Pampas Grass.

Today I sighted this stand of Pampas Grass.

At least that is what I hope it is called.

Pampas always looks good on someone else’s place.

It makes a good wind break here, but is also known as invasive,

noxious and not an agricultural problem because

livestock will eat the young plants

depending on which web site you visit.

Considering African elephants are known to carry

seeds of the trees they eat and spread them

via their droppings I would rather not have any

livestock I owned eating pampas for breakfast.

Hope you enjoyed.

Geelong.

A few weeks ago I rose early in anticipation of a good sunrise.

Although the Geelong Football Ground shows clearly

there was too much cloud to even see the sun rise.

Best I could do was some cloud shots.

After a coffee it was of to the foreshore…

and all it has to offer tourists and locals alike.

And a visit to the foreshore would not be complete

without some bollards in a shot.

Hope you enjoyed.

Dew.

A heavy fog on Wednesday night and this was the result.

I’m not sure that this looks its best with this tint.

But it was a pretty sight…a fine cobweb covered in dew drops.

And one of our soon the be ripe apples.

For the past few weeks the dogs have been eating

lower and fallen apples…with relish.

Not sure whether to call this the Yacht Club, the Marina,

or play it safe and refer to the

Valentines Day 2017, has come and nearly gone

at the time of writing this post.

The big difference this year was…

sunset_geelong_4891The big difference this year was that No 1 Son’s girlfriend

organised a fish and chip dinner/eat out

at Geelong’s Eastern Beach.

Although a bit on the chilly side of hot for this time of year,

a great night was had by all.

MGW had been telling any of the school girls who asked

what she was doing for Valentines Day,

that we were double dating with our son and girlfriend,

which they thought, or said, was pretty cool.

Not sure if No. 1 Son would have thought so.

However, he is no longer the boss!!!!

Why fish and chips?

It is something she has missed,

or has not had ‘family’ to share it with,

since moving to Melbourne.

  It also gave me an opportunity to capture some sundown silhouettes.

About twenty to thirty minutes drive from Geelong

is an area known as The Golden Plains

goden_plains_0182

In early February the reason for its name hardly needs explaining.

Both grasses and paddocks have taken on

a dry golden hue as summer  is drawing to a conclusion.

Well in a few weeks it should be cooling.

I’m not sure if Picasa’s Heat Map pre-set actually show

the ‘hot’ areas of a photo, however,

this is a fair representation of hot and cool/cold areas

in this lansdscape today.

Hope you enjoyed.
