Between Showers

Between the showers the roses are blooming beautifully. They seem to have really benefited from the extra watering. However, I fear that their beauty will be short lived with the predicted heavy rain over the next week

Family portrait

Yesterday, I posted a pic, introducing a new visitor to my front yard. Here he is again, with some cold, lazy friends

Wake up and stand up properly, guys.

Here’s the formal photo of the rest of his family/friends.

Have you heard the expression ducks in a row? Well, here are pelicans on a log, in a row.

Look who has come to visit

I have had a break from taking photos. I’d forgotten what a thrill it is to capture the moment in the lens. I’ve been very busy and there just did hasn’t been the usual number of birds around for a while. I’ve speculated about why this is the case. Perhaps the unusually wet weather around Australia has tempted them to go exploring and visit other areas, while food is plentiful. I’m hoping that other theories of disease and general bird numbers declining are incorrect.

I love these birds. I can watch them for hours, while they, in turn, watch me!! I think that this is a youngster. He was posing out the front of my house, showing off to announce his arrival. He knew I was there. I’m so glad he and his friends are back.


It’s been very hot and I’ve been busy with my new shop and renovating the building attached to it. So, my glasshouse has been neglected. It’s on automatic watering, but not automatic weeding and tending. Here’s a survivor or two. I love the variation in the leaf colours.

Vaxxed, at last

He’s only 11, and his turn finally came about. I worry about him and all the other kids today. They’re so aware, but bravely face up to it all. ‘Specially love this one.

Such a big chair and a brave little boy
Lollies and a balloon but the eyes say it all
Childhood regained!!
