Birds, butterflies and 36degrees.....!


Unlike the raucous, flamboyant birds that inhabit my back garden screeching for food early in the morning.. the insect eating, honey sippers flit around in the trees and bushes in my front garden. The Red Wattlebirds above are described as 'big & noisy', maybe I'm lucky, maybe I have a 'Michael Bublé pair :) I love to hear them warbling outside my bedroom window as they call to their mate. The butterfly mentioned is atop the key lime tartlet that I 'experienced' last week in Le Papillon Patisserie, très délicieux! It's going to be 36C here in Perth today, bit of a shock to the system after the perfect spring weather, hopefully it's just a rogue hotty, it's too early for extreme temperatures, although the weather has been misbehaving around the globe lately oui! Hope you're enjoying the weekend, take care and stay safe.....

  1. What a sweet little tart, Grace. And is that bird actually hanging upside down? Crazy. Have a nice day.

  2. I LOVE the bird and the beautiful, yellow flowers!! But of course, since it is early morning and I haven't eaten -- the tart looks delicious!! So, before I drool on my keyboard , I'd better go have some breakfast even if it is the "same old stuff"!! Hope your weekend is off to a fun start!

  5. I bet they have almond croissants there! Love the birds - I even like to hear them when they have awakened me way to early, Grace.

  6. Love seeing the wattlebird tip upside down to reach nectar. Your photos highlight their pattern and colouring beautifully. Our wattlebirds sound quite enchanting usually, but when there is "danger" - as a cat around - the call becomes quite raucous. You must have all our good Spring weather. The best that can be said for ours is "erratic" with a tendency to chilly winds and rain. But we're still hoping for some semblance of Spring warmth eventually.

  7. Honey sippers, sounds like the name of a band from the 50s.

  8. Those are some neat birds! The only ones I've ever seen upside down were not even birds -- bats.

    On a note from Sunnbrook Farm the honey sippers sounds more to me like the Honey Drippers from the 70s or 80s.

  10. It looks like a life of decadent pleasure with those birds, flowers and that tarte.

    We're going in the opposite direction (sensible, since we're in the northern hemisphere), with -17 C by Tuesday night,

  14. Love those bird shots as I am an avid bird watcher. These guys are beautiful. They also appear to be very accommodating or else you have a very long lens.

  20. Really, really good shots, Grace. And, yes, the weather is doing silly stuff in some parts of our world but looks rather nice in Perth :).

  21. I can understand life must be better for birds "down under", and not up north where we now have +1C.
    Looks yummy....and pretty,-that little cake:)
