Another Sunflower

I hadn’t realised the different characteristics that these flowers could take on. This is a ‘Fluffy’ one.

It’s very hot here now. Hovering around 40 degrees C. for days now. My sunflowers are struggling bravely in the heat, but the constant heat takes a toll.

Fuchsia Dreaming

We’re in yet another heat wave, 40 degrees C tomorrow. My garden now suffers from the onslaught.

My sister lives hundreds of kilometres away in a much kinder climate. I’m envious of her fuchsias.

Happy New Year

What a surprise and a lesson to show you should persevere. I gathered up some eggs after a rare wet and stormy night. I found them abandoned by their mum, a guinea fowl. They were cold but I put them into the incubator and hoped for the best. I left them when I went away for Christmas and thought it was time to throw them away when I returned. Lucky I left them. They started hatching yesterday.

They are so tiny, but I’m watching them start eating and growing.

This little one has distinctive white marking around it’s head.

They were startled by the camera, and paraded around in a circle.
