Linking up with Kate
for the July word hunt.
This month seemed difficult, but once I set my mind to it, I found way too many for some words.
Here we go......
Cranes in the port of Harwich. This is one word I found quite a few pics for, but went for this one hoping it would be a little different.
When we lived on the other side of town at No. 4, the grandchildren used to call these daffodils around the silver birches "THE FAIRY RING"
This word has so many meanings, it is not 'funny'. In the end, I went to the dictionary for ideas and found that as a verb, it has 18 meanings, as an adjective, 5, and as a noun, 11. Some of these, even have a few connotations of their own too.
This is the noun, (8), --a session of jazz or rock music, usually followed by intermission, or the music played during such a session.
So these little fellas are at the Goulburn Caravan Park (NSW) where we've stayed a few times over the years and I'm quite sure they'd be playing a Jazz SET.
The Illiminations in Blackpool (UK) where we went one year with our niece and her family. I was very taken with the trouble they go to, to put this on each year and thought it quite amazing. I did love this photo I took (it was hard to take good pics), with crown and chandeliers.
The bow of a huge ship with helicopter pad looming out of the mist in Blyth (UK again). This is a cable laying ship which was docked and I expect picking up cable from the area, as we also saw a large yard where I think, they must make it. It was huge.
I remember seeing a cable laying ship in Sydney as a child, which we were lucky enough to be shown around as my Dad used to work for OTC, an Australian communications company.
Springer and his mate. Hubby made these 2 doggies many years ago from the springs he replaced in one of our cars. The one of the left is DD's and the one on the right belongs to us. Think I have posted these before, but just the thing for this word.
An "open"-cut coal mine in the Latrobe Valley here in Victoria east of where we live. I'm not a big fan of coal-fired power stations, but this is the world we live in and as long as we try and better our use of resources, it stays for the time being.
Our first "grand" child aged about 18 months (I think) sporting the latest fashion, a tupperware bowl hat.😊 This little girl, is now a young lady who will be 21 in November. Yikes!!!!!!
OK, probably not the most obscure use for this word, but this is the oddest colour for a lyrebird, a rather shy native bird which is often seen flashing through trees in southern rain forest areas.
It stands at the entrance to a fun park just west of here on the highway to Melbourne. Many years ago, someone put some firecrackers up it's rear end and it looked quite sad until they resurrected it. Now the park is undergoing a, wait for it...... $50 million dollar refurbishment. We've never been, so may make that an outing once it is completed. More photos opportunities?
I just grabbed this photo of a lyrebird off the internet so everyone can see what they really look like. I've never been quick enough to get a proper photo, so hope I'm not doing anything too naughty.
10. MY OWN CHOICE.
Hellebores in flower along the back fence. Hubby took this photo yesterday while I was at the Quilt Show. Aren't they 'gorgeous'. I'll try and do a post soon as the garden comes back to life, though a few things have succumbed to the heavy frosts. I saw a quick news item, that Australia is having it's coldest and driest winter for a long time. Even though dry, it's been very overcast.
OK my hunt done and not as early as I'd planned. Can I actually say this, but I was
, OK pooped last night and even dozed off a few times in the front of TV after my day out. I never do that.
Have a great weekend all and I'm off to link this up.
Take care and huggles, Susan.
