A Different Type of March

While I had a day off, I thought I would be taking photos, and yet Mother Nature had other plans.

It’s just a little wet. (View from our master bedroom)

Mother Nature’s plans were most welcome though, and I know the garden is loving all the water it is finally receiving thanks to a rain depression – the remnants of Tropical Cyclone Trevor that has travelled south-east from the top of our country, filling rivers and flooding plains.ย  We’ve not been flooded, but have received a substantial amount of rainfall over the last 48 – 72 hours.

But this is only one thing that interrupted my plans for March as work and other aspects of life have kept me busy and even though I have been hard-pressed to find time to write on my blog, I’ve not been so time-poor that I’ve not taken a few photos.

As most of you already know, I love taking photos of the flowers I grow in my garden, and I did manage to photograph this one for Cee’s Flower of the Day photo challenge.

My emerging Black Bat Flower

I also photographed this one thinking it fit the mould as a pointy thing for Becky’s ‘Spiky’ Squares in March photo challenge.

A newly opened Anthurium – that pointy tip on the left that fits the challenge ๐Ÿ™‚ (Right?)

There have also been other things I’ve photographed.ย  For example, I also took some photos of the Super Moon last Thursday night.

Super Moon, March 21, 2019

Ok, so I took that photo at 3:37 am on Friday morning because cloud cover had obscured my view earlier and my inner clock woke me up so I could step outside and gaze skyward.

Iย love those quiet times when its just me and The Moon.ย  Here’s another shot.

Doesn’t it look amazing?

So you see, I have been playing with my camera, snapping photos on my phone, and mentally planning on sharing them and writing something – anything – to go with them.ย  Yes, my blogging intentions have been very good indeed and sadly, all they have been lately are intentions.

But this time of the year can be crazy and my other pastime – Toastmasters – has been keeping me busy – very busy indeed and there are no prizes for guessing what I’m off to do right now.

  1. I found a Taca Chantiari flower that was also called a black bat flower, but yours is much more interesting looking than any of their flowers. Is that what yours is? Is it a type of orchid? Intriguing.

      1. Each flower is the same, yet vastly different. I’m looking forward to some more blooms soon as their flowering season commences in December.


I'd love to hear your thoughts . . .
