Blue Wrens

We have so many birds hopping around in the grass at the moment. It's gorgeous. The blue wrens keep teasing me by coming close, but they move so fast it's beyond my current skill to get a nice clear photo of them!

Paper wasps

I'm not a huge fan of wasps hanging around the house, but I do find the diversity of wasps interesting. I was able to take a picture of these ones near the house. You can see the hexagonal cells and various stages of the larvae.

God is so amazingly creative!

A red rose still wet after the rain.

The deep red of beetroots and plums.

Bush walking

We had a trip up to visit my parents today. Mum has so many extraordinary flowers in her garden at the moment.

 Then we went on a bush walk and found even more.

Then littlest chicken found this leaf with a heart-shaped nibble from it!

Happy New Year!

We are enjoying the warmer evenings now: lazy BBQ dinners outside, lots of bike riding. Littlest chicken is chuffed to be rid of her training wheels.

The other two are happy to test the suspension on their bikes.

And did I mention how much I like my new camera?? Who knew watering could be so much fun?
