It's raining again. Lucky for me it was sunny long enough for a walk, shopping and lunch with a friend in Burleigh. This morning I heard the Wompoo dove for the first time this year. They're not around all the time, but it's easy to hear when they are back.
It's time to take down the flags I use as Christmas decorations. The colours go well with the greenery and bamboo screens. They come to me from Tibet via Berlin. A friend sends me wonderful packages from Berlin whenever she gets back from her exotic holidays. The socks she knits us are my favourites.

Our Agapanthus are at the end of their flowering stage so and are full of seed pods. The little storm lillies are living up to their name and flowering wonderfully.

It's still raining! It seems to do nothing but rain this year. The garden is sooo green it hurts your eyes. I love it, it really feels like we live in the tropics. Thank goodness for the little bats that live here and eat all our mosquito's. There's a colony of them here that lives alternately under our deck or up in the blinds. They hang upside down in a cluster all huddled together and from below they look very cute and fluffy.
