Some Photos from Our Garden etc

I've mentioned in an earlier blog entry that our house is on a very steep slope. Our block is on three different levels and our verandah is quite high above our neighbours below, which gives us lots of privacy. Also earlier I mentioned how terribly overgrown the garden has become as a consequence of the permanent injury to my shoulder added to long-term problems with my back and knee. Sigh! But I LOVE the birds that come and visit us - it's almost like we live in a tree-house because the back verandah is amongst the branches of a large tree.

I was up at sunrise one morning and took a few photos as the sun shone its lovely winter rays into our yard.

of our yard from the middle section.

This is one of my favourite spots in the garden.
I can usually get a nice bit of shade, have
a little rest and watch the lovely birds.

And here are a couple of flowers I spotted in the garden the same morning:

Narcissus aka Jonquil aka Daffodil
