in or after a short time


In April 2020 we had to postpone

our June African Safari.

It was postponed until June 2021 which,

at the time, seemed a long way off.

However, with a COVID outbreak in Sydney,

and both hard and soft border closures along

with quarantine procedures being introduced

at the drop of a hat, I think the sooner we can

hopefully postpone again, the better.


One Word Sunday Challenge:…Soon









Christmas Tree 2020.

Like the rest of 2020 Christmas is going

to be different this year, not so much

due to COVID rather  personal circumstances. 

Our eldest is in New Zealand for Christmas

awaiting the birth of the first child. 

No 2 Soon is going to lunch with his in-laws,

however, we will see him on Christmas Eve

for Carols and again on Christmas night. 

This year instead of around 20 for

Christmas lunch there will

only be eight.

I’m not sure if this is crazy, however…

…after years of talking about edging

a garden bed we call  the orchard


…finally talk came to fruition back in August/September.


This past weekend…

…I captured a few images for this forum and

for my pictorial records.


Due to my limited photoshop skills some

of these images appear washed out.

While lightening shadows

I lost highlight clarity.



I  don’t expect this bed to be completed before Easter.

The final touch will be mulching; if I can locate

a suitable much that will not blow away.


Meanwhile, Petunias brighten the bed until soil settles

over the summer months.
