The blossoms are wonderful now, blooming every where you look in all shades of pink and white. This wax eye popped up and suprised me. Usually I am to slow but this time luck was on my side!

This bud is just bursting at the seams to break out in full bloom. I love this time of year…almost as much as Autumn!

Today we went on a bike ride and then for a walk down to the Kaiate Falls, which are in the hills behind Welcome Bay. This is just one of the pools we came across and I will be posting more photos of the stunning scenary tomorrow. The walk included a steep hike down and then up steps to get back to the top – but it was worth it!

The temperature was just starting drop for the night when I took this shot. Another hour and the light would be gone. I thought it looked like half the sky wanted to rain and the other half did not…

Without trying to make excuses…I have many! Sick kids, school holidays and an unexpected house guest for the last week…it’s been so hard to find my way back to blogesphere. 5 minutes to do a post,  no worries, 10 minutes to race around the globe and post a quick “Great! Nice Pic!” comment..I could do that too, BUT time to sit and enjoy, post a comment or compliment and really visit not fly by…that’s been the hard bit. So…today I hope will  be the day when I can do all of the above! If you don’t see my name pop up please remember that I am there in thought! I hope to make the most of this week photographing magnolias (like the ones below) and winter goodies, my daughter is due for major surgery on the 21st and I’ll do my dissapearing act again then no doubt!
