I have been taking the pictures for the Photo A Day Challenge every day, but have been failing to put them up here. So - here they all are in a collection, including poor old Number 19, which was taken on the correct day, but I kept forgetting to share it...oops!
|Day 19: Delicious|
The currant cake was enjoyed so much that another one was recently baked and enjoyed for morning tea - most delicious!
|Day 23: Electric|
I wasn't feeling very creative on that day....a pigeon on a power line with another tower in the background was as good as it got!
|Day 24: Stripes|
A rainy week means lovely cool weather, which also means plenty of knitting opportunities. My stripey mitered blanket is growing nicely....I love how the yarn patterns like this all by itself!
|Day 25: Landscape|
Now this prompt I pondered. Our small town doesn't really have much landscaping in it, or none that I know of! I was starting to think that I'd just have to photograph the flowers on the round-about when I realised that a landscape didn't have to be a lush garden. It was simply the scape of the land, or, according to google -
All the visible features of an area of countryside or land, often considered in terms of their aesthetic appeal.
So, I photographed one of the many farms in our area, whilst on an early morning walk with Rilla. I know that farms aren't usually considered in terms of their aesthetic appeal, but I quite like the contrast of the deep red, volcanic soil mixed with the yellow of the sugar cane, and the bright green of younger plants.
|Day 26: Together|
I thought of many things to photograph for today, but none of them seemed right. Then I saw this beauty in the garden, feeding on the chive flowers. Butterflies and flowers belong together.
Have a happy Australia day!
And - for my overseas readers - have a happy weekend!
