The Great Outdoors

Tamborine Mountain, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

This was what greeted me every morning I was in Australia for a 10-day seminar. The sky was blue despite it being winter then. It was a welcome respite to the concrete jungle I'm accustomed to. Wish I have something like this in my backyard.

It is a lovey bucolic scene. I have horses in my backyard. Nice to wake up to. MB

The photograph is stunning. I think everyone wants Nature in all its beauty but far too many don't want to deal with raccoons, bugs, and things not found in the urban environment. I would live there in a heartbeat but I'd insist on a small country-style grocery store within walking distance.

Alicesg, you too.

Small city scenes, lucky you!

Abraham Lincoln, there was but one grocery store within walking distance. As my trip was during the height of theLondon scare, many of the delegates, including myself, did not bring toothpaste. I was able to buy the last one from the store. The delegates who came after me had to ask for toothpaste from their roommates.

Em: The June full moon is called Strawberry moon because June here is traditionally strawberry month. It is called Illusion moon because it looks way larger than it is. MB

Thanks for visiting my blog.

The blue sky is beautiful and I love the horses in the foreground. My contribution is a solar halo. I invite you to come see. -- Margy
