the weather conditions prevailing in an area
in general or over a long period.

Before we moved to the Geelong area

I was told by two sources that the area was

drier than our Wester District home.

And the climate is considerably drier.

However, we nearly always receive

a heavy summer downpour…


…which can flood our backyard for a few hours.

I guess not really a flood, rather very wet.

Fortunately this is not our house.

In late July/early August his year we had

a few weeks of bitterly (for us) cold weather.

Although we did not receive aay snow fell to

five or  six hundred metres above sea level.

Thee best we received was a heavy

shower of hail in early August.

I don’t think we have received hail so heavy

in all our 15 years here.


Fandango’s One Word Challengr:   Climate





I do hope I have interpreted

Positive and Negative space


Negative space dominates positive space.


An approximated balance of

negative and positive space.


Finally positive space dominating negative space.


Whichever of the preceding images

you may prefer…

…each one looks better

than the original,

in my opinion.

Floral Friday20-1809-Pink-Daffodils



Again, home grown…

Past its best, but this is one of our…

…Pink Daffodils.

At their peak our new pink daffodils

were only a shade or two darker than in

my image and nowhere near the pink

in the eBay advertising image.
