Look Up, Look Down Challenge-3

My first contribution to

Look Up, Look Down.

Roof_1940

I took this shot about two months ago as I found the roof fascinating.  It was the first time I had seen a slate tiled roof, at close quarters, and could only marvel at the workmanship and how well it has lasted.

The right roof above this door is where the first photo was taken.  I have walked through this door many times but only looked up once.

Better Homes and Gardens television program last Friday.

Apart from the first image, a repost, all others are the result of a quick drive around the extended neighbourhood…

Wattle trees, and now shrubs, are members of the Acacia family.

Limelight_1869

 This last image is one of several Acacia Limelights we have in our garden.  We have yet to see a flower, which is normal.  However, we have planted some above a pebble mulch and discovered the hard way that these pretty little shrubs are dirtier, and scruffier, than teenage boys below that pretty green exterior.
