The continuing cold wind defeated me today and I didn't take a photo, so here's one I took recently. This is the roof of the primary school I attended many years ago. It was burnt down last year and will probably be torn down and replaced with a more modern school.
It was very cold today and I didn't feel like venturing outside. I finally dragged myself out just before 5pm, thinking it was too late to take a photo. But the setting sun was painting the clouds with shades of pink and red, and I was able to snap a few quick photos.
I've been puzzled recently to see only one swan on the pond - I thought they always went in pairs. Today the other swan appeared, with her brood of cygnets following behind. And they came close enough for me to photograph them.
Yes, I live in the nation's capital ... but there are reasons for it being called 'The Bush Capital'. There is a native grassland reserve across the road and every so often animals move in for a few months, probably to control the non-native grasses. These are some of the current residents.
