Mixed bag of images to start 2018

This is my first iPhoneography blog post for the year. It includes all sorts of bits and pieces including: flowers, friendly snakes, clouds, a feather and my 2018 cards.

The clouds were a forerunner to a heavy rain storm a few days ago.

This hanging snake skin was not there yesterday. Was it shed last night? Owner? Probably a 1.2 m python. And what about the little green tree snake who came to check out the bell deck when I was photographing the snakeskin early this morning.

Probably because of the rain and heat we have had quite a few roses on; and other floors are also intense in colour.

The pumpkin vines have suddenly taken off and are covering the plants and hedge at the shed.

Fiona found this small (abou1.5cm long) feather on the deck off the lounge. Probably from one of the Paleheaded Rosella's who visit us - including sitting in the tapes or on the railings on the decks.

As Fiona indicated in her new year blog post we spent a morning setting up and printing our new year cards.
