It’s Wattle Time!

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 ©

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!

Still Out: Flannel Flowers

14 Dec

The Flannel Flowers that grow in the local bushland park are still in bloom, and brighten the day for those who see them. They seem to particularly thrive beside the roadside – a bonus for those who travel through. With a speed limit of twenty kilometres an hour, there’s opportunity to see them, and reason to pause…

Is This My Final Post Here? A Winter Sunset…

A Winter Sunset in Suburban Sydney, Australia

A Winter Sunset in Suburban Sydney, Australia

WordPress tells me my download space is all but used up. Some of you already know about my other blogs. They are mentioned in previous posts.

So, in the event that this is it *for here*, I thought I’d chose something appropriate: a winter sunset…

It’s only in winter that we in Sydney are treated to such wonderful colours. This is a view from a street near our home.

Enjoy!
