Backyard Travels

Backyard Adventures

No one to talk to. Nothing to do.
A trip to the kitchen. A jaunt to the loo.

Nowhere to go to. Forbidden to roam.
If I want to travel, I’ll do it at home.

Down in my garden, the flowers and bees
pose for my photos whenever I please.

I record the sights just to prove I have traveled,
clicking the sights as my journey unraveled

    I took the car and the camera to the harbor this afternoon — too many people to get out of the car, but I did see the birds (will post tomorrow), and it was good to get out in the fresh air between rain storms! We’re likely to have more rain through at least Wednesday! There’s a strange hush in the air — similar to that before an earthquake or before a thunderstorm — that adds to the eerie fel of a city with no people. I hope this phase finishes soon!

      Finally, this late afternoon/early evening I heard music down below in the village and heard a mass being broadcast over a speaker.. must have done this instead of having people enter the church. Then the wind came up and my Soleri bell strung up in the pistachio tree beside the hammock started ringing..Other than that it has been so quiet for two days.

      I may take the car down to San Juan to photograph egrets in the huge tree. Tried to do it with my cell phone but it only really works for closer subjects. Just 10X telephoto. My camera has 100X! Will take it next time.

        Sorry — I got distracted by proving the travels around your beautiful yard! I love the hibiscus and the bougainvillea, but all these shots are wonderful, and I really enjoy seeing your travels around the yard — thanks for taking us along!

    That is a wonderful antique Ganeesha. I have one on my mantel, but it isn’t an antique. Well, it’s getting there. i bought it more than 20 years ago from the man who actually made it. I love Ganeesha and He loves writers.
