I was greeted by this beautiful pearly sunrise this morning,
precursor to a dull cold day.
Some birds were up early...
taking over the little lorikeet bird feeder.
Note, lorikeet in the background trying to scare large cockatoo...
Ah, that's better. Lorikeets 1, Cockatoos nil.
One of them then went and decapitated one of my rose buds.
Runaway nasturtium is having flowers..
This bit wanders over a chair..
Funny, cheerful plants.
My father loved butterflies, which made this patio set irresistible...
So did you see what Kate wore to Wimbledon?
Yes, the happy yellow dress from her Australian tour, 2014.
The one I shamelessly copied in navy and white linen...
My Sewing Sisters were here last week.
It was like Biscuit Day on The Great British Bake-off..
I worked on beading my dress for the upcoming wedding.
It is looking good and received the tick of approval from the Sisters...
and today I visited my father's last home before he went into residential care.
The old avocado tree was laden with fruit.
He loved that tree!
So many memories....
