Classic FM , cup of tea and a book.


This our favourite spot for doing a bit of relaxation, taken at midday. It's particularly pleasant in the early morning when the sun filters through the lattice on the right. The mornings have been fresh lately with autumn temperatures of 25-26 deg. high and low of 12-14 degrees. You might think we are a bit spoilt in the Sunshine State but we don't get the distinctive change of seasons that other latitudes get. I must confess to a craving for colder climates which is satisfied by a trip to Melbourne in August each year.

Love this corner of your house. Very beautiful, charming and restful place to sit and to read a book with a cup of coffee! Also a ideal place to sit and relax.

And thank you so much Roy for your visiting and nice comment about my landscape.

I hope I can create a spot very much like that some day. It looks so cool and relaxing.

This is bliss to me! Who needs to go anywhere? I am visiting for the first time after you kindly visited me. It must be nice to take a trip to Melbourne when craving colder climates! I don't want to think of colder climates right now--we are beginning to enjoy spring in New England.

Beleive me if you lived inWales (uk) you would not want to be in the cold. We have such a short period of warm sunny days. Outside your house looks so amazing, I would just sit there in a chair, relax and do nothing everday, bliss. I certainly wouldn't be on the computer, or have a blog!!

Dear Roy, a lovely little environment, perhaps a few extra orchids would be nice- they are flowering at the moment with a lot of flower shows. I am looking forward to the Gardening Australia expo at the RNA showgrounds on May 21. I am also developing a bryophyte terrarium- I like microcosms. Keep up the amphibian work, and peace be with you.

What a beautiful spot you've created here. Very peaceful and pretty. I love the tropical plants of QLD.
