When you planned to sit in the shade…

This hot afternoon. Only, the local magpie family decided a few days ago that the furniture was their new home, and now you can never use it!

Too Hot for Roses!

Work View

I am working outside this afternoon, under an umbrella, even though it is far too hot. This is what I am looking at from the table.

When 34 degrees is your “cold” day this Canberra summer, you know it’s a too-hot summer!

I will be in for a shock in less than a month, when I head to Italy and England from February through to March. As I’m sure people know, Europe is having record snow and crazy-cold temperatures.

Despite the news talking nonstop about Poland, Russia and Syria, 40 of the 65 people who have died so far were in Ukraine. However – and as usual – the word “Ukraine” never reaches the news.

Not really excited about going back into the high thirties in the coming days…

Sunny Afternoon

The view from my computer in Canberra this afternoon. I had to take it with my tablet, so it didn’t come out exactly as I expected.

Too hot for the flowers

They didn’t even get to look nice before this happened. Canberra is having a bit of a heatwave. We’re ranging anywhere between 30 and 40 every day, which is a pain when you live away from the coast and it’s so dry so often!

Summer Flowers

First shot of the year. However,  I’m hoping for a good sunset this evening, because the sky has clouded over a bit.
