Bird of Paradise:Katie cat: Doug's bike and road works

My succulents, that are growing in hollow logs on the front verandah are thriving, despite frosty mornings; and our newly planted lemon-scented gums have quaint frost protection 'hats' in place.

Meanwhile, Katie and I have been spending a lot of time in the sun room painting five different Bird of Paradise flower impressions. As Katie picks her way through and around plates of paint, I hold my breath! 

Thrift – in its true sense – comes easily to Doug. He enjoys recycling, taking pride in fixing up and then 

reusing various bits of reclaimed treasure. His old bike is an example, with its milk crate basket ideal for carrying home groceries. He doesn't care how it looks! 

Work has begun to rip up and then redo the guttering along our road. It's a Flood Recovery Project, the result of the February 2012 floods that devastated Mitchell.

As we will be in transit next week I will not do a

blog. The following week will reveal more.
