On the last day of work, I had worked out my schedule for the Christmas break up until the 4th January, 2021. Friday- Sunday (25-27th December chillout. Monday and Tuesday, mow the lawn and do some gardening. Wednesday and Thursday clean the house, then Friday to Sunday, rest and be back on Monday for work.
Without checking my local weather Forecast, I was so certain, I will finish my gardening on Tuesday. Waking up early on Tuesday morning, I looked out the window, it was a bad news all around, raining and it didn’t stop for a whole day.
Since the weather forecast was raining through to next week, I thought, I might as well buy some seeds and try planting them in summers sub tropical Climate weather and just pray that they will grow😊. My main fear was for the tinny seeds and that they will be washed away.
I also feared that they will never grow. Now, who plants flowers in Summers heat?. Lot of you are probably shaking your heads now. The way that I see it is that you will never know unless you try it☺️. So all I got to do now is wait and see if they will grow. Cheers for now, I hope that I can see you all next time with my backyard 🪴 results.

Visiting Canarvon Gorge, a national park 740kms north west of Brisbane, had remained on our to-do list ever since we arrived in Queensland over 30 years ago as other places took priority. What we got to see last week was out of this world but we would have like to have seen more with younger […]Canarvon Gorge walks — 2slowspeeds

This morning was the first time been out for a walk at Kemp Beach since the Covid-19 started. The sun shone on the water with the breeze on my face from the sea was fabulous. I saw two ladies walking toward me and asked me what I was doing. I told them I was just enjoying the morning and that I wanted to take some shots but its to bright for photos. They said to me to try and take some and also asked me where I was from, they probably thought I was new to the religion. told them I live around here, so they went on to say that yesterday, they were at the same beach collecting rubbish and it was their way of giving back to Mother Earth. I praised them for the wonderful thing they had done after that I was left speechless and guilty just for that walk. Why should I fell guilty just for a walk?. Don’t I have the same right to go anywhere I wanted to go like everyone else, hmmm.
Always loved the wild flowers, with a closeup shot of this one, and lovely yellow colour, its just a beautiful weed.
Thinking back to when I first received my birthday gift present, I was so thrilled bout it that I could not wait to take my Nikon Camera out for a spin. Drove 45 kilometres and found this to take a shot at, and the same time still learning how the new camera and its settings.
Trip to the outback of Queensland farm saw this wild one looking out from an old wracked truck, curious to see what’s going to happen. Sitting on a roof is the white colour collar neck with the yellow eyes one.
