winter afternoon

such a beautiful day today … frost this morning, then sunshine and just a hint of spring in the air

visited our block after work this afternoon, and couldn’t resist taking these photos of a wonderful gum tree not far from where our house will be built

2 trees and a mountain

Following on from my post about a wombat, I thought I’d share these photos:

a giant gum tree –


a blackwood tree –


and a view of Mt. Elephant –


These were all taken on our block of land near St. Marys – I guess it’s not hard to see why we’ve decided to put down roots here! (And yes, that is the owner of the 1949 Anglia Tourer in the above photo …)
