stills:: a morning in my garden

I spent a bit of time in the garden this week,
beautiful morning light..
..and I'm very grateful to the people who lived in our house before us who planted jonquil 'erlicheer' bulbs.
For the last 11 winters we've enjoyed these amazing blooms.

..and after pruning the roses we've got some buds already :)

ten on ten

Ten photos over ten hours on the tenth day of the month.
Looking for beauty in the ordinary.
It's a great way to document my day. 
Joining in with a bit of sunshine.

Starting  off with a cold & grey morning, this is what my 'tenth' looked like...

stills:: this week

I really love the beach.
I'm so grateful that I can get there often....



 


:: a candle
:: the glow of the sunrise behind the headland
:: early morning walking on the beach
:: sea mist at sunrise, only up at one end of the beach
:: walking back, long shadows with the sun behind us

plus I also went bushwalking this week- see here

bushwalking

Yesterday afternoon I went for a bushwalk with Charlie.
We found wide & narrow paths, beautiful light & fabulous views.
