(viewed 860 times)
It's autumn in Sydney. This was taken from Circular Quay Railway Station
this afternoon. A bit overcast and humid. Winter is on the way!

This beautiful butterfly sat on this tea tree bush for about an hour.
There haven't been any more like this one so I'm wondering if it was

Georges River on a beautiful day

I had the best day today. Went to visit a friend who lives south of Sydney.
Had lunch at the beach and a lovely walk on the sand. The skies were so blue
and the sand so fine and white. The sailboarders were out in force and it
was just the most stunning summer's day.

True Aussie summer

(viewed 684 times)
My air conditioner is broken! :-( Today I've had a serious reminder of what
summer in Australia is really like as opposed to the a/c edited version. It
was 38C and so hot I laid on the lounge and vegetated for most of the day in
front of the fan (thank God that hadn't broken down too). By mid afternoon
the cicadas and the crickets (ie the bugs not the blokes (I promise not to
rub it in that we beat the POMS 5/nil in the cricket! ;-) )) were raising
their song to full volume. There wasn't a puff of wind anywhere to stir the
heat and even my pet waterdragon was too tired to move from his/her resting
place on top of the pool fence.These photos are of the teenage magpies that have been prowling around and
bullying the parrots and the waterdragon. They strut around like they own
the place making their chortling sounds and threatening everyone and
everything to get out of their way or they'll peck your eye out (yes they
have been known to do that and peck a chunk of hair out too). Near the back
of the yard is a passionfruit vine that is in full fruit. The maggies seem
to think it's their personal fruit bowl.

My favourite quilt

(viewed 792 times)
I love this quilt. It's made from flannel and weighs a tonne but is so warm
and comfy.
