Metal flowers, a steal at $110 each. Just the thing for your favourite robot.
This morning I was heading out early to go to the Doll Show on the bus. It has been cold and it snowed overnight although it quickly started to melt once the sun came up. This was the scene at Vince’s Saddle, the highest point on the Huon Highway at around 8:15 am this morning.
Winter is nearly here, my Gleditsia tree is bare, the maples have leaves but they are all dead, the apple tree has just a few green and yellow leaves left on it.
But there are still some roses. Here’s one from this morning.
Yesterday was our federal election and I spent the day working at the Op Shop. The school was a polling place and the parents’ group ran a sausage sizzle as a fundraiser. Here is my sausage, with onion but no sauce.
The day was very pleasant, the shop did well, the sausages all sold out and there was a nice community atmosphere.
Unfortunately, the day went downhill once the polls closed and the Liberal government was returned for another three years. There is a lot more I’d like to say about that but I should probably wait till I’m less angry; maybe in about three years.
This is the last photo I took during a mini photo shoot in the garden yesterday. In between shots I’d had a game of ball with Cindy. She loves to play fetch but these days she can sometimes take a while to decide to drop the ball so there is not so much chasing and more dodging me until she is ready to give it up. Still, she is thirteen so I am glad she wants to play ball at all.
I spotted this old car on a property not far from my house. Naomi says that it is an Austin A40 from around 1951.
