It’s Wattle Time!

24 Jul

Margaret's Classic Posts

It’s Wattle time, here in Sydney, Australia.

In truth, there are species of Wattle out where I live almost every month of the year, but right now, it’s more than normally plentiful.

Here’s a photo of one that grows near the Georges River.2013_0902imagefacebook0113

Misty River…

Mists fascinate me, and none more than mists over water.

So peaceful…

Here is a photograph of just such as event, taken at our local baths on the Georges River in Sydney, Australia.

Enjoy!

A Pelican Flies Over the River

12 Jun

Margaret's Classic Posts

Our little white dog Chicki loves her daily walk by the river, but the main attraction for her seems to be the exciting smells that linger here and there. But for me, possibly the greatest lure is the prospect of seeing first-hand, beautiful birds of many varieties.

One of the rarest and spectacular sights is that of a Pelican. Yesterday, I spotted one one the river. Unfortunately, though, there were some unfriendly water-birds around who chased it off, despite its larger size.

I hope you enjoy this photo of a Pelican in flight. Copyright ©

Going off at a tangent, there will soon be a brand new novella released : ‘Love Denied’.MargaretLynetteSharp-LoveDenied-AdvertisingBanner-2 Fans of sweet romance set in post WW2 Australia, please take note (and tell your friends).           2015_1028imagefacebook0096

I Wish I Could Send You Its Perfume…

5 Apr

Margaret's Classic Posts

2015_0727imagefacebook0113 I wish I could send you its perfume… There’s nothing quite like the incredibly heady aroma that radiates from this spectacular plant. It reminds me of my childhood. A magnificent specimen grew in the front yard of my aunt, and as a child I would collect the fallen flowers (which still retained their charm) and place them in a shallow bowl of water, for use as a table decoration.

The plant we have growing in our front garden here came from my own childhood home, but there it grew simply in a large pot. Soon after we moved here, my parents planted it, and it’s thrived!

Here's looking at you - a Rainbow Lorikeet Here’s looking at you – a Rainbow Lorikeet

Rainbow Lorikeets are often seen in our local park, and those of us who keep a camera on hand find them hard to resist.

Their colours are so bright and varied- small wonder that their name reflects this.

They’re friendly, too, and I often see them nibbling at the tidbits willingly supplied by picnickers.

Enjoy!

A Tasty Morsel in Hand: A Cocky’s Delight

21 Mar

Margaret's Classic Posts

The sight of cockatoos always draws my eye. How happy I was the day I spotted this handsome bird, a tasty green morsel in hand…

Sometimes they flock by the river where I swim. Other times, they chose more precarious spots such as by the roadside in the park. Fortunately there is a very low speed limit!

Enjoy!

P.S. Update on the Countdown deal of ‘Uncertain Love’. I’m delighted to say that seven copies were downloaded in the UK, and two in the US. This is the second-best result I’ve ever had! Huge thanks to all those who supported it!

A Wet Kookaburra and a Countdown Deal!

14 Mar

Margaret's Classic Posts

It’s been unseasonably warm for Autumn here in Sydney, Australia, and what better way to cool off than splashing around in cool water…

This charming icon of Australian bird-life, the Laughing Kookaburra, is drying himself off after just such an experience in the little pool under the water bubbler in our local park.

In other news, my recently released title, ‘Uncertain Love’, has received its second review – this time from respected Goodreads librarian Marianne. And she liked it very much. _She’s also known as Cloggie Down Under). As luck would have it, this title is also right now a Countdown deal in the US and UK. Please spread the word, and help it make its very first sale!
