Good Morning, all Bloggers!

8 Jan


This picture I took more than a week ago one early morning in Essendon. I love the early mornings. Especially in summer.


Peter took this picture and the following ones. He was waiting for Martin and me in Queen Park, Moonee Ponds, while Martin and I had a dip in the near by open air pool. Caroline and Matthew had gone to the city by train to meet some Melbournian friends for lunch.

    The last picture shows an “Illawarra Flame Tree” which seemed to blossom a bit later in Melbourne. It is the symbol of our home region, the Illawarra.

      Oh hi, Peter. So nice to hear from you beyond Aunty Uta’s posts. I was just going to comment that I loved that tree. Good to know what it is. I also think it’s cool that our seasons are opposite. We are in the deep freeze here in America, with negative 20 degrees Fahrenheit counting wind chill. It’s nice to vicariously enjoy the warmth from afar.

      I checked it out, Beth, and your photos are really good. My husband Peter took most of the photos in this post. I took only the photo of the lemons.

        We use a digital camera, Beth. This works best for us. No mucking around with the settings.

      Hallo, liebe Gislinde, wir waren ja zum Ende des Jahres für ein paar Tage in Melbourne. Die Bilder sind noch von unserem Melbourne Besuch. Ja, bei uns ist es zur Zeit schön warm, zum Glück noch nicht zu warm. Ich hoffe, du musst nicht allzu lange im Krankenhaus bleiben. Ich wünsche dir ein gutes Wochenende und viel Gesundheit! Herzlichst, Uta 🙂

    Great photos. Glad you enjoyed your time in Melbourne. We are back from our trip to the North where it was hot and humid. Still, the evenings were lovely with many musicians playing on the streets.

      Sounds like you had a good time, Gerard. We had some nice evenings too in Melbourne. New Year’s Eve we spent in Tathra near Bega with family and friends.

    Your pics always capture the beauty of the surroundings you are in Uta.
    Your pic of the Illawarra tree is a perfect example, Melbourne at its finest.

      Hi Ian, Peter actually took all the Queen Park pictures. Yes, I do like them and Peter does not mind me using them for my blog.
      Uta 🙂

    Enjoyed your pictures. I still hope to visit Australia, While our last planned visit did not work out … one of these days, we will make it.

    • auntyuta February 3, 2015 at 12:21 pm #

      Thanks very much for your visit, Lew. Australia is still a good place. Politically we are in a bit of a crisis right now. But in Australia we tend to say: “She’ll be right, mate.” 🙂
