Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
Huge thanks to Cie who gave me this wonderful Sunday Selections image.
The meme was then continued by River at Drifting through life. Sadly she has now stepped aside (though she will join us some weeks), and I have accepted the mantle.
The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent. Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to me. Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.
I usually run with a theme. While our visitor was with us we went back to the Australian National Botanic Gardens. It was windy that day. Very windy. So windy that most of the gardens were closed for safety reasons. We still spent a very happy couple of hours there - and enjoyed ourselves. There was colour everywhere we looked.
There were plenty of water dragons too, in varying sizes.
We were told that the Eastern Brown Snakes were about too - but didn't see any.
There were birds...
Magpies are one of my favourite birds. I adore their call.
An Australian Wood duck family.
And a crimson rosella.
There was a heap more colour too.
Do you wonder that we love it?
In other news. My head is not in a good or a safe place. I am struggling a bit at the moment and am largely stepping away from the blogosphere. Despair and darkness are my strongest emotions at the moment and I am in the middle of a vicious attack of the inadequacies, which is a truly rotten time to try and interact with others.
I will continue to post Words for Wednesday, but will probably not play.
I am still working out the schedule for this fun meme for the coming year and will let you know the outcome when it is finalised. Huge thanks to all those who volunteered to provide the prompts.
I may continue to post splashes of beauty for Sunday Selections but will, as I have this week, turn off the comments. I hope to return sooner rather than later.
I hope your lives are full and happy.
PS: I am having huge problems with my email at the moment. When I send a message it appears in my sent folder. And maybe it has gone, and maybe it hasn't. So, if you are expecting or waiting for an email from me, please nudge me and I will try again.
