winter colour

Well it has been cold. wet, blustery, and very much winter these last few days. Had to go out this morning and part way home drove inbto a very heavy downpour complete with hail. I certainly haven't felt like venturing out so have caught up on a few chores (oh I love tax time!) and have managed to put in a few stitches. But looking at the blog I discovered that I didn't actually put up the photos I collected last week. They were about winter too, colour and pattern mind must have got frozen.

 The miniature pomegranite - a bright spot in the front garden. Not sure if they are edible?
 Something new to me - black capsicums. Think they came from a 'mixed punnet' of seedlings

The amazing thing in all the cold is that our garden is still producing a few tomatoes and lots of capsicums and peppers


Sunset looking down our street, and the last leaves on the manchurian pear, along with big fat buds - already.

 A few scenes from the beach

 Norfolk Pine fronds standing up on a low branch

 We had lunch at Largs Bay a couple of weeks ago (very nice, at the Largs Pier Hotel) where I took this shot of the jetty. Yes, the jetty is in the picture, not all that visible, but I just liked the photo.

Also spotted these colorful fungi on the verge. They were black and white striped in their aged decomposing state.

And this is a shot of the stairs in the hotel. It is all nicely restored.

And now some stitching - this is 'Rules of the playground' which I entered in the Save our Coasts Coalition exhibition recently. Not a very good photo. I didn't take one before I entered it, not expecting it to be sold.

Next time some more postcards. I have some new jugs and echidnas to photograph and catalog (in my spare time of course) so will have some of those soon too for a change.
