Golden




















15 years ago this month we moved into our home and not once have we seen a golden spider lily flower in the backyard. Yes, we have a few of these lilies in the front yard but it was a wonderful surprise to see this one flower below the frangipani by the back steps.

Other golden spots this week - watching and listening to the birds, including this little honeyeater; kangaroos seeking shade at church; enjoying several different butterflies including Blue Triangle and Oleander; noticing colours and textures on a nearby pecan nut tree.
Just yesterday I opened an account on Instagram  - so quick and easy to use and a fun way to keep up with many others and happenings. So much yet to explore.

Beautiful yellow flowers, birds, and of course butterflies. Thank you also for the kangaroos, because I like to look at them. Yours sincerely.

What wonderful photos!!!!

I could see two of those butterfly photos turned into needlework. Would you mind if I used your photos for inspiration? These would eventually be for sale.

I hope you and your family have a lovely weekend there in your home sweet home.
