Floral Friday Challenge.

It that time of the year again.

Bulbs are in flower and our erlicheer Jonquils

have been out in force for sometime now,

heralding spring is just around the corner.

 

 

Another horticultural link with the farm.

We inherited a small parch of snowflakes

and brought them with us.

Whether timing  or climate I am not sure,

however they have put on a display this year.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letters-AP

~~~

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Beginning with Letters-AP

~~~~~

Words beginning with Ap…

This gorilla is a member of the Ape family,

and also a member of the Melbourne Zoo family.

 

Fifty or sixty years ago these were known as ‘flats’.  

One or two bedrooms for small family or singles.

 

These days they are known as ‘units’.

Could they also be called apartments,

or are they too small?

 

Finally looking down the aperture, or trying to see it,

of my Nikkor 70-300 zoom lens.

Whether in…York…

or in Brugge…

 

we always found some gold handiwork

shining at us.

Weekly-Weather-Hurricane

The closest thing we have to Hurricanes are Whirlwinds,

also known as Willy-Willys.  However, our whirlwinds

while looking like a hurricane or tornado, only last

a few seconds, minutes at most, and are usually

in the open and do little or no damage.


The only experience I have with damage from this

weather phenomenon was in the 1900s or early 2000s.

Note the right hand side of my woolshed roof is

whiter cleaner, newer.

A six foot long sheet of iron was found in a paddock

100 metres away.

I remember thinking it was a pity that the other side

was not damaged as well,

so I could have replaced the whole roof.

It surely needed replacing.

However, we gone a little over two years

after this photo was taken.
