The theme this week at Our BeautifulWorld #69 is Rustic.

This afternoon I suggested to my husband that we go for a drive in the countryside.  I told him I was looking for an example of rustic to photograph.  He said he could show me some interesting roadside letter boxes.

This house owner has turned a bike into a letterbox.
Here are a few more examples of country ingenuity.

A couple more photos I took today.  The first photo is of an old farm house and buildings.  The second is a metal sculpture.

The old building was the last shot I took.  We had pulled over onto the side of the road and as I was taking the photos I was thinking about the warm weather and that it brings out the snakes, when I saw a movement out of the corner of my eye.  Yes a snake!  I quickly returned to the car.  Gosh my pulse was racing.  That was a little more excitement than I wanted.

Well I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.  Take care and thank you for visiting.

I have been absent this past month due to a family bereavement. 

Joining the fun at Our Beautiful World this week (#68) is a way of easing back into blogging.  Ros is the host this week and her prompt is Autumn.

This photo was taken back in May.   It was a miserable cold grey day, I was at work and walking between buildings, and there were piles of leaves everywhere.  It took a lot of restraint not to drag my feet through them or kick them in the air.

It is Spring in Australia now so I am including a few photos I have taken recently.
Blossom on one of our pear trees
 Apple blossom
 A neighbour's tree
 Finally this magnificent magnolia tree I saw in Ballarat.  It's the biggest magnolia I have ever seen.

Thank you for visiting and have a great week.
