A Hot Week

I found this sweet small brown  and cream transfer ware tureen circa 1900 for $3 in my fave church shop ...I love the shell shaped handles.I have a small collection of this colour and I love it

It has been a hot week and I have spent the week pulling out or pruning and the garden is looking very parched

Hot dawn

A full moon on a very hot night

The girls cleaning up the nectarine windfall...we had a huge crop....happy not to eat another one for a year


A few summer roses still

Sedum slowly turning pink

This little Williewagtail is too cute 

Baby birds splashing on a very hot day

Was it something I said Sascha?

  1. Meg, your photos just knock me out every time. So beautiful.

  2. Such beauty, I am just starting to think about the garden as Spring is in the air. A great find at the thrift store.

    1. Thank you ...I am looking forward to Autumn and cooler weather xxx

  3. Your photos are Beautiful as always , The baby birds ones especially stunning , You could win a photography competition with that one and that sedum plant is to die for , I am hoping to make a big impact in my garden this year but it will never match yours xxx

    1. Thank you ....I think my darling husband giving a great camera for my birthday has given me such pleasure, I just wish were not in a drought as we would not have lost so much xxxx

  4. I love you bird bath photos - they made me smile :)

  5. Thank you Jayne, I spend lot of time watching them in the birdbath on hot days

  6. A lovely snapshot of your garden Meg and the trials and tribulations of the very hot summer you have experienced....I hope Autumn will be very kind to you and the garden. I too love watching the little birds at play they certainly know how to entertain...have you a great week.

  7. You take such wonderful pictures. They make the ordinary so special...the flowers and the very nice. Thank you for sharing your talents.

  8. Oh those baby birds are too sweet.

  9. The birds usre were enjoying splashing around. My cats sleep like yours as well, and I think it is cute how they cover their eyes.

  10. Your bird pictures are just stunning and that view - wow!

  11. Those baby birds..sooo sweet!!We are losing a Pittosporum which has been in front of my sewing room window for 15 years, but this last heat wake has been too much for it, and half the tree is dead.I am sad because the New Holland Honey eaters have built nests there for all those years.I am going to miss seeing the babies!I hate to see a tree die!

  12. Meg,
    The photo of your newest thrifty find is what drew me to your post, dear one!
    Your photography is exquisite!
    I adore Sascha!!!


I love to hear from you and appreciate your messages. Meg xx
