, calm waters and fantastic reflections.
The ducks were very vocal and active. As we were walking around the back of the cricket pavilion I spotted these ducklings. It was rather funny. Every time we went to get closer, having only a cellphone on me, the ducklings would get up and walk towards their mother. But they kept the same distance each time. Another way of surviving the late summer/autumn weather and other aggressive ducks is staying together. Which they did. They always settled down in the same way too.
It was hard to get away from them.
I want to showcase our animal kingdom. It runs from Tuesday New Zealand time and is weekly. You can join in anytime at all over the week. You can post your furry friends (babies), wild animals, birds, insects and butterflies. Even reptiles are welcome.
Thanks for visiting and I would love to see your animal friend of the week.
I have gone very abstract for Cee Neuner‘s black & white challenge today. I do have lots of photos like these. I am fascinated by the water reflections as no photo is never the same. Mesmerising actually.
I must apologise for yesterday. Wordpress refused to let me do much at all. I couldn’t upload photos at all, and it wouldn’t let me publish any words either. Very, very frustrating. So it was a relief to find it working today.
This week Cee Neuner is asking us for things that are wet. So first up is a tiny cygnet lost among the waters.
And onto something large – these logs among the waves at Westshore Beach.
And a duck in some interesting waters at Cornwall Park.
