My goodness it’s noisy here at p and c this morning!
We were woken first thing by a flock of corellas who had come to feast on our back door neighbours’ tree
then the workers arrived at the block next door, along with a cement truck. I think every tradie must be on site today as there are saws, sanders, hammers, nail guns and at least three different languages being spoken along side the ubiquitous radio blaring
so-called music (am I getting old??).
Plus there’s two trucks, one with a trailer for the digger, which appears to be digging the nature strip for some cabling. With all these tradies, our small street looks more like a car park and I’m just a tad concerned about how to get our car out of our driveway and into the street!
To top it off we have our own Mr Fix-it working on some much awaited jobs – yippee!! – and The Golfer has just mown the lawns and is now using the wipper-snipper. Arghhhhhhhh! Oh, and I have the washing machine going!
So I’m going to try some zen; concentrate on talking, quietly, with you and enjoying the photos I want to show you.
It was with a bit of a shock a couple of weeks ago that I realised the sun was much lower in the sky as I set off for my morning walk, and the evenings are drawing in; no more long languid sunsets. Now, here we are, already into the second week of March, which is officially Autumn. While I loathe the heat of Summer, I feel I’ve been gypped this year; it had been predicted that it would be a long, hot Summer, but here in Melbourne we’ve had so many cool and overcast days that it feels like Summer has passed us by. Those north of the Great Divide are probably grateful to see the end of heat and endless sunshine, though!
Yesterday I spent the afternoon out with Cousin S. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera and my phone battery was flat, so couldnt take any pics to share with you of her gorgeous garden. Grrrr! I shall just have to visit again, as Cousin S suggested. I was, however, the recipient of one of Cousin S’s beautiful bird baths that she’s been making.
As I watered the garden this morning, trying to block out the cacophony, I marvelled at the spiral effect of the new hydrangea leaves
Hope you’re enjoying a quieter day than I!
