Where one fern was always green

We've had our fair share of rain this week, now it's hot and humid. Everything was green today. 


  1. I find it fascinating that now, with the Internet, we can chat with people as if they're in our hometown and yet, as this post contrasts with my most recent post (about the arrival of snow in my backyard), those conversationists are actually far, far away in totally different environments.

    The picture of the birds is amazing.

  2. Love this post. But kind of hate you for being somewhere that is green. Here, it is white as far as the eye can see, and it's minus a million.

  3. Great photos, Baxter--it's hard to believe that birds like this just show up in one's backyard, anywhere. And the cat is so sweetly catlike.

  4. I know what you mean, Shy. it's like we're all in the same room but the room is actually much bigger than we realise! The Rainbow Lorikeets are amazing - their undercarrigaes are blue and red. They are truly well dressed birds.

    A-Dubs, I get a bit wistful when I see my Northern Hemisphere brethren frolicking in tights, scarves and snow. I wish we could call, "half time, change sides" on the blogging universe sometimes.

    Thank you Charlotte. These birds are a very common sight in Sydney - they love the native trees and are also very partial to fruitbread in honeywater, which is what they're all eating in this shot.
