Stunning Hibiscus…

27 Feb

Margaret's Classic Posts

2015_0531imagefacebook0294There’s always something in flower in our front garden, whatever time of year. Right now we have Frangipani, daisies, and Hibiscus.

The Hibiscus is very eye-catching, and while it can’t compete with the Frangipani in terms of perfume, it’s hard to beat in the colour, size and texture department. I grew this one from a cutting – fortunately, since the original plant died.

Enjoy!

P.S. Thanks are due to everyone who helped spread the word about the free promotion of my collection of short stories, Encore’. At the half-way mark, it has already reached the Top 1000 in Amazon.com rank, and hundred of copies have been downloaded. I’m thrilled!

The Bottlebrush ranks high among my most-loved natives. Their brilliant colours and stunning form make them one of my favourite flowers to photograph. How delightfully do they respond to the play of light!

I hope you will enjoy seeing this flower in full bloom. The photo was taken in our own backyard. 2015_0531imagefacebook0156

On Top of The World: The Life of Chicki

15 Feb

Margaret's Classic Posts

Virtually every day, Chicki and I visit her favourite beach, beside the local swimming baths on the Georges River.

She seems to like nothing better than exploring, and although this beach is very small, it abounds in interesting sights and smells. I guess that most of the local canines would chose this place as their pick of destinations.

Enjoy!

Hello, Maggie!

Margaret's Classic Posts

What handsome birds are these Australian Magpies! So smartly feathered in black and white…

And what beautiful, musical sounds they make… To hear a caroling Magpie  is a treat for one’s ears.

Sometimes they’ve had bad press, especially in the breeding season, for swooping – but, since I normally wear a hat or cap when I’m in their territory, they’ve never bothered me.

P.S. Going off at a tangent, I’ve just released another sweet romance set in Australia!2015_1028imagefacebook0111

Heron in the Wind

1 Feb

Margaret's Classic Posts

White-faced Herons are solitary creatures, seldom seen in the company of others of their kind.

They don’t seem to care about the weather, for whether it’s sunny, wet, cloudy or windy, I usually see one strutting proudly and purposefully in the local river swimming baths.
