Floral Friday




I found these Bird-of-Paradise plants in Geelong,

a few weeks ago…
bird-of-paradiseand waited patiently for our plants to bloom…

forgot to photograph them until this morning,

by which time they had suffered the effects of a

hot (30 plus degrees) day yesterday

and are now past their best.

A Word a Week Photography Challenge-Companion


My contribution for this week’s

 Word of the Week Challenge…



My initial reaction was to use these photos, this week.
brandy-dc2001-2Brandy and me in 1988/89.
brandyy-dc_2-3He was my faithful companion until…
brandy-dc2002-2he died suddenly in 2001.

ginger0002He had worked hard all his life.  Fortunately he had sired a litter of pups…

gingerwhich were born a week or so before he died.

Ginger who has featured on this blog filled the void left by Brandy.

She is now the same age as Brandy was when he passed away,

however, she does not look anywhere near as old as he did,

because she has not worked as hard…

in fact hardly worked at all.

I am referring to working with sheep.

So for around a quarter of  century I have had

two very faithful canine companions.

Some scurried away to protect their young…

Which Way Challenge-14-Wk-20


With a whirlwind on the horizon of Botswana’s Sua Salt Pan…


we were happy that we had good guides with us

when we reached this intersection of tracks…


because we did not know which way to go.
