Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Gardens


My contribution for this week’s



Some scenes from…

Geelong Botanic Gardens.

Bananas in the gardens did surprise me.

Bollards to be found all over Geelong’s tourist areas.

Even with my red and green colour visions loss…

I can distinguish this red and green.

An ideal location for some of those special photos.

Staying with a bird theme again this week.

I have been told by a local fisherman and

Victorian Birders Facebook Group…

that this is a Pacific Gull.

Again a new one to me.

Where else can they be found?


Hope you enjoyed.

Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge-17Wk-21_Taji


Odd Ball

Week 22, 2017

May 22

This morning I fed the dogs as I normally do in the evening.

MGW usually feeds them.

Candi on the chain so she can have ‘breakfast in bed’ and Taji nearby.

Breakfast in bed is a euphemism for keeping Candi settled

while she ate her breakfast 12 months ago.

She only had to look sideways and a big yellow head

would dive into her bowl and breakfast was over…for Candi.

This morning I fed both as I do at night…at their kennels.

Note Taji’s chain hanging over the post.

She spent around fifteen minutes acting as if

she was tied up…never moving more than her chain

let her from her kennel.

And I thought Labradors were bright!??

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-1905_Traces-of-the-Past

Although this shed is close to Geelong…

each time I pass it, I am reminded of Dad’s first wool shed.  

I don’t really remember shearing sheep in that old shed it was

used for many years to store bales of hay.  

 After the hay was used it was deemed that the

old blue-stone woolshed had passed its used by date.  

We did keep the blue-stone wall.

However the new owner saw fit to raze the area.


 Again only about an hour’s drive from Geelong.

This building is very similar to the old store in my hometown.

The main similarity now is that both are unused.

 I imagine that the locals would gather on the seat

out front of this house and chat away

the summer evenings and warm winter days.

Nowadays, however, everyone is much to busy

for that kind of lifestyle.
