Except for the need for rain you could be forgiven for thinking what a perfect morning it is. This view from the kitchen window always makes me feel pleased to be living in Cedarvale.

I was trying to get a photo of the 3 kookaburra's that were in a tree, but as usual I missed the moment so turned my attention to the flowers.

NEWTON ST CYRES - DEVON Thatched Cottages- When we arrived in August the front of these cottages was a mass of flowers. This was a very overcast wet day but I still think they look pretty. We past through here every day on our way to work and I kept saying I must come and take photos. Finally did it a few days before we left.

This picture demonstrates the join between the thatch.

JUNK



Behind the shed.
Doesn't everyone have that pile of junk that might come in handy one day.
Camera-Cannon EOS 300D -even though it's a bit distracting I like the way the sky and trees are reflected in the discarded window.

PRINCESS DE MONT ROSE





I have numerous roses that are in pots lining my driveway. They are not the easiest plants to grow in Queensland due to the heat and high humidity. There are so many lovely cold weather plants that I grew up within Victoria that just do not survive here and I wouldn't even try. There are some roses that are tolerate the heat, it's just a matter of trying to select the right ones. I would like to try and grow orchids and should make it my challenge for the year.
I have been having trouble with the photo download and wonder if it is the site or my computer. We spend are good few hours deleting all the things we have accumulated over the past few years. Articles, photos (blurred etc), free downloads, just to free up some space. Has the computer taken over as our hoarding site instead of the house. Even some of the work related articles now leave me wondering as to why I thought "that will come in handy one day". Problem is one day is a bit like tomorrow, it never comes. Some (other half) would argue that as soon as you throw it out you find you need it.

SUNRISE- Sunday 30/04/2006



It rained later in the day so maybe "red sky by morning sailor take warning" is true. As we rely on rain water for all our water, (no town supply) we love it when it's a nice steady rain that tops up the water tank and gives the garden a good soak. As the other half has a phobia with heights so it's my job to ensure the gutters are clear. We do have brushes in the gutters to stop the accumulation of leaves but they do not stop all of it. I have lost count of the times I have been up the ladder soaking wet. (exception is if there is lightning)
