27 July to 8 August 2020 - Catching up on my Covid Photo A Day Project

Hi everyone, I hope you and yours are going ok. It's already a week into August! Can you believe it! Here I am again catching up again with my Covid Photo-A-Day project. Honestly I didn't expect to still be doing this now when I started this project in March. Sadly however, the Covid Virus is still with us. 

I am sure you want to look at more pleasant things. i know right now that family and simple things in life are far more important than money and possessions. 

So here we go
Monday 27 July to Sunday 2 August  

 Monday 27 July 2020 - a quick trip to see our "finance man" in our capital city, Perth, gave us the opportunity to visit our botanical gardens, Kings Park, which overlooks Perth.
You can read more about our visit here if you misssed it last week: Eucalypt-macrocarpa-or-rose-mallee?

 Tuesday 28 July 2020 - cows and blue tree by the railway crossing on the way into town. Do you have "Beyond Blue" trees for mental health where you live? They are popping up here and there in fact there are over 500 in Australia. Trees that are already dead of course. 

Someone asked about the blue trees -  there is a website - Blue Tree Project
Their mission - Our mission is to help spark difficult conversations and encourage people to speak up when battling mental health concerns. 

By spreading the paint and spreading the message that "it’s OK to not be OK", we can help break down the stigma that’s still largely attached to mental health.

Wednesday 29 July 2020 - I took a photo in the corridor of the Art Gallery and then played around in post processing after

Thursday 30 July 2020 - I loved the effect of this native wisteria clambering over a gate along one of our walks

 Friday 31 July 2020 - only one photo today! A new pair of fun socks....do you like the flamingos?

 Saturday 1 August 2020 -  beautiful Hebertia in the little bush block near where we live

 Sunday 2 August 2020 - We went out to Manea Park to see if there are any native orchids flowering yet. But the rain came down, so we had to dash back to the car after we hadn't been there long. I did find these tiny Pink Fairy orchids though.

Monday 3 August - Saturday 8 August 2020
Looking back over this past week, we haven't gone far from home. I had a "bit" of a cold for a few days, but it cleared up by the end of the week.

Monday 3 August 2020 - baking biscuits

Tuesday 4 August 2020 - a young lady was dressing models in the window at the shopping centre
Wednesday 5 August 2020 - some colour in my winter garden
Thursday - 6 August 2020 - do you feel sometimes like you are going around in circles? We saw these marks on the paving when we went walking
Friday - 7 August 2020 - lavender in my garden

Saturday - 8 August 2020 - some winter weather blowing in 

So there you have it - a little look at the last two weeks. I hope you are yours are doing ok. Stay safe and enjoy the simple pleasures of your week ahead.

Hello there! I love reading your comments. If you scroll down to the bottom you can comment too! I would love to hear from you.


  1. Oh what a breath of fresh air you are in my life! I needed this trip through your last two weeks today as mine have been a test of the expat will!! Take care, stay safe and keep the posts coming!

    1. thanks Jackie, I am glad I cheered you up. I hope you have a better week. Great to hear from you. Stay safe.

  2. Photography is so good for focusing on something besides the thoughts in your head about the world. It focuses you onto the subject and takes all worries away.

  3. Hello,

    The days are flying by! Your flowers images are beautiful. I would love to grow lavender and wisteria. Family and your happiness are important, now more than ever. Great series of photos and mosaics. Take care, enjoy your day! Wishing you a great week!

  4. The lavender in your garden is beautiful and I love that purple flower...and the sky! Lovely mosaics this week! Enjoy your week.

  5. PS Today at noon I watched a part of a program on the National Geographic channel called Wild Australia. It's neat that some of it looked familiar after reading your blog over the years. I enjoyed it while I ate my lunch!

  6. Jill - I have never heard of Beyond Blue trees. Maybe you can tell us more about this in a future post? Love the wisteria on the gate. Do you think it happened by chance? Gorgeous orchids - and other flowers too! Thanks for linking up, my friend!

  7. Your blog proves that goodness can happen on any day, in any season, if we choose to look for it.

  8. Would be great to know the mindset of the person who drew the arrows. Now with covid, I would even welcome hectic days of circling other than the boredom of this new boring circling around staying safe and boredom of what they're call the 'new normal'. Beautiful sky photo, and love the colorful flowers. No blue trees here, but what a great idea to fancy up the dead trees for the eyes. Have a great week.

  9. Loved the wisteria growing on gate.

  10. Your photos are always wonderful to see with your bright colors and awesome scenery. Hopefully, you can stop your photo-a-day because of lockdown and maybe continue because it has become a habit :)

    It's awesome to see you at 'My Corner of the World' this week!! Thanks for linking up.

  11. Thank you for sharing this lovely captures at My Corner of the World.
    It's a great idea, photograph each day for remembering. I like your new socks.🤗

    Stay healthy and well.

  12. Beautiful flower photos and much experienced and delicious baked, wonderful the posting.
    Take care and stay healthy, Elke

  13. Lovely photos here. Thanks for sharing at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2020/08/play-time.html

  14. Love your covid-photo-a-day project! I've been taking pictures of the clouds every day since 2020 began. I love that it encourages me to get out. And it's always funny when other people see me pointing my phone at the sky like "what is she doing?!?!" lol. Hopefully, there will be a vaccine for covid soon. In the mean time, thanks so much for sharing your pics!

    With Love,

  15. Jill, I love the purple orchid photo. Wonderful collection of shots. Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Sylvia D.

  16. Hello Jill. I loved your photos, particularly all the purple flowers. That was my mother's favorite color and always reminds me of her. I found your blog through a comment you left on Lydia's Where the Wild Things Were blog.
