Raining on the Terrace .......


North Terrace ~

raining along the terrace - an unusual sight for this time of the year
when everything is normally bone-dry !!
So nice to see reflections on pavements 
and parasols in pretty colours

Summertime ......




One of my favourite things to do in the Summertime is to head into
our Central Markets and fill my basket with fruits.
grapes - figs - cherries - peaches - apricots
and if it's not too hot - a big bunch of sunflowers
Makes me feel good to be alive !

Summer Roses ......



One of the joys of Summer in my home state is the beautiful array of roses
they bloom off and on for at least 6 months of every year
bringing us much delight plus adding colour to our suburban street-scape

I spotted this beauty in a walled garden in the Adelaide Hills
 and thought it deserved to be shown off

just before sunrise ......





just before sunrise is the prettiest time of the day for photography
I left the shutter open and my camera has picked up soft pastels of pink and aqua
which were almost un-noticed to the natural eye.
Of course coffee in a nearby café after
was very welcome

Lotus Blooms .......




Sacred Lotus flowering in our Botanic Gardens

Every year I look forward to photographing these beautiful blooms
and so very early this morning as I rounded the bend with umbrella
tripod and camera in hand , and was delighted to see a pond of tall pretty pink blooms
swaying in the morning breeze

Jacaranda Time ....





It's Jacaranda time again and Adelaide's streets are awash with blooms
These pics were taken in and around the University Grounds
which provide the perfect back-drop for a purple haze




Wishing all my blogger - friends at Our World Tuesday
a wonderful and blessed Christmas - Time

skywatching ....




 early morning along Semaphore Jetty
with just a few fishermen dangling their lines
hoping for a good catch

Water Sculpture .......


~  Henley Jetty Water Sculpture  ~

Shortly after sunset at that beautiful time of day
this metal sculpture which doubles as a shower
for beach -goers - reflects golden colours
from the sinking sun

Quack Quack ........



Isn't life funny  - when it's freezing cold I look for cosy environments
and can't wait for Summer but after 2 quite warm days
I'm ready for a cool change and commence seeking out cool green pastures.

Pacific Black ducks are quite common in Adelaide
but I always think they have such tranquil faces

The Last of the Spring Blossoms .....



~ Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens ~

This pic was taken last month with just a touch of
the remaining spring blossoms intermingled with fine tracery of bare branches

Soon this vista will 
 be a mass of differing shades of green
and I will love it just as much
