Photo scavenger hunt - April

Here are my offerings for this months photo scavenger hunt.  I applied a little lateral thinking to a couple of the photos that were potentially difficult for me to get. 


APRIL SHOWERS


April raindrops on foliage.




BREAKFAST


Home made muesli with vanilla yogurt and milk.



MY CAMERA


Cannon G12, a recent gift from hubby.




A SET OF KEYS

 My house keys.



AN INTERESTING SHOP NAME

"Hair Down There", a local hairdresser who has his salon downstairs from the main street level. 




A CROSS


A jewellery finding.




A CHURCH

Kalorama Anglican church.



EGGS

 Eggs from our chooks.



SOMETHING YELLOW






Pears, in season now.



A SCULPTURE


Southbank, Melbourne.



SOMETHING TO DO WITH SHAKESPEARE


Shakespeare wrote "The Merchant of Venice" so I've taken a photo of an oil painting I did of Venice two years ago.




SOMETHING TO MARK ST. GEORGE'S DAY



 St. George killed the dragon, so here is one of Miss G.'s collection of dragons ready to do battle.



Roll on May's scavenger hunt.

Hey Anne, once again you have me gobsmacked at your artistic talent. That painting of Venice is absolutely amazing........

I see you have clever little chookies too, that date stamp their eggs, such a good idea.....

Isn't that church at Kalorama a wonderful building, it's like being in England......... I wish.

Those pears look so beautifully ripe and ready to eat, I am drooling, yum

Thanks Claire for your kind comment on my painting. I absolutely love painting it and hope to find this exact same spot when we visit Europe next year.

Anne, you have such a lovely blog here. I'm very glad I found it today via Sweet Sweet Life. I also enjoyed the comment that you made on Amy's post. x

Those are lovely - love that shop name although it seems to imply that it is somewhere you might go for waxing rather than a haircut!
