Sharing good news…
On Saturday 7th September 2015, Ron and I attended the awards ceremony at Hurstville City Library (a major centre in suburban Sydney, Australia).
As one who had been short-listed, I admit to being a trifle nervous as the results were about to be announced.
So it was with much delight that I learned that my entry entitled ‘More Than a Mere Bagatelle’- a short story about a child, her family, and a piano – had been awarded a Second Prize in its section.
Even better than the ‘Highly Commended’ that ‘The One That Got Away’ earned in the previous year’s competition…
Are my literary fortunes on the rise?

What a handsome bird am I…
I get the feeling that this male Chestnut Teal has that in mind as he struts boldly along the shore.

Oh, and apologies for my recent absence.
I love to see the Flannel Flowers. Right now they’re in flower, and it’s just the beginning of their season. They’re fussy about where they’ll grow, but fortunately for me they have chosen spots by the river and near the road that we drive along to get to the water. Their simple, daisy-like flowers hold a special charm.
