'MY CUP RUNNETH OVER!' Red Cardinal after downpour. by 

Featured in ARTISTS OF RED-BUBBLE Group.

I am hoping that we are going to receive some rain from our devastating Cyclone Yasi. Many of my fellow Australians have suffered greatly at the velocity of this category 5 event. Nature sure can humble us but Australians have an enormous resilience to catastrophe’s of this nature but Queenslander’s have suffered greatly this time with the floods and now this.
I live in the hills of South Australia and in a rain shadow sometimes we benefit. As a nation we shall all miss and count the cost of the wonderful fruit and veg we buy from Queensland.
This photo was taken in the garden. Spring.

    Very beautiful capture Rita! Nautre sure does humble us, and I feel so bad that so many lost their homes, its so sad. The usa is almost totally blanketed with the worst snow, and ice storm ever. So many natural disasters. I really feel for all the poor in egypt, and the middle east. All they want to do is be able to buy bread, and have a job. Sad but scarry, if it all goes on too long we may not be able to buy bread. Lovely shot hon!!

  • Thank you Carolyn for your lovely comments. Yes my son is fine, his house escaped the Cyclone & the flooding, I talked to him this morning. He is now deployed with 4000 army personal to clear up the mess of all the devastation from where he is situated & all the way up the where the cyclone came through. Where the eye of the storm hit the poor souls have lost so much. One dead and a couple missing is terrible but it could have killed so many more if they hadn’t been prepared. Thank goodness for modern technology.I have answered your comments back to front but think you will understand! With love:)Rita.

    This time of year always seems to be big on natural disasters, but people are extraordinarily resilient. Gorgeous image Rita, I love the rich scarlet of the rose and the delicious droplets.

  • Oh you are so right Georgie, I have always loved Dorothea Mackellars poem ‘My Country’ but you would think that folk need to think and take note before they build in some areas! It’s is just so good that the people thought lost were found.
    Thank you for your lovely comments on my rose photo, I was pleased with it myself!! I always appreciate your critique, hugzz:)Rita.
