Ginger, my Black and Tan Kelpie.  The Kelpie is an Australian sheep dog.  The Black and Tan, Red and Tan, Red or Brown Kelpies are the most popular and widely known colours.

Apparently Kelpies can also be Black, Chocolate and Fawn.  All colours I have never knowingly seen.

Another Kelpie, Brandy…and his sidekick, Zoey. Sadly, Brandy passed away, suddenly, in September 2001.  This photo would have been taken a couple of years before he died. Ginger was born two or three weeks before Brandy, her father, died.

A Word a Week Photography Challenge ~ Ornate 2

~~~~~

I was asked if my Cactus flower in my first

Word of the Week Challenge this week,

was real.

~~~~~

Cactus_0232

The flower feature came from this ‘bush’.  I have left the brick in the picture for scale opurposes.  I think bricks are about 20 cm long.

~~~~~

Cactus_0244

It is planted on the north face of our house.  Hot, dry and cold in winter.  It is the third time we have planted the bed as the elements make it hard for plants to thrive.

Roses were the previous occupants and they were blown and broken in high winds.

Note the second plant in this photo.

~~~~~

Cactus_0247a

Number two plant along with my brick to give a sense of scale.

The largest flower is below….

~~~~~

Cactus_0247c

…not the same one published previously, but very similar.

~~~~~

Cactus_0253

Maggie had to stick her nose in.  This is the ‘bush’ from whence the first ‘Ornate’ photo was derived.

~~~~~

Cactus_0254

Once again the pavers have been left in the photo for scale.  Each one is 30 centimetres in length.

Do you push the elevator button more than once and do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

Definitely. As a red car goes five percent faster than any other colour, so does pushing the elevator multiple times. Whether calling the car, or inside it, pushing multiple times tells the computer to hurry up ‘coz there are multiple people to carry! Logical. 🙂

~~~~~

If you had the choice between an RV, a sports car, truck, SUV, or a bicycle, which would you choose and why?

Another easy one to answer. I have ALWAYS wanted a red Mercedes sports car. Why? because it would go five percent faster!!!!!

~~~~~

If you HAD to change your name, what would you change it to?

I presume this is a change to both Christian name and Surname. Even after thinking about this one all I can come up with is…Bill Smith. A generic name type name (apologies to all Bill Smiths) to indicate males. Dare I say, it is a bit like John and Jane Doe. In other words, I have no idea what name I would choose. How sad!

~~~~~

Is it more important to love or be loved?

I think that this is an each way bet. You can love all your life, but without being loved your life will be empty.
