On that pleasant spring morning,
when the birds are out and performing
and the sun's rays are warming
On that sultry summer night
after the thunderstorm yielded its might
and the moon is revealing a little light
On that crisp autumn day
when you have time to whittle away
and the leaves are an intense color buffet
On that raw winter twilight
when the sun is inching out of sight
and you're ready to call it a night
by Charles Hancock
A chance stop at Turramurra on our way home, and we discovered this flower tribute on the side of the road ... someone had created a flower memorial for Anzac Day... so beautiful...
And let it begin with me.

Hi family, Maggie here...
Well I've been having fun and going for lots of walks. I've helped Kev read the paper, and I showed Kaz the funny yellow box in the yard. She asked me what it was for, but I didn't know.
I showed Kev how to chase a ball and bring it back to me, and I've met a new friend called Candy. We've had a few plays together, and I like to have a little bit of her dinner when she's had enough to eat.
I learned a new doggie joke - What do you get when you cross a cocker spaniel, a poodle, and a rooster? A cockerpoodledoo!
Kaz groaned when I told her that one! Well that's all for me for now, we're all sitting watching tele together. I hope you're having fun bring me back a treat! Love and kisses Maggie.
(and what a cute little grey chinny chin chin she has)
The weather is so lovely - warm autumn days to bask in the sun and watch the kyaks drift by.
We were fascinated with the dog sculpture outside About Life Market Place, so we tracked down the creators... the sculpture is by Gillie and Marc Shattner which led to an interesting article about their street art dogs - from Gillie and Marc's blog... “WE ARE HUGE SUPPORTERS OF BRINGING ART ON THE STREETS AND MAKING IT REALLY ACCESSIBLE.” All but three out of the 100 fibreglass dog sculptures planted around the greater Sydney region have been stolen in recent months, revealing that people will go to any length to secure themselves a quirky piece of contemporary art. The sculptures were part of an unusual social experiment conducted by contemporary artists Gillie and Marc Schattner to determine who would steal public art. "Marc and I are huge supporters of bringing art on the streets and making it really accessible," Gillie said. "Honest to god, we never expected the works to go that fast."
