Tauhou enjoying banana, Blackbird looking to me in the hope of food, Tui singing at full throttle in the afternoon sunshine.
It has been a lovely sunny afternoon. The light lingers on and the sun has only set in the past ten minutes.
The blackbirds were singing a good evening song and I spotted a Fantail in the garden.
I had no joy finding the Fantail but I did capture some photos showing the end of a calm, golden, late spring afternoon.
The most significant statistic for today is that it is Day 6 of fine, mild weather…..one enjoyable day after the next, which is stunning for July in my part of the winter world.
37 new garlic shoots are reaching skywards.
The pretty assortment of lettuces is enjoying this strange climate. I picked fresh leaves for our lunch.
The fruit and vegetable shopping has been done.
The roses are all pruned, bar a large white carpet rose. Nothing low growing or “carpety” with this giant.
The lawns have all been mowed and the scattered, dying leaves munched up by the mower.
Weeds have been pulled out.
I had a cup of tea sitting outdoors in the sun and snapped Mrs Blackbird.
An overdue thank you letter has been written and posted.
Two closets have been decluttered.
And I have posted to my blogs.
Now I am going to do the Anacross in today’s paper to give the word puzzle part of my brain a workout.
