Each week, Lysha puts up a photographic challenge with prompts for us to look out for, then we share on Lysha's Saturday (my Sunday). Get inspired!

This week the prompts were: Backyard quarterly, Across the street, Starts with L, Next, Choose anything.

Backyard quarterly: Looking south (towards Antarctica for those in the northern hemisphere).  The vege garden and the chicken yard.

Across the street:  It is lovely and leafy in our street.  These neighbours have sheep behind the hedge. 

Starts with L:  An herbal plant called Lambs Ear.  It's true, it feels just like a lamb's ear!  It is great for stopping minor bleeding - you just press it onto the bleeding area.  Lambs Ears (Stachys byzantina)

Next:  This is our NEXT home;  we are moving there at the end of April.

Choose anything: quail roam through our yard.  The bird life is something we are really going to miss when we move, as we really enjoy watching the variety and sound as well as the antics.

Oh, I wish we had sheep across the street. And your move is getting sooo close. Also, I love how soft Lamb's Ear is.

I have always loved the look for lambs ear. I need to try and grow that.
