Our Beautiful World: Clouds

The theme this week at Our BeautifulWorld is Clouds. 

There have been some very pretty sunsets this week but I haven’t been in a position to photograph them.  But yesterday while visiting a friend in hospital we had a good view of the changing sky.  We were facing south so missed most of the pretty colours but I thought theses clouds were quite striking.

Thank you for visiting.

Card – Mondi

After posting my card last night I remembered a song we used to sing as children.
Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree,
Merry merry king of the bush is he.
Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra
Gay your life must be!

But we had another version we liked to sing.
Kookaburra sits on the electric wire,
Jumping up and down, with his pants on fire.
Ouch, Kookaburra, ouch, Kookaburra,
Hot your tail must be!

So for a bit of fun, my card tonight is a Kookaburra sitting on an electric wire.

Thank you for visiting.




The CASology cue word this week is electric.

Our Beautiful World: Fruit

The theme this week at Our BeautifulWorld is Fruit. 

These are quinces from my own garden. 

Summer in my garden smells of rosemary and lavender, autumn smells of apples and quinces.  I always wanted quinces in my garden because my Grandfather had them and I loved the smell and their fuzzy appearance.  I also like to eat them, either as a dessert or as jelly on toast.  You can buy them at the supermarket but they are not the same.

These photos are taken inside at night so the lighting isn’t very good.

Have a lovely weekend and thank you for visiting.
