for the main blog of poetry, whimsy and maybe beauty, now

Tuesday, 19 February 2008

Well, I was a bit in the blah-doms despite having finished massive assignment, or perhaps because of finishing it. I am sure there are healthier pastimes than sitting in front of this computer, anyway. Am thankful that I have had the chance to start up swimming again, but instead of writing ad infinitum about laps, and the pool and the peace and such things, I might put up a few images that show that maybe, really, spring is just around the corner.

Some of the Siberian geese or swans seemed to be flying home the other day, so perhaps they know.

Anyway, these pictures are for a friend of mine who has had a little too much of winter. I hope she enjoys their whimsy. They are all taken on my balcony.


The beginning of winter. The midst of winter. And today! The thongs (yes, that's what we call them in Oz) sure look prettier in winter, though!

Sorry about the bright brown there, and of course it is not a garden to be proud of, but see what it has just freed itself of! Of course I know where she comes from you wouldn't even be getting an outline of the things pictured above - I could not imagine living in the type of snow that she does, but many people do, all over the world. Anyway - just a little bit of warmth for her, and for those who are waiting for a few rays of sun.

As for the Aussies who are suffering from the heat, well, just rest your sunburnt eyes on the snow pics for a while.
