About 4:15 pm
coming back from our walk
I looked up at the blue sky with some dainty wisps of white clouds.
What a wonderful sight!
Up high a small piece of rainbow!
NATURE IS WONDERFUL
In the front is the roof of my place.
Two Saturdays ago a friend and I went for a walk.
Suddenly between the house we saw this bright rainbow.

FUN TIME FOR TROMPIE AND MOLLY
Yesterday was the third time Trompie had the opportunity to visit his little niece, Molly.
They had a ball playing with a white fluffy toy.
Pulling, running, shaking and debating
who is going to run away with it!
I’m going to take it.
Give it back
Chew and pull
Give it up!
Wew, shake it baby!
Today May 14, 2013 was a very exhausting day. I had to judge card making and scrap-book pages for the Women’s Institute .
My friend, who is a scrap-book consultant and tutor asked me to help her judge some of the entries. As far as I knew I only was supposed to judge the cards. Arriving at the venue I was in for a surprise. My friend had arranged (without telling me) that I would also judge the single scrap-book pages. After a bit of an argument with her I did the judging the best I could do.
There were 42 single pages. Each one had its own good points and some also were not really up to standard.
Table full of scrap-book pages to be judged.
Here is a photo of the best card.
The runner-up was also beautiful
There were only 10 cards , all were of a high standard.
Some interesting sights from the window on the 12th floor were we did the judging.
Wellington, New Zealand
Wonder why this was outside?

||Maidenhair tree (living fossil).
||Ginkgoaceae belong to the class of the Ginkgophytes. This class constituted the link between the ferns and the angiosperms (flowering plants).
||The Ginkgo biloba is the world’s oldest living tree, a species whose existence can be traced back-over 250 million years! For this reason, the Ginkgo was referred to as living fossil (1859) by Charles Darwin. Ginkgo trees were common and widespread in Asia, Europe and America but disappeared from America about 7 million years ago, and from Europe about 3 million years ago.
||Deciduous conifer. A Ginkgo biloba tree can reach 30 or 40 m height and a spread of 8 meters. The trunk can become about 3 or 4 meters wide in diameter. It is straight columnar and sparingly branched. Young trees have usually a central trunk, pyramidal in shape, with regular, lateral, ascending, asymmetrical branching. The bark is brown and rough. It fissures rough furrows with the age. The leaves of this tree are interesting and unique from any other tree. They are fan-shaped, leathery and smooth. They are often deeply grooved in the middle of the leaf, producing two distinct lobes, hence the name Ginkgo biloba (two lobes). The leaves have a venation pattern that is open dichotomous; the veins fork in pairs from the base of the leaf, and are not cross-connected. They are bright green during the summer, turning gold before dropping in the fall.http://www.dermnetnz.org/dermatitis/plants/ginkgo.html
I took these photos late afternoon.

A bit late but I had to do it. Yesterday afternoon my friend and I had a stroll in a nearby park. There is a new development going on there! A very interesting one.
