Churros are sooo good. They are really popular over here. I love how English speakers pronounce the word "churros" laugh

Love all the animal pictures, Precious and Mollie look like they're having fun. That's a whole lot of snow, Liz!

LOL .. I had a Hispanic woman trying to teach me the pronunciation of it. I think she's still laughing. Those rolling Rs are tricky! wink

The really nice thing is, you don't need to pronounce the word correctly to enjoy them smile

While I was out walking my dog, the shadows cast by the agapanthus against my neighbour's wall caught my eye.

Thought I'd better photograph my Champagne rosebud before the wind and rain got to it!

Beautiful rosebud, and I love the shadows MG.

Precious decided to climb a snow mountain today - she's at about my chest height here, I guess. Happily, she decided to come back the way she went up, otherwise I'd have had to follow her!

In contrast, Rosie, at 13, is no longer an adventurous cat. Come to think of it , she never was! She still scrubs up well though. She has spent a lot of time indoors lately as she hates fireworks.

Yes, that's about as lively as they get except for special occasions, such as a visit from Oprah!

I hope someone's feeding the little guy, because those leaves in the foreground are not eucalyptus! Pittosporum, I would think.

Cornwallis Beach, one of the many beaches around Auckland. It was a beautiful and warm Sunday but hardly anyone there which was unusual.

Swan P82, along with its mate P20, live in Williamstown's waterside tourist precinct.
Parks Victoria oversees the well-being of flora and fauna in a narrow coastal strip, hence the identification collar.

Rosie the cat looks very similar to my previous one, Skippy. He was a bit fluffier but otherwise noticed the similarity straight away.

This is the same estate as last time at the top of the hill.

This tour bus was parked outside my corner store this afternoon, and provided a welcome, if unexpected, splash of colour on a dull day.
