Our friends the lorikeets come every morning,
enjoying a few sunflower seeds from our bird feeder.
Their bright colours blend right in with the Christmas season.
My friend M. gave me this beautiful tea set for Christmas.
See: Lorikeet colours.
I love it a lot, and we'll give it quite a workout over the season.
This is my lifetime collection of cookie cutters.
From all around the world.
Festive gingerbread, coming soon.
Does anyone know the name of this yellow flower?
We have a couple of tough old shrubs which get covered in these brilliant yellow blooms.
The lorikeets become ecstatic with the excitement
of swilling the nectar they apparently contain.
Some people don't like the lorikeets' noise,
but I think they are really cute and funny.
Last night I sang carols with my
Choir for Ladies of a Certain Age.
We visited this historic church located in a hollow
directly beside our biggest sports stadium here in Brisbane,
and thankfully preserved during the construction.
The church was beautiful, and the singing exhilarating -
you know it's Christmas when you sing the Angels songs...
I wore my sparkly Angel brooch, recently found at Seers, Vancouver.
