Recent Favourites




Miss E chose her first ever nightgown, she loved it so much she slept all night wrapped tightly in it.
This is her happy, almost-awake gorgeousness the next morning.....




Early morning dew drops on strawberry leaves.




Overnight raindrops dangling from a grevillea flower style, glistening in the early sunlight.







Our red gerbera as seen yesterday.







Miss O with hot pink stick, playing her first "C Grade" women's game today. She is making up numbers for a local school team of girls two years older than she is. Rather brave considering this is her first ever hockey season. Miss O is also playing in a team of girls her age. We have four playing hockey this "winter", most playing in two teams each.




Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!




PS Just took this from our back deck as our annual town Show concluded with some fireworks!
Must work out to take better fireworks photos one day.....

Sharing at Weekly Top Shot, Our World Tuesday.

These photos are ABSOLUTELY exquisite! Miss E's eyes are so expressive, they just about reach through the computer. What an assortment of styles from Miss O's wonderful sport shot, to gorgeous flower and nature shots. And, black and white fireworks have a charm of their own :) Great post!

OMG! Your pictures are out of this world...at least out of my comfort zone and world. I am still trying to get a water droplet with a reflection to no avail. Still I refuse to give up. That one picture of the dew drops was heavenly. Beautiful flowers, too. Great macros. genie
