The 15th Australasian Quilt Convention Quilt Show

I always enjoy going to the Royal Exhibition Building



There are always lots of vendors

and lots of beautiful quilts to see

I took this picture on one of my walks.  We are starting to see some Autumn colours despite our Indian summer.


That's all for now,

A long dry summer

This summer it we have had some smoky days from the fires

the ground has been so dry

not much green grass but lots of yellow colour


It was nice to see these Ibis


 and this Eastern Rosella

and these three during my walks

A grey Heron

At last we have had some good rain fall

After the rain the sun came out and I was lucky to see this double rainbow.

It has been a dry long hot summer and as we head into Autumn I hope we get lots of rain to replenish the water catchments etc.

That's all for now,

Last day of January

When I visit the Owl Bushland Reserve I enjoy seeing these lovely mosaics.
An Eastern Rosella
                                                          
                                                                     An  Echidna                               
                                                                   A  Kookaburra
An Owl
                                                        

                         

                                                                      and a Butterfly

                  The Oleander bush and the Sunflowers can tolerate the hot summers we have
                              

                        
                                    One of the lovely rescue horses I see on one of my walks. 

                                                                    That's all for now,

Happy New Year 2019

One of my favourite pastimes is walking


There is always so much to see

Although a common sight I do enjoy the cockatoos and seeing all the birds around our neighbourhood

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year

That's all for now,

The end of Spring and the Royal Botanical Gardens





The above are a few of the lovely blooms we have enjoyed this last Spring

Recently I enjoyed a visit to the Royal Botanical Gardens

The gardens never disappoint me

There are always lots of flowers out in bloom and interesting plants to see.  The mature trees are magnificent.

During my walk I noticed Gardening Australia filming a segment for the TV show

A lovely sunny day to enjoy the surroundings.

This time of the year the Jacaranda trees are in full bloom adding lots of colour.


That's all for now,


Nessie
