It's a VERY hot day here in Ballarat Australia. My poor garden is being blown about with hot hot winds. I've been waiting patiently for my Christmas Lillies to bloom, and when I went outside before, one had opened and the pot had blown over. I brought it inside to the Laundry. I've waited too long to see it damaged by weather. This picture is a special Snowflake Agapanthus that is just opening too, but it's safely in the ground.
My birds were hot too. I gave them some fresh bath water and sprayed the cages to cool them down. This little lady was perching over her 5 eggs . . . she must have worried about them cooking underneath her.
This is one of the new babies this season. Some nice soft colourings and a quiet nature . . . must be a girl!
This white one was a baby last year, and has already had 2 sets of babies this season. Unfortunately no white ones like her yet.
A new baby this season with a distinctive black eyebrow on one side only.
California Poppies valiantly flowering in the heat
. . . and my beautiful blue Cornflowers - a lovely display this summer outside my back door.
I'm looking forward to this year being a "good one!"
