  1. Every photo uplifts my heart, as I see your beautiful part of the world. If I had to pick only ONE, ( and so hard to do that) it might well be " Land ,sea and sky" and when I think, we share the same sky, land and sea, although miles and oceans apart, the water is the same, sky with sun or moon, and land up top or down under, True colour indeed. Cheers to all at your home, Jean.

      Thanks, I am happy you enjoy my Saturday Morning Post series. Soph has her favourite spot up on MacDonald Hill (which you will see in July!!!) and can't wait to take us there each time we go......she plunks herself down and starts to roll around!!

    1. Thanks Keith! I really like hearing which photo everyone likes best.....shows how subjective this all is and how differently we perceive things.
      In my living room eh.......

    1. Debra, thanks. It is my favourite too. I was happy at how yesterday's came out....I am always unsure when I take 'scenic' ones like that.

    1. Thanks Martha! Our garden, much like ourselves, is in maintenance mode.......we prune, take out, add on occasion and move things around and very occasionally plant something new. It had grown up so over the past 20 years....as you can well imagine. We are happy with it.
