PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 16th February 2013 is ‘Miniscule’

One morning as I was putting out my shop’s signs I saw these miniscule toadstools appear overnight in a small strip of earth alongside the shop wall.

They were so pretty.

Toadstools
I love the frills and dots. They were about 2 inches / 5 cm tall.
Toadstools
24 hours old these toadstools are changing, not as bright coloured and they are losing their dots and frills

You can see how miniscule they are in context to their surroundings

PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 26th January 2013 is ‘Knitted’

I taught myself to knit when I was 19 which was many many many…… years ago. I recently knitted some baby clothes for an online friend as a present for her expected baby. My local town also was yarn bombed as part of an Arts Festival and I loved how structures were covered in knitting.

Blanket
A soft yellow baby blanket with a lovely lacy pattern which was not hard to follow or knit.

Baby booties
I love to knit baby booties, so simple and quick to produce a finished set, yet I cannot knit socks. Go figure!

Yarn bombing at library
The tree and bike rack in front of the local library were yarn bombed and I am seriously impressed with the knitted effect.
Yarn bombing at Rotunda
The local rotunda also received being yarn bombed with colourful knitted decorations.

And as an aside today (26th January) is Australia Day Celebrated annually on 26 January, the date commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove, New South Wales in 1788 when Australia was first colonised

PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 19th January 2013 is ‘Haven’

I live in an area called The Coorong and it is an area that is protected by a world-wide Ramsar Convention agreement. My area is a wetlands of international importance for birds.

Many birds seek haven in the area.
