To many of you this photo may not be very exciting....
but if you lived here and for years had put up with big cracks in your back yard or, at best, brown grass you might get as excited as we do when we look at our lawn !!!
This Summer with regular rain has meant that we have lush, green lawn.
Oh, of course, that means it needs to be mowed more often but doesn't it look GREAT !
Finally there seems to be a hint of Autumn in the air and the cooler days ( 25C ) and nights ( 17C ) has meant the Grevilleas in our backyard are full of buds.
And when these flowers appear .....
they attract the Lorikeets - my favourites!
This morning I could hear them in the bushes but seeing them was difficult, even though they are so brightly coloured.
Do you want to play Spot the Birdie?
Can you spot one hiding here?
Here it is !
It's much easier this time.
They chatter, screech and squabble with eachother the whole time - no pretty chirping or singing from these I'm afraid.
We are enjoying a last spot of colour from these till the weather warms up again.
and this new agave seems happy in this spot.
With the wattles, the grevilleas and the bottlebrushes, I often think we have more flowers in Autumn and Winter than we do in Spring and Summer !
and I love the cooler weather !
We're heading towards my favourite time of year.
