Lovely Little Lizard

There’s a lovely little lizard, under my rubbish bin.
It’s a lovely little lizard, with a long blue tongue.
And lovely little lizard, likes lying in the sun.
Watching little lizard, is loads and loads of fun.

Passionate About Something

Bee2UpsidedownLavender2013

You know you’re passionate about something when you’re willing to hang upside down to get it. What a delightful sight. The bee’s wings are so delicate, so intricate. It’s such a treat to sit on the ground in the garden, especially after hours of work, and be  mesmerised by something as simple as a bee hanging from a lavender bush.

The Day Brightens

The sky is dark and gloomy, and there’s a chill in the air. Rain refuses to stop. On and on it falls. It’s not quite the recipe for a favourite day. But then, on the ornamental grapevine, I spot a sight. Leaves with rain droplets on their tip, not unlike a Christmas decoration. The little surprise cajoles a smile out of me, and the day brightens.

Bee Happy

BusyBee & Grevillea

This vividly coloured, tangled-looking spring flower (a grevillea), and the unassuming lurkings of a bee, is such a natural everyday scene, the sight of which brings  happiness. Bee happy and me happy.

A Marvellous Morning

What a fabulous surprise, spotting the first gumnut now in radiant bloom (with others about to pop their tops). How often the sheer beauty of nature is breathtaking. Such a sight stirs the senses and makes for a marvellous morning.
