A New Day, A New Year.

Hello and a belated Happy New Year – the start of the new decade.  The image I am sharing  today is of a Cornflower in the garden at sunrise yesterday.  The flowers are very late in flowering due to my tardiness in sowing the seeds and the odd growing season that we have had starting with a cold spring and now the blistering heat.  Whilst both the heat and wind have been horrid here, my thoughts go to those far less fortunate in Australia at the start of this dreadful fire season and to the crews, volunteers and others who are working tirelessly in the communities.  Stay safe and well 🙂

  1. Lisa, my friend, a very good New Year and 2020 generally to you too, its very good to hear from you. I’m ok, heading towards 70, which is somewhat sobering >>> so time to drink some more good Belgian beer!!!! Love this image of your’s; wonderful subject matter, composition and lighting. Adrian 🙂

  2. Exquisite Lisa….certainly a ray of hope in the blistering heat and tragic conditions consuming your end of Australia.

  3. Nothing is as it used to be…only the struggle to resist inevitable change in seasons. Keep reminding us of nature’s beauty despite its ugliness, turn our faces from the blackened charcoal back to the purity of a new born flower. The world needs your healing lens.
    Thank you.

  4. So glad to see a post from you, Lisa. I hope you had an enjoyable Christmas and yes, the heat is exhausting so we can only imagine what our hard-working Firefighters are facing.

    Lovely image of the Cornflower and so good to see one with the heat and strong gusty winds we’ve been having. I think many gardeners are struggling to keep their flower gardens alive this Summer.

  5. Such a lovely image Lisa … I too am pleased to see a post from you. The fires are just heartbreaking …these people that are fighting them are hero’s. So many amazing people doing so many wonderful things to help. Stay safe

  6. A lovely photo. I hope you’re a good start to the yea, health wise and with the weather. After the bushfires and drought, we’ve been having cyclonic winds and rains in Sydney. “My Country” by Dorothea Mackeller describes this summer so well.
