Macro Friday - New Tomatoes

These are the first of my new season tomato crop. I can't wait until they're lovely and red and I can eat them straight from the vine. Yum! Happy Macro Friday everyone.

My Garden

Behold my new "pot" garden. I'm pretty excited as my mint has come back wonderfully and I've just put in basil and coriander. I haven't had much luck with them in the past but I'm willing to give it another go. Also in my garden are tomatoes, silver beet, rosemary, parsley and I'm attempting to grow some plum trees from some seedlings we rescued from a plum tree that was cut down. I hope my efforts will pay off - I'll keep you updated.

Street Art Wednesday

I love the colours in this photo - so bright and bold. It's a shame people have tagged on the wall but I really like this ladies' head just poking out from the blue.

Portraits

On Sunday I took photos of my cousin's kids. It was so much fun. I've been thinking that portraiture photography might be something I'd like to do and although Sunday was challenging at times it went really well and I'm happy with the results. My cousin found this little bike in the hard rubbish on the side of the road. I love it.

Melbourne Cup Day

Today is Melbourne Cup Day - a horse race that as the spiel goes "stops a nation". We do get a day off for it, so I don't have any complaints. I watched the race in Federation Square which was fun, although wet at times. I also backed both the first and second placed horses (Americain and Maluckyday) so I won some money on it as well. A good day all round really.
