It is just too hot!

 Our new rose (Blue Moon) has given us some lovely blooms to enjoy.
 Our summer weather does not affect our cactus plants.

 We have enjoyed seeing these fuchsias blooming
 as well as the lavender.
The above is an Australian Native Yellow Hibiscus.   Lovely pleated petals.
Needless to say this flower did not last in all the heat!

We in Victoria have experienced a very hot week with temperatures in 40cs.  We expect a cool change very soon and it will be very welcome!  Our thoughts are with the people threatened by fires at this time.

That's all for now.

Happy New Year!

This is the first sunrise for 2014.  A few moments after I took this picture of the sun rising behind the Dandenong Ranges  grey clouds came down and it has been a mostly cloudy day since!

Wishing every one a happy and peaceful 2014.

That's all for now,
