What a mix of things this last weekend was. Voting and forecast rain & thunderstorms that didn’t happen and heat and the next day? The same, but not happy with the result of the vote. The only good thing to come out of it, as far as I was concerned was this delightful wee New Holland Honey eater and the flowers he was feeding on:
If you look closely, you’ll see him actually feeding:
A rose in someone’s garden, lovely & golden:
and of course, my beautiful girl:
I walked in Hyde Park. Because of the lack of rain & the heat and all the ‘road works’, I stayed away from the water till I saw these herons:
Apart from that, I walked amongst the trees. The heat & humidity were revolting. The trees were lovely though:
and the willows with a hint of Autumn in the plane tree leaves:
Flowers on Saturday & Sunday as I walked for sunset photos:
& Sunday’s sunset: all sullen and full of storms and rain that never happened:
But later that night? Very late?
Rain, thunder, lightning – lots of rain.
My courtyard flooded as the gutters overflowed in a Niagara Falls simulation creating ‘one of the smaller of the Great Lakes of Mt Lawley’. That hasn’t happened since – I think it’s 2010.
In the morning:
Raindrops on the lemon grass and magnolia leaves:
My garden smells lovely. I am off to Hyde Park…
