    Hope you get your warm weather Alan…..we moved our furniture into the middle of the patio in case it got too bad but all was well.

    Sad when birds fly into our windows, we get it sometimes…..I usually pick them up and put them in a quiet part of the garden…..and when I check later they have gone……….so I guess they recover and fly away…..no cats around here to get them.

    Morning all from a wet and windy Perth……………not too wet just heavy showers now and again. We didn’t get it too bad in our suburb but a few suburbs up some one lost their roof on their 2 storey home…guess it was a metal one, once they start to lift the whole roof goes….that is why we have always stuck to tiles. Plant wise no damage,…

    Hello Anne, we only usually see the black Cockatoos in Spring when they came searching for food….they love the Bottlebrush flowers, can strip a scrub of the the blossoms quite quickly.
    At present we are in out second month of Autumn.

    Morning All….I videoed the Black Cockatoos in the neighbours tree this morning………who needs an alarm clock. I cant seem to put it on here for some reason. Never mind.
    I hope you all have a nice day and Easter…….tomorrow we have a cold front coming in with storms and maybe large hail, so I guess it will be an inside day.
    Hope your…[Read more]

      When you find a way of putting the video on here Sylvia I’d be interested in how. Am going to try some GG videos and if I can will put them/one here too, but have to find out how first, as they would be far too big to just upload.
      How long do the Black Cockatoos stay in and around your garden? Is it all through the season? and, what season are…[Read more]

    • The easiest way to post a video is to upload it to Youtube and then post the link to Youtube here Star & Anne. The video will play on our site but Youtube “hosts” the video, so it doesn’t use up our bandwidth allowance. :good: @Star @Gertie

    Enjoy your day Cilla.

  • It was a noisy morning about 9am…..the Black Cockatoos came visiting my neighbour’s garden after his Macadamia nuts off of his tree. I love the call they have, a beautiful bird, not colourful but […]

    Morning All…….lunch time here. I have been pottering outside today…watering, tidying etc.
    This is my next project a bench to paint, to match one I did a year or so ago. In between I have the second part of my fern garden to sort out……….it is over 12 years old and I want to clear it out and put new ferns and tropicals in there.
    You all…

    Alexander James looks a lovely baby.

    Thank you Cilla………….it is finished now…will be putting it in the lounge today…….it will match the other Hampton style furniture I have.

  • Star posted a new activity comment 1 week, 5 days ago

    Yes, sometimes I have energy but it has to be there the same time as I have the inspiration and they dont often come together….lol
    But now it is getting cooler here I think I will be doing more.

    Yes, Tubs it was stained pine..so rubbed it down a little to break the surface and then applied the 3in1….it is a sealer, primer and undercoat in one……so you just have to put the gloss paint on top. I used a water based gloss paint. I dont know if you can get Taubmans paint in the UK.
