the spring garden


These bright and cheerful Poppies were today spotted in the garden of much a loved family friend.
Dancing about in the breeze they were very popular with the bees - how fantastic is spring!

five little ducks went out one day..........................


.........well they went for a walk along Sandy Point rd anyway.
Drive slowly if you will as there are some new arrivals in town, 5 little duckings that are simply too cute!
The mighty toddler has often wondered where the ducks are off to when she spots them walking along the road, well imagine her amazement today when she saw these little guys waddling along.

water tower tall


Built in 1965 and used by many as a direction marker, some think the Somers Water Tower it is a bit of an eyesore.

Not me – I enjoy watching the changing shadows that are cast the throughout the year and the colours of the aging shell blending with the surrounding environment.

It’s all in the way that you look at it I guess.

wet start

Yay to the arrival of spring, no matter how wet it is.

As we feel the days getting longer and rejoice in the occasional bursts of warm sunshine, our gardens are simply exploding with colour and fragrance.

Our neighbor has the most spectacular planting of Freesias that have budded and are starting to bloom, their scent can be detected for some distance and herald to me the start of the best season of them all.
