A little more of my backyard

Hi everyone, the cold weather is now upon us with snow in the alps ,and my central heating now going night and day keeping the house nice and cosy. Today I went shopping then popped into my sisters for a cuppa and a chat after having a quiet few days.
Now on with tonights post.
To cold to swim pool Cover on.
Ducks come for another visit and wonder were the waters gone.

Oh what a mess my shade mesh was getting very tattered so i had it replaced.

One of My Ziggies comming into flower

this fuchsia got a knocked around when workmen were repairing shade mesh

and to end with the sun setting in a wintery sky

Beautiful photos, Jan!! I had quite a giggle when I saw the ducks on your pool cover...you can see they're wondering where the water is! lol We have ducks around here but you never seen them in peoples' yards or pools, only on the rivers and ponds. You still have some beautiful flowers blooming. The sunset photos are wonderful as well!! xox

The ducks look very sad, I’ll trade you my 92 degree hot and humid weather for some cold

Hi Jan ~~ Lovely photos of your back yard, the pool and the disappointed ducks, lovely zygo cactus and sunset.
I agree with Peter, the fuchsia does
not look too bad to me either.
Thanks for your comments, I think people are more aware of Bc nowadays
but it doesn't hurt to remind them.
I guess you had the blood tests OK. Do you have to wait until 14th for results? Take care, my friend, Love, Merle.

Hi! Jeanette
Thanks for visiting me. I have so many books already to read that it could be ages before I get to the new ones.
I would enjoy reading some books set in the outback. Have not done that yet. My brother lived in the outback in the early 60's before moving to Sydney. Have not seen him since.

What lovely pictures. It's so funny, lol, you are going into winter and I'm going into summer. Well, the weather up here is so funny, I could blink and the winter will be back. Take care and much blessings sent for a 'warm' week.

That sunset reallly was pretty.
Will you get much snow this winter? That's partly why we live in Southeast Texas, there won't be any snow and not much cold weather.
Have a nice day!

Love the sunset photo, Jeanette and the clouds...I like sky and clouds.

Fingers crossed with your trip to the oncologist...I hope it all goes well for you.

I've posted on the Kat' Cradle blog today if you want to take a look.

Ciao for now

Hi Jeanette. Lovely photos! It's funny how those ducks seem to linger at the pool side to look for water. Such beautiful flowers. I love watching sunsets too.
