Tis 5.07 PM and I just took these images of the westerly sunlight shining through our lounge room window. The colored glass fisherman floats  remind me of the sea, and as the light reflects off the crystal drops, colored light is scattered around the room, dancing on various surfaces. It's lovely this time of the day, although it can get too hot at times. The ferns here thrive however, as does the rosary vine. As you can see , the hanger was quick to make up.

There aren't many growing in the garden at the time. Appreciate the few that have bloomed and continue to give pleasure indoors, propped in some old glass bottles.

Slow humid days in Melbourne.
Took a trip to the village shopping centre, which is very sleepy at this time of the year.
Shopped for a few staples at the discount store. 
Brown paper bags, cheesecloth and a couple of bundles of rope for my wind battered washing line! 
Also, I'll use some to conjure up a plant hanger for the rosemary vine in the lounge room.

after the rain

Although the rains caused havoc on the roads this afternoon, I'm pretty sure most welcomed the cool change and the accompanying down pours after today's humid and hot weather. took the opportunity to capture some 'wet' images outdoors.

Liking these sunny languid afternoons. 
Knitting my first cardigan using cascade ultra pima cotton.

On awakening this morning, these natural colors behind glass caught my eye. Rose cuttings are standing in water, while I wait hopefully for signs of new growth.
