A day to play


Well happy belated Easter and Passover wishes my friends..we had the kids and their partners up for Easter and then i got the post flu shot lurgy…bliss..

I spent some time with two of my boys taking pics of their tattoos..i forgot to get Michaels which i will have to do another time.
A funny thing to do i suppose but they are so proud of them and as they are on my boys then i take an interest too.
I also spent some time playing with some pics of flowers from my garden ..i was in a funny mood and i think maybe wanted to just do something different for a change..
Maybe i am sick of the dullness of a dry Summer that is stretching into Autumn..a seemingly endless stream of brown and grey..we have watched the clouds go around us..heard the news of rain and it has missed us completely….well i lie..we actually had three drops today.

The nights have been cool which is a blessing but the days are still warm and dry..and today alone there were three dead roos by the highway as the poor things come for the grasses by the roadside..

So with my landscape being so mundane i think i went in search of colour ..i did include a picture of a lovely piece of architecture on the St Mary’s church in town..i found the shape lent itself to a little sprucing up and is my little contribution to the Easter season ..

I hope you do not mind my little detour from the normal wildlife…

Hugs Fozziemum xx

  4. Such colour FM! You made up for the dullness around you. The boys tattoos are so very colourful. Now dad has a tattoo too but there is no colour in his. Is this because it all wore off? Will this happen with the boys too? Glad you enjoyed Easter as well as us. Today is leftover and relaxing day. Nobody is coming over so we can mellow out and so what if toys are all over the floor!

  8. Crikey …….. those tatts are colourful!!!!!!!!!!! Are you REALLY going to get one?????????????????? It HURTS!!!!!!!!!! My Mum’s soooooooooooo conservative she hasn’t even got her ears pierced. She’s also a wuss!!!!! My 2 legged sis got a tattoo when she turned 18. It’s a flower …… very pretty. It’s tiny. It’s on her foot. Mum freaked but coped. THEN she got an eyebrow ring!! Mum FREAKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She didn’t cope. Jen was at Uni. She came home for a visit. She told Mum before she came cause she knew she wouldn’t be happy. Mum decided she would just be cool and accept it and not say anything. She picked Jen up. She couldn’t even look at her. BUT she was cool and tried very hard to accept it. BUT …… she couldn’t look at her. The next time Jen came home for a visit there was NO eyebrow ring and the hole had almost closed up. Too funny. Mum reckons tatts are alright as long as they’re not on her or her kids. Heaven help her in a few years when the Grandkids get bigger. Those photos of the flowers and leaves are really BEAUTIFUL!!
    Crikey I hope you get some rain soon, aye?????

    • Hahaah well i have a tattoo already and yep was like carpet burn πŸ™‚ i must admit i was a little funny about the kids but they do look quite beautiful and there is not much i can do about it haaha..although when Rhiannon got her lip pierced i was beside myself..of course she grew out of it and no harm done..i had my nose pierced but it closed over..i used to wear a pretty little diamond stud..itty bitty…and the boys got eyebrow rings..ewww they do not wear them anymore..Brad does have one of those huge earring things which does my head in…but at the end of the day they are gentle loving kids with hearts of gold so what can i say πŸ™‚ and yes we need rain i am watching it everywhere but here…the dams are stupidly low…thankyou for the compliment on the flowers Charlie πŸ™‚ and the leaves..i did have fun playing with them πŸ™‚ loves Fozziemum xxxx

  9. Beautiful photos, all of them, I’m glad you did something different. The tattoos are great, I’m a sucker for tattoos and think the family one is great that you all have them, can’t wait to see what you plan on doing. I take pictures of mine too. I have Norman and Nellie’s heads on my leg, and all my animals paw prints, plus my family death tattoo, remembering my mom and dad.

  11. Your pictures are aroooootiful Auntie Bev, especially the roses. Mom has three tattoos…can you believe it?

She got her other two earlier this year, these she can’t hide from Grandpa & surprisingly enough he kinda approved when he saw them *SHOCKER*!

  12. Sounds like a wonderful week end there and those are some beautiful tats-very classy. More of a work of art on the skin than a tat. Love those fuzzy bumbler photos. Bumble bees are here already and it is to cold at night for them so I hope they remain til the warmer weather will be here 24/7.

  13. Oh Bev such colorful photos!!! Tattoos fascinate me although I wouldn’t get one myself – I think they are amazing artwork on the body and can range from truly hideous to amazingly gorgeous……I got used to seeing them back in the 60s when I used to know a lot of bikers (tee hee). Anyway, your family has some beautiful body art indeed certainly worth showing off! The flowers are amazing as is the closeup of the bees……..you really have SUCH TALENT – I agree with everyone who has encouraged you to do a coffee table book. You know – “Color in the Outback” or something to show the amazing diversity of critter/landscape/life that’s around you.

    Hope you’re feeling MUCH better!!!!

      • You certainly opened my eyes to the beauty of Australia…..I think a lot of people just think “kangaroos and miles of nothing” when they think of Australia which is SUCH A SHAME really. When you’re ready to publish something, you’ll find that if you do it yourself, it’s really super easy…..finding a traditional publisher is often difficult but with your spectacular photos – maybe not!

    Ooooh, I love those colours! Stunning tattoos for sure! My eldest son is forever moisturizing his so the colours won’t fade. πŸ˜€

    Christopher’s tattoo is just as gorgeous! πŸ˜€

  15. I love the tattoos! My daughter and I went together to get one about three years ago. I am going to get another one in honor of Bentley, but I am still deciding on the perfect design. My husband is the only one without a tattoo, as my son’s leg looks like your son’s arm. ☺
