Sepia Saturday 150; 1956 Olympic meeting;

I am somehow at a loss when it comes to team sports. Luckily one member of our family was  an enthusiastic race driver. 
Here are some of the events that took place.

Wednesday; travel to...

Flying over the Flinders Ranges;

Places  in Australia with odd names; I leave you the pleasure of looking them up on the Australian map,
enjoy a nice trip. The names are pronounced in English!



Above the Flinders Ranges;

The Bight,

Flinders Ranges a fantastic landscape.

 Darling Downs,

 Never Never,

Sounding in each mountain rill,
Echoing from hill to hill…
In the lonely, silent places
Men lift up their glad, wet faces,
And their thanks ask no explaining -
It is raining - raining - raining!

Names of  towns used in CJ Den's famous poem  "And it's raining, raining, raining."

C J Dennis, Poet; Journalist, was born in Auburn, South Australia, on 7 September 1876,  he preferred to be known as Den.

Tuesday; Nature's wonders;

Honey Bee collecting nectar and pollen; My Garden;

Lavishly golden,
 liquid sunshine held in tiny, waxen  chambers. 
 The  fragrance of  flowers and harvest, warmed by sun, wind and rain,
 nectar collected diligently, 
transmuted into  the sweetest  of sweets,
 for sticky, little fingers to lick and savour,
  this wonderful alchemy of  nature.

Monday; Aahh...

Aahh… close your eyes and dream of an island in the sun;
 idly succumb  to a delightful dream;  a closed book in your lap,
 the soft tap
 of  a slow day rolling by. Aahh…
