Nothing but blue skies.....!


Well the skies over Perth are blue again, the rain will be back next week but a brief respite is always welcome. Thanks so much for the kind wishes, believe me some of the suggestions for dealing with a migraine will be trialed and tested next time. Robert in Athens I'm totally with you on the 'drink lots of water', this plus an apple a day is my sure fire cure for pretty much everything! Oh yes and some very 'interesting' suggestions re the aphids attacking my roses problem, best two the tobacco infusion suggested by Nick in Melbourne, definitely trying that one and the ladybugs, which we do have here but not in enough numbers to be effective, suggested by Pat in Toronto, leading me to follow up on a tip from Andrew in Melbourne and yes, you can mail order ladybugs from where else but a bug shop who knew!! The last time I took pictures of this sculpture of Rajah, Mila and Echo at Hillary's Marina was over a year ago, a sad story and a wonderful tribute to three gentle creatures, it's definitely one of my favourite sculptures around Perth. I know it sounds a little masochistic to say, but it's almost worth having a migraine once in a while to experience how fantastic it feels when it's gone, now if I could just get rid of the pinched nerve in my back haha!! Hope you have a fab weekend, stay safe.....

  6. Great sculpture. Your light hearted post-migraine thought reminds me of the question (joke) about hitting your head with a hammer, ans. because it feels so good when I stop. I know its no joke, but a little humor sometimes helps.

  16. So glad you are feeling better (too much choc?). The dolphin sculpture was made by Charles Smith & Joan Walsh-Smiths (http://www.smithsculptors.com/) the same artist's who did the Kangaroos in Perth & other things.

  18. Migraines followed by a pinched nerve? Why, Grace, you are absolutely falling to pieces!! I have never had migraines, so I am bereft of suggestions.

    These are nice sculptures.

  19. Love the sculptures. Re the migraines, a friend who used to have them regularly, not even the painkillers were helping any more, went to an osteopath who aligned her skull (or something of the sort) and she has been migraine free since!
