Success is often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable.
In the garden
So I guess he swallowed it.
Wouldn't this be a great way to be? Not to think you can fail.I rarely move out of my comfort zone. I'm not quite sure whether it is fear of failure or dislike of change. I met P:-) on the internet and that was definitely stepping out of my comfort zone. Failure wasn't on the agenda then. Just giving it a go meant I'd taken a step forward in my life and that was success in itself. It was certainly an adventure. Meeting P:-) was an added bonus - although I think it was meant to be.
In the garden
Today I was weeding my garden. (I am trying to pull out 20 weeds each day.) I came across this tiny, very green grasshopper.
Insect pictures are very hard to get. Insects often don't stay still. One minute they are under your lens and then before you snap they are gone. I have great admiration for photographers who photograph insects ( - and dogs! My daughter's dog Jasper won't sit still either.)
I am surprised that my camera would take a reasonably clear photo this close up. I did put it on macro but the grasshopper was only about 5mm long.
I came inside and there was a kookaburra sitting outside the window near my computer.
On closer inspection he appeared to have something in his mouth.
He seems to have caught something to eat and in the next moment it is gone.
A lovely surprise
P:-) turned up last night with a wonderful surprise. It was a new TV for my dining room /kitchen.
It is lovely. My old TV was struggling and kept turning black and white. Now we have a beautiful reception as well as all of the digital channels. P:-) likes to sit in the dining room because the chairs are good for his back, so we spend a lot of time in there, rather than in the lounge room.
P:-) is a lovely man.
