Skywatch Friday- Housing Estate - Part 4

Skywatch concludes my series of posting on the housing estate and its facilities.
Although we are a small island and our homes are mostly built upwards, we do remembered to have greenery around the island.

This tree is fully bloomed with yellow flowers. Dont ask me what tree this is...lol.
Beside the mini park (which I posted yesterday), there is a big field for residents to play foot ball, etc.

And yes, the field is well taken care of.

A short video (zoom bigger) of the mowing process. The birds love it cause it helps them find food...lol

I conclude the posting with an evening sunset photo taken from my brother's flat.

For other sky watchers, please hop over to Skywatch blog.

That sunset photo is very very nice.

I was amazed at the lush greenery when I visited. The tree lined streets are such a joy to see. They make one feel so happy.

This as been a great series of post about this housing estate... I comment before on how clean and tidy it is kept... Many many parts of England are 'tips' compaired to here.

A great sky watch as well to end on Alice.

Ha! I have just spent time on your food blog and feel very hungry now I really must look in there more often.

So varied but the sunset image is superb.

I like the last photo best. Its a beautiful photo of the sunset accompanied by the building next to it. The stripy design of the building gave an impression of rays that comes from the sun. Wonderful!

Have a fantastic weekend.

Thanks all for the nice comments. I hope to have more photos on more corners of our tiny island and our daily life. :)

Tom, hope you enjoy the food blog but been not very active lately cause I tried not to eat so much luxury food so that I can have a smaller waistline to fit into my new evening dress for my nephew's wedding in November...hahahaha

Don't you love the juxtaposition of architecture and nature? You captured it perfectly!

Today I've got Part II of For a Princess (with Part I recapped) - and as it is centered around a celebration, it fits perfectly what with all of the little princesses in their pink tiaras; ) I hope you can come by - I know you'll enjoy it.
