Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Orange and Light Green

Mostly Nature

I thought I’d share a few more tulip pictures from last week. Dordogne and Ad Rem are two orange toned tulip varieties. I especially like Dordogne and will order some of these for next year.

One of my favourite autumn foliage photos from the Huon Valley. This lovely tree is in Franklin and I always looked forward to seeing it.

This tree was showing wonderful autumn colours.

These vintage plates belonged to my grandmother and then mum and now they are mine.

A pair of hand painted plates made in Japan.

A scene from the Ice Show on Explorer of the Seas back in 2016.

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. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
