When I finally dragged my pathetic self out of bed this morning and staggered my way to the kitchen for coffee, I was greeted by four cheery Crimson Rosellas in the grevillea right outside the kitchen window.
Usually the grevillea is Spinebill country and I love those little guys, but the rosellas were a nice wake up and they were happy to stay there chomping flowers until I got my camera and took a few photos so I could share them with you.
The thing I was most impressed with once I looked at the photos was that my kitchen windows were clean enough that the photos worked through them 😉
How nice was this. We are taking mum out for lunch on Saturday as part of her mothers day present so the Man of the House and I took a drive down there to book the table.
On our way out the door I walked past one of the ladies who worked there as she was arranging a flower display. She smiled at me, then asked if I would like a bunch of flowers. Of course I would! She handed one to me and said they had just had a new delivery and the old ones were still too beautiful to throw out.
Such a lovely gesture made my day and I thought I would share them with you all too. Thank you unknown lady! 🙂
An added bonus was that it gave me a chance to tease the Man. He had walked ahead to the car as I was perusing the goods in the shop. Once I caught up with him he looked quizzically at the expensive flowers as if to ask how much they cost.
I said, ‘don’t worry. I didn’t pay for them, some really hot guy just gave them to me.’ For just a minute there he was not sure if I was serious or not. Unfortunately I cracked up, spoiling the illusion. 😉
