Mother nature can't make up her mind. Spring has sprung, we are on daylight savings time and for a few weeks we had a taste of summer
Flowers are sprouting everywhere, tulips and other brightly coloured flowers the names of which I do not know as I am name challenged when it comes to names of any growing plant. For the past week we have been drenched with torrential rains and a few wind storms with gusts of up to 95 kms/hr as was this morning as overheard on the radio. Last week during my daily commute we had wind gusts of around 45 kms/hr and I thought it was going to blow me over as I was meandering my way home on the crowded streets of Kingsway. We even got snow dusting the tops of our local mountains

It was a lazy day as I noticed this beautiful Triumph Bonneville parked on the sidewalk
I've noticed this Bonnie here before. It belongs to one of the mechanics
This bike appears as new but isn't as it has over 20K on the odometer, and has a minimalist instrument cluster which does not include a tachometer.
For a brief moment I was imagining being astride the bike in the rider's seat navigating myself through the Keys on the Great Ocean Highway and wondering what gear I was in since the noise of the engine gave no clue as to its actual engine speed.
It was obvious by the cleanliness of this bike that the owner was proud of his possession and was taking great care to ensure its longevity.
I couldn't help but notice this lady standing by the side of the road wearing this very short mini-skirt. I quickly whipped out my trusty camera to snap a pix but she must have had an eye in the back of her head and saw me.
(but I took the photo anyway)
While were were having an early dinner I was fiddling with my camera trying to be creative when I noticed this red Mini
and was wondering how I could make use of the red colour and the lettering on the restaurant window
and came up with this steaming cup of coffee
across the street I noticed this parkade which was a good place to park if you had a miniature VW
Lucky thing I have my camera, 'cause you never know what you're going to stumble across
