My lucky day.

I took part in a giveaway on Gina Ferrari's blog 'Fan my Flame' recently and was the lucky winner of her charming collagraph print seen here.   It arrived in the post yesterday and I am delighted with it.  My photography is not good and I have deadened the colouring in this shot, and took the photo in haste anyway and the light was not good.   Excuses, excuses!

Gina had taken part in a print exchange and decided to offer one of hers for the giveaway.  All the prints are so varied in subject and technique.  If you are interested she has posted them on her blog which is always worth a visit.

It is wet and very windy this morning and I am off to do the week's shopping shortly.  The forecast is for very strong winds which may cause structural damage and bring down trees.   That's not seasonal is it?   I find it heart breaking to see a tree in full leaf which has been brought down.   Keep safe, all of you.

That's lovely! We've had storms this morning, but not TOO scary so far.

Congratulations, all the prints were lovely weren't they? Sorry to hear about the awful weather. There have been some devastating unseasonal storms in southern Queensland also, the weather has gone crazy. Keep safe
