This week’s WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE : THANKFUL is quite a challenge because I’m so very thankful for much in my life – my family, good health, ability to travel and stop and take a photo whenever I want and, of course, the chance to write. Also I’m thankful for having a lovely spot to live.

I notice I’m very influenced by my surroundings and chose where I live because I could look out and see trees on all sides. Although my house is in a suburb of Brisbane and there are houses close by I’m fortunate to live amongst so much greenery.

My barbeque in the branches – two floors up!

Aussie trees and view to the mountains.

Even the garage has a green (if messy) outlook

That’s the edge of a lemon myrtle tree on the left – heavenly.

Reasonably clear view through the screens. It’s clearer in real life. The brain must make allowances for the presence of the screen. The camera cannot do so.
