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.
Like you I wish to see green through my windows too. You have a lovely greenery all round!
I’m sure the greenery lifts my spirirts! Nice of you to visit….thanks for your comments 🙂
That BBQ high up looks great 🙂
Yes it’s a great spot Elle. At the last BBQ we had a kookaburra perched on the railing hoping to get some left-overs!
Thanks for dropping by 🙂
I can see why and what you are thankful for! Lovely place to live. Green is beautiful!
Thank you, Denise, for stopping by and commenting….give me trees any day!
You have beautiful views at your home 🙂

Hi Cathie, I know I replied to your kind nomination on your blog but I want to let you know that time is a little tight at the moment. Things should improve next week so hopefully I’ll find the time to answer all those questions!! Thanks again for nominating my blog, Mary 🙂
What a lovely place to come home to.
Thank you Paul…it is restful. I just visited my son whose unit overlooks the Story Bridge and I suggested he check out your wonderful photos of Brisbane 🙂
Thank you Mary for spreading the word, I appreciate it.
You have an absolutely charming dwelling! – Kaye

You have a lovely home. I visited Brisbane many years ago and just loved it…and Australia in general.
