Bottlebrush and Friarbirds!

You know summer is on the way when the noisy friarbirds reappear in the garden! They are such funny-looking birds, but their calls are so weird they’re cute. They’re constantly chatting to each other.

This Bird!

I know young birds are supposed to be scruffy, but this is ridiculous! This poor currawong turned up in my garden recently, and is getting picked on by the bigger, older birds.

Today in Georgia

The mountains and river (our lunch table view!) around Vardzia, Georgia, with its cave city built into the cliff face, and nearby Khertvisi Fortress.

Monday in Tbilisi

Monday pictures from the capital of Georgia.

I’m a cat magnet, and this kitten on top of a mountain nearly came home with me! Such a big purrer! Then there was the random dog on the stairs up – followed by a random DUCK.

Tbilisi’s skyline shows the city’s history as a crossroads between Europe and Asia, with some Soviet architectural scars to boot. So many beautiful old buildings are falling to pieces.

And then there was the mountaintop Soviet-style entertainment!

Day One in Tbilisi

Some pictures from yesterday in Tbilisi, Georgia.

The traditional architecture (the first one is from our kitchen window), the Peace Bridge, the receipt from the supermarket – with all that Georgian writing!, and lunch. I’ve eaten a lot of great Georgian food in Ukraine, but eating it actually in Georgia was a first!
