My third post to beckyofwinchester.com October Squares challenge.
While mindfully and mindlessly wandering around the garden centre this morning I came across these two kindred spirits sitting off in a corner reading .
My second post to beckyofwinchester.com October Squares challenge.
On Tuesday afternoon I finished my second last round of treatment for the follicular lymphoma a chronic blood condition that was diagnosed earlier this wonderful year. The post-treatment brain fog and listlessness usually only lasts for a few days but this time it hung around into the weekend, the energy that I had experienced last week was long gone.
On Saturday morning, I decided to take a bush walk down to the river on the farm’s western boundary. I often find that I can push myself through these bouts of listlessness and feel energised just to be outdoors.
The walk down was beautiful, lots of birds and wildflowers out after the rain and too early in the day for snakes. Sometimes we have to be cruel to be kind to our bodies and give ourselves a push out the door.
Now back from my Thursday excursion to gardens at Foxglove & Co in Central Tilba. I decided to wait and have lunch at home instead of at La Gallette the cute little french cafe up the road. Solo diners are not really encouraged at the moment, why seat 1 when you can seat 6. I will have to arrange another visit with some pals the food looked decedantly delicious.
Connecting with the natural world, helps me through difficult times.
I have had a Canon Macro 100mm 1:28 lens in the cupboard for several years and hardly used it. Previous attempts to master it were disappointing. So the challenge for the coming weeks is to improve my photography using this lens. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Empty nest syndrome
Parental responsibility is only a temporary stage for our resident Willie wagtail pair, they spend days crafting a beautiful nest. They then produce an even more beautiful egg. This is the second year that they have abandoned this nest.
Fortunately, last spring they successfully fledged a chick in their other nest in the nearby lemon tree.
