The weather has been hot lately... sizzling hot. This is a flower from my garden - it looks as bright as fire and is very happy in the sunniest part of the garden. It's the weekend... too hot to venture out until the sun begins to set, except to dash outside to take this photo!

In Full Bloom

I stopped in at a plant nursery the other day and  saw that they had the most beautiful bromeliads. They just reminded me so much of Florida - I couldn't resist. I bought a huge pot in full bloom. Three gorgeous flowers. I love pink and green together. Now the job is to keep them moist and in the shade.

The last of the morning light

The best time to take pictures in most places, and in Libya especially, is either in the early morning or early evening just before sunset. During the day the light is too strong and pictures often turn out hazy because of the dust in the north African air. I was out with my camera this morning. This is the last picture I took before stopping because the light was changing. Time to take a break until later this evening.

About This Blog

A photoblog... a picture a day... maybe... It all depends on whether my kids leave my battery supply alone and the internet connection, not to mention my level of motivation.

Or I can simply say:
'A picture a day, insha'allah!'
