Bloomin' flowers!

Some of the flowers we have blooming around our place right now. The one directly above is from my folks the day they left to go back home. It's just stunning with it's bright red lanterns and the birds love to hide in it as they're approaching the birdbath. And then of course, I couldn't go past the hibiscus bloom in all it's radiant glory without just basking in it for a while. And lastly, the orchids are just blowing me away with their long lasting quite exquisite blooms...

Calling in the snakes

My Mum, who visited recently, bravely exclaimed two night before she was to leave that she really was disappointed she never got to see Strangles the Python on this trip. S/he hadn't been seen for months. Anyway, this glorious creature turned up as if s/he heard the call! What a thrill for Mum!

Mum and Dad visit!

Mum and Dad came to visit us after their fabulous cruise on a luxury liner over the top end of Australia. Here we are enjoying coffee at the Byron Beach Cafe at Clarkes Beach. Look at those beautiful blues in the background!

A Curt foto fest

A 'Curt feast' for his Moms eyes! Sorry I haven't updated much Rose. Life has a way of getting in the road! Apart from the fact that we so rarely seem to have the camera with us, isn't that always the way. Life is good. My folks are here from WA so we're having a break all round and just enjoying each other. Will post more pics this week........

In honour of Pablo

Meet Pablo, he's the beautiful young Columbian born galactic traveller on the left of this pic just above, staying with Sage (seated next to him) our next door neighbour for many months and during his time there, he became a friend of ours too. He spent many hours helping Curt with the heavy jobs, the harder jobs around the garden mainly, cleaning up elephant grass, pruing trees, carting heavy rubbish. And we'd spend many hours afterwards just talking about life, the universe and everything. I always liked to feed him, thinking that his Mum would have liked that. Pablo also loves to sing, forming a group with some other friends called The Mozzarella. Here he is jamming with Curt and his friend from The Mozzarella.
He left yesterday, he's off exploring new worlds, heading up to Brisbane. We'll miss him.
Hey Pablo, if you happen to check this blog out some time, I've lost the link to your "my space" address, would love to link others to your Mozzarella music!
