Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Spring – Wood

Spring – Wood

It is autumn here in Australia so you would not think there would be any spring like pictures to take but tell that to my daffodils. The silly things have started coming up already. I have ordered new bulbs to plant for spring and they are not even here yet! At the rate they are going I could have daffodils for my birthday next month.

There is never any shortage of wood around here though. My pergola is made of new timber.  My shed is quite old and may once have been an apple pickers hut. A lot of local people bought them for sheds when the  old orchards closed. Then there is the firewood stacked in the shed. I don’t use my wood fire any more but I keep some firewood just in case there is a power cut.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.
