Blood Plums

This is the last of the plums. We've had good crops of cherry plums, green-gold greengages, and blood plums this summer. Blood plums, the last to ripen, are my favourite of all plums.

Mr Pip looked so hopeful

I shared it with him

Lake walk late evening

Despite the dog's best efforts

This evening we got to the lake a little later than usual. 
It feels as if the summer is finally cooling down a little, gentler and autumnal.

Birthday Banquet & phone

I have started to use a mobile phone. For the first time. With trepidation. But I need to be able to ring people and services - and to be rung in turn - if I make a long trip.
Today I finally worked out how to download pictures from the mobile phone. Early this month Yin and I went to Kambei restaurant and celebrated his birthday with a (modest) banquet.

Cool Summer 2017

I've had a long break of two years during which I've been sick and got better, worked on and off on a thesis and stopped taking photos.

I've tried Facebook but it isn't as much a pleasure as blogging.

There's a rosella outside my window and blood plums ripening on the plum tree. I feel like celebrating living in Ballarat again.

Here's town and city in the eighteen seventies with the Yarrowee River in between.
