The title is from a poem by John Brainard called Clouds.

On our evening walks I don't take my camera but I do take my phone-just in case...

After the storms yesterday, the light was beautiful and there was a double rainbow. Of course I wished for my trusty Nikon but the there appears to be a very grey area about whether or not you are allowed to do photography while exercising. Anyway, got me to think that I should add phone images to my 10 x 10 100 challenge. So here is No. 1.

I was almost home when I looked up and saw the flock of Ibis (I think) flying directly above in the gorgeous fluffy clouds blushing pink with the sunset. It was such a beautiful sight.

This is my happy photo for today's FFF+ Snap Happy theme of "Flower". Thank you to Margaret for the theme.
It has been four years since we dug up my mother's rose after learning our childhood home was going to be demolished (full story in link).

It has thrived since we planted it and continues to provide us with beautiful, perfumed blooms even though it would be over 50 years old. It is my favourite plant and makes me very happy that it is part of our garden.

Just a smell of the perfume brings back beautiful memories of my mother in the garden.

This year the FFF+ Group have decided to have a monthly challenge called "Freestyle On The Fifth". A different theme chosen by a member of the group each month, and the image is to be posted on the 5th of the month.

This month it was Greenstone Girl’s turn to choose the theme, and she chose “Change”

I have chosen an image of Harpo because bringing a new puppy into the home brings big change. I think one of the most positive changes is the joy of watching the relationship grow between Harpo and the eye-roller.

She sat down to play Fur Elise on the piano which immediately drew his attention. He climbed up onto the pile of washing beside the chair and then onto her lap. He happily sat there while she played.
He is fast becoming her shadow which is exactly what she wanted and needs right now.

The Midnight Swan was the name I had for this image until I learned about the passing of Bill Withers overnight, famous for his songs Aint No Sunshine When She's Gone and Lean on me.

I have always loved Aint No Sunshine, stands up there with my all time favourites, a song I grew up with.

On the image front, this is an attempted ICM down at the lake a few days ago. The lake was flooded with the huge dump of rain we had on the day. There was some light spilling across the lake from a gap in the clouds. With the grace of the swan, I thought a night-time image might work. I'm not sure if I pulled it off but am putting it up anyway. What's a bad image or two between friends!

I'm not exactly sure of the ID on this one. I thought it was a Metallic Cool -skink Carinascincus metallicus or perhaps a grass skink but I'm not sure. Someone out there might know.

I photographed t his pair in the car park at Mt Baw Baw. They were very relaxed, basking in the the sun so didn't mind me getting quite close with the macro-lens to capture this image.


I used to collect frogs and skinks all the time as a kid and keep them in tanks or let them go in the garden. Biologically not a good thing to do but as a child, it really stimulated my love and fascination for our wildlife.
