Back home again.

I'm back home again but haven't been on the blog for a few days, I so far behind I will start from here, my little furball was not talking when I came home, this is a catty way of ignoring you I think.
Big big storm the day after I arrived.

Tried to get pictures but only got foggy windows.





But you get the idea, and afterwards so so humid.  
This is my sister back yard so different to mine very neat tidy, I have always loved the stone wall, it looked wonderful in the storm just like a waterfall.
The guest staying area, three bedrooms a bathroom and a sitting room all very nice .






But the wall is the best part of the whole house.
I will  take you for a wander, lots of cool areas but needed as it does get very hot.









My sister cutting flowers for the house, a few gardineras well that's not spelt right but you know what I mean those white flowers that smell great.







There is a wombat that often makes a mess here but I didn't see him just the disturbed bark.










And  a few clouds and sunsets to finish up with.












Bye for now, will try and catch up with all my reading but if I miss you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

  2. Stunning sunset photos! The sitting area where you stayed looks cool and comfortable.
    Your sisters garden is lovely, I like all the large crotons she has there.
    Gardenias are lovely, but too many too close is a bit hard on my sinuses.

    1. Cats are funny things, they take no notice of you until you are not there any more then they get funny about your return.

    1. Thank you I missed you all too, didn't take the computer with me.
      Think they had it built as the house next door is set higher than theirs, it's a hilly area.

    1. I very much in awe of the gardenia as mine all die very quickly, a lot grow around here so it's not the soil, and the stone wall is just wonderful.
