Rain, Rain and more rain

Lately we have been receiving lots of rain.  Too much for some areas in Australia where they have experienced flooding.  I am sorry for all the distress the flooding has caused.

Around the area where I live the bird life have been enjoying all the extra water pooling on the ground

The birds like the tall gumtrees

It will not be long before our hot summer weather begins so it is nice to see some moisture around on the plants etc.

That's all for now,

Spring has arrived

Once again we are enjoying lovely blossoms this Spring

This rainbow lorikeet is enjoying the flowers on this gum tree

A young crimson rosella who still has a lot of its' juvenile green feathers to shed

Its' parents were not far away

More of the lovely blossoms

One of my favourite pastimes

One of my favourite pastimes is walking, especially along the old Warburton Railway track that has been made into a lovely pathway.

There are lots of interesting trees along the track

and this old railway tunnel

The wattle trees are coming out in bloom and this one overhangs the pathway.

A close up of the lovely wattle blooms

Deviating off the Warburton track there are lots of properties which make the walk interesting.

A stump which has moss growing over it.  It is nice to see some greenery around because of the rain we have had.  Summer is so different!

Pretty blossoms are appearing now giving signs that Spring is fast approaching

Nature is marvellous and it is always enjoyable seeing all the changes throughout the year.

That's all for now,

Another lovely start to the day at Autumn time

This morning I was lucky to see this beautiful sunrise

We in Victoria have been experiencing beautiful Autumn days.

The sky kept changing colours as the sun rose

Finally the sun came up and we all enjoyed a lovely sunny day.

That's all for now,

Anzac Day and Autumn

We have been having some lovely warm sunny days during this Autumn time

The leaves are beginning to show their Autumn tones

Even when the leaves have fallen on to the ground they make a lovely display.

During my walk I saw a lot of flowers

The wattle trees have started to blossom

I saw these wind flowers which always make a lovely display

and this well planted wheel barrow

as well as this banksia

and these silver birches.

These flowering bushes add a lot of colour

It is a lovely time of year.

It is  Anzac Day today, a day in which to remember the people who served and died in wars and conflicts.

Lest we forget

That's all for now,

Whirling Geese

My quilting guild runs a block of the month gift quilt program and for the month of March the block chosen was Whirling Geese.  I enjoyed making the above blocks.  It is a great way making quilts for the people who need them.

That's all for now,
