Gardens and such at The Writer’s Room.

A bit rushed this week, there’s been gardening and ANZAC Day and a multitude of little jobs to complete. I took this last week just after sunup, the mist retreated and clung to the mountain like fairy floss.

This pair were a little disappointed yesterday morning, someone else ate the remaining seed.

‘Okay you lot, I’ll dazzle him with my charm and good looks while you make a break for it through the fence.’


This rose is from a friend’s garden but they gave us a clipping to grow our own. Can’t wait.


If you remember last week’s post with the pathway of white heart arches, well this is where it ends. Due to the amount of people around I couldn’t get a whole view from start to finish.

Wedding Chapel.

This fine looking outfit is part of the Laidley Light Horse re-enactment troop. They were part of the parade on Anzac Day. We marched behind them and let me say that I’m still nimble on my feet while dodging the little offerings left by the horses.

I can’t recall the name of this tree but the flowers are great. Didn’t see the bee at first, it looks like he’s bathing in a little pollen bathtub.


After taking last week’s sunset I shot this while waiting to go in for dinner. By the time we’d finished our meal the tide was in and a gale blew salt spray everywhere. It’s called the Lighthouse and the food is excellent.

One thing I find amazing about the Wood ducks in this picture is that they’ve all survived. Their ranks are usually thinned right down to two or three by predators at this stage, a bit of good parenting I’d say. Anyway I took the pic through the car windscreen, the wallaby looks like she’s playing crossing guard.

This rotunda is at the gardens from last week, where they hold marriage ceremonies. The life size deer statue in the background looks a little lost.


I felt like a voyeur when taking this shot. With the street lamps she should have plenty of light to read by at night. πŸ™‚


Another week over and more pictures to troll through. I hope you enjoy them and come back next week to see what’s on offer at The Writer’s Room.

      Thanks mate. yeah, you’d think she would get with the times eh? Food? I had the Reef and Beef. Garlic prawns (shrimps) over a medium rare Eye fillet and sweet potato chips (fries).

    What appeals to me most is your pictures of nature and its elements. The photograph with the mountains being covered as if it is a blanket laying over them. The roos picture. They are beauties and you have their facial expressions. Great job. Of course the colours are very defining in all of the pictures. Clear, concise, almost as if the animals were real.

        It’s usually one’s inner critic that stops them from relaxing. You know the voice, ‘Do something, there’s work to be done, you can’t sit and do nothing.’ I tell it to eff off. πŸ˜‰

        You’re welcome. I read that that the emojis are going to become the newest crave of communication. Something else that can potentially become a brain twister. 😁✌ have a wonderful weekend!
