Garden Photos For Foto Finish

This weeks topic for Foto Finish is gardens. These photos were taken about 18 months ago at the beginning of summer 2009.

My husband had recently made the raised vegetable gardens. The straggly hedge in the foreground was replaced with a fence last year to support tomatoes. One of my flower gardens is in the background in front of the swimming pool wall.

The beautiful girls are my oldest two granddaughters Tyla and Ella. The oldest one turns seven next weekend and the younger of the two will be five in August.

Queensland Birdlife

These are some of the birds we saw on our recent stay in Queensland.
The long billed bird is an Ibis and they are everywhere along the seafront.

The colourful little birds who visited us on our balcony one morning are Rainbow Lorikeets.

We have just returned from a week on the Gold Coast in Australia. We were there for a reunion with some of the people we travelled around Canada and Alaska with two years ago. We travelled with an Australian company and were the only two Kiwis among 44 Australians. Needless to say we very quickly became honorary Aussies for a few weeks. Twenty three of us met up on the Gold Coast for the reunion last weekend.

Fun and Games for Foto Finish

I have so many photos of the grandchildren at play that could have been used for this weeks Foto Finish "Fun and Games" it was hard to choose which images to use. These two photos were taken just over a year ago when the girls were staying with us for a couple of days at our holiday home. They were having great fun jumping the waves with their poppa.

Foto Finish-What Is It

Barbara from Cat Patches asked us to post photos this week that have perhaps been taken from a different angle or cropped differently.

This is a photo of my granddaughters leg as she was jumping into our pool.
