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. Despite the slowly reducing restrictions here we are both firmly in the vulnerable category (himself has now has a lung spontaneously collapse three times) and are still mostly at home.
Sorry, but this is going to a bit same old, same old.
I featured corellas (again) this week. This morning (a grey and drizzly morning) they were shrieking for food early. As were other birds. I put out seed which went down very quickly. I hand fed the king parrots. And then I took out some apple.
I was very surprised to see a young (and whinging) corella shove his parent out of the way and daintily munch apple.
However he (and I have no idea whether I am correct) was also shoved out the way. Pushed out by a cockatoo who absconded with all of the apple.
I had put other apple pieces out in less cockie accessible places so no-one missed out.
I have been revelling in the garden too. Each year we wonder whether the frost or the tree dahlia blooms will arrive first.
This year was a bit of a draw. We have had a mild frost and the leaves of the tree dahlia are a bit sad.
However there are blooms too.
And the ones in the back yard have done better and (so far) are frost free).
There are other garden joys too. Lots of them.
I saw something this week which made me think. It said word to this effect:
We are all in rough waters at the moment - but our boats are very different.
Sadly true. I hope all of your boats are seaworthy and equipped with life boats.
Stay safe, stay well.
