Nature Is Pretty In Bright Pink. 52.1/2021.

Nature Is Pretty In Bright Pink. 52.1/2021.

Now I am back! Again. Loving BRIGHT as a Squares Challenge!

Becky encouraged me to do this too, after I saw the challenge elsewhere  and it didn’t have to be every day…so here I am.

Being Square is Fun!

Join in this lovely challenge and post a photographic square daily for one month every quarter. The theme changes every quarter and is announced on this blog a few weeks, occasionally days, in advance of the challenge month. The challenge months are January, April, July and October.

I am going to admit something here. I love using my Iphone ProMax and its camera gives me soooo many great shots, that I have started finding nurseries to visit just to photograph flowers. Oh, and I did buy a few of these pretty in bright pinks for adding to a place outside to brighten our mornings.

I also stopped the car in a street with many beautiful camellias this week as I was visiting my Dad.

So, Bright is it. Pretty in BRIGHT Pink.

Thank you Becky for this challenge which I found got me right in. I will be back in July to see what you have in store. Oh, and I also learned how easy it was to add my name and copyright.

Cheers from Australia.

After Head & Neck Cancer…. Bright Smiles. 46/2021.

After Head & Neck Cancer…. Bright Smiles. 46/2021.

Recently I joined in the Be Square challenge over at Becky’s blog – see below, with this post. It  was BRIGHT and it certainly won some attention!

Becky’s square theme for April is Bright – it’s a challenge where she posts a photo every day. She invites others to join her in sharing their square photos, either every day or as they feel the urge: Debbie from DebsWorld.

Becky also  encouraged me to do this too, and it didn’t have to be every day…so here I am.

Taking a Look at Bright Smiles.

Those who have followed me for the past few years, know I was diagnosed with a rare cancer in my gums. Full posts are here.

One thing I missed the most for fourteen months from the removal of cancer and through the reconstruction surgeries was my ability to

I got mine back and to be honest, it’s probably the best smile in my whole 70+ years. But wait, there is more to the story.

My smile was created from parts of my leg. The fibula was harvested for the new jaw to hold the abutments which would eventually hold an upper prosthesis of teeth…..the skin, and muscle and blood vessels from part of my leg were sacrificed for the best reason. They make up my upper palate. However, I still needed some more skin from my thigh to help flesh out the top lip where some cancer had also been removed.

And though this head and neck cancer journey of mine I was alone. I mean that I could find no-one else in Australia or beyond who shared my experience of July 2017 onwards and so I became resigned to that, until one day in 2019 I got a message.

From another woman, who had undergone a similar procedure in the same hospital and with the same fantastic surgical and prosthodontic teams, and she too is a teacher and it turned out we knew of people in education…and so much more.

This is Tara and last year she shared her story as a Woman of Courage here.

We chatted on line, followed each other on social media, swapped stories with our team too.

Then last week, we MET, face to face for the best connection and what did we do most of that time, when not talking….

we S M I L E D.

Here we are

And a square collage of us, with photos from where we were treated and one with our head and neck surgeon.

Thank you so much to Tara for our get together which I am pretty sure won’t be our last.

Thanks always to our team who made sure we got our smiles back!

Bright Sight! Lorikeets On The Grass. 42.1/2021.

My blogging friend Debbie from here   is quite an influencer…of me!

She recently joined up with Becky’s Squares, link below, and I admit I too am a FAN of bright colours and wondered, will I join in?

Last Sunday This Was My Bright Sight!

On Sunday afternoons I often go for a gentle stroll on a cycle/walking path near the local lake. I take my iphone of course. Photo opportunities just pop up for me. Instead of peace on this part of the walk, all I heard was screeching of birds. In Australia, we have  these amazing, noisy and oh so colourful birds called  lorikeets, and the message was out: “good feed here”. I just stayed and clicked away and what a reward of BRIGHT SIGHT I had!

 

Nature makes the best colours!
