Thank you Anna. =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

This is the Japanese garden which lies between ward eleven on the right where I was last week after my stroke.
I sneaked outside at dusk when my nurse was not looking. And it was just starting to rain when I took the photo.
The curves as required can be seen in the footpath.

The Canola shot makes me homesick :cry:
I thought they would have stripped that by now.

We grow a lot "Canola" over here blue, but we call it "Rape Seed"
and in the Summer lots of our fields look like that

Very nice colourful photo, has a feel good factor about it,
brightens up our cold miserable day over here.

Many years ago it was called 'Rape" here as well.
I don't know why they suddenly started calling it Canola.
Either way....it still make me homesick for the country life again.
That scenery brings back many fond memories.

Good photos.
I was impressed by yours, global. It was a lovely shot. I liked it as soon as I saw it.

Excellent shots, blue. Where was the one of the canola field taken?

Thanks Sherri. it was hard sneaking out there at night in the rain in my hospital nightie to take that photo.

Yes nightie they had no pyjamas that would fit around my stomach so I wore a nightie it had no lace nor was it a see through negligee type.
It was gender neutral and other male patients wore them as well.

The canola fields picture was taken some weeks back.. it was taken on the road between Warrnambool and Geelong.. it was on the day that my daughters fiancés heart stopped for approximately 30 minutes.. they say that you could count the amount of people in Australia being brought back after that amount of time on one hand… as sam was being taken to Geelong on board a recovery plane me and the mrs traveled by car… silently.. no talking, no radio, just our minds full of thought and worry and just trying to keep things together inside… then this canola field opened up beside us as we travelled along and it was so vibrant and full of life.. I guess it struck me that while we were struggling with death, recovery and still uncertainty, that this field, smacked me fair in the face with life…
