....Hubby ...

....... my Hubby does some great thing at times......
Today, it was still raining and the morning paper was soaked. He brought it in and got the hair dryer and dried (and read) it page by page so it would be  fine for Mum to read later in the morning......

..I love this pic ..... xx

and.......

..because I'm trying to learn more about macro photography, he got diy directions off the Internet and made me a light box.....

...it folds away for storage and is lightweight and easy to handle..... it's complete with clip on lamps......   I love it..... 

...this is a mealey bug on the underside of a fern leaf... it is the first (bad) photo I took this in the light box..
I still have a lot to learn about photography and Macro in particular... but I'm having fun...
Thanks Hubby  XXX


Hugs and Blessings..

Look what I found......

I was looking around in the garden for something interesting and  'arty'  to photograph... and I found this on our plum tree .............

...... it looked soft and a bit mushroomy.......but it was hard and firmly attached to the tree..
I thought this fitted the " interesting and arty" criteria quite well...

I did some checking on google and it seems to be a Bracket Fungus....... it could damage the tree but we only rarely get any plums ..so Hubby isn't worried about it.........

....Just a quick Hello....

...Hello....

Thank you all for your caring thoughts for the healing of Mum's wrist......
She had the plaster taken off a few days back and the specialist says she has healed beautifully..

......here she is getting th plaster cut off........she does have to wear a light support bandage until the wrist strengthens up again......... but, hey , that's pretty good... I think....

...She asked to be taken to the club straight from the specialist's rooms....she wanted a coffee and a play on the poker machines......you can't keep a good woman down..... hehehe..... this was the first time she was able to use both hands for over 6 weeks....... she enjoyed it.

....A couple of my latest photos.....
....Flower and Buds on my Zygote Cactus... I love the soft pink of the blooms...........the cyclamen that I had in the kitchen had finished flowering, so I brought the cactus in yesterday so Mum could enjoy seeing  it every day...... she loves it...
