A bunch more photos taken during the year that needed blogging..
One of Kit's brown frogs. She had two or three of them that she'd had for years, and they died almost at the same time, she has no idea why..
Teeny teeny bug at the Christmas party last week
Yeah so spring is nearly over. And I've been accumulating photos to post for months, because I'm a slacker. Here's a bunch of photos celebrating spring.
Pelicans come inland to breed. I couldn't see this one's partner though.
Dad always called these things swanlings. Because he was weird. And I call them that too. Because I'm weird.
Dad always called these things ducklets. Because he was weird. And I call them that too. Because I'm weird.
After our Queensland trip I started bringing my lunch into work most days so I could control my sodium intake. But that left me with the problem of not getting out and about for a bit of a walk. So for quite a while, Aquila and I were doing Ingress missions to get some exercise. We ran out of local missions though, so that's fallen by the wayside a little (and me being off sick for a week certainly didn't help).
This was taken on one of the mission days.
Same day, different spot
Pictures of daffodils never get old
Saw these mystery flowers on a walk one morning. No idea what they are. Cause I'm dumb.
More mystery flowers. These things are from bulbs and pop up in our yard every spring. No idea what they are. Cause I'm dumb.
Usually we associate storms with summer, but we've had more than our fair share of thunderstorms this spring
Sunflower seedling. It's quite a bit bigger than that now.
These things only flower for like a *day*, but the plant keeps on pumping out new flowers for several weeks. They're weeds around our yard, but I can't bring myself to pull them out.
Can you believe these photos are taken on a *phone* ???
I'm pretty sure I've never seen these flowers in our yard before this year, so no idea where they came from. Or what they are. Cause I'm dumb.
I do like azaleas but I think they take too much water and as such have no place in Canberra.
Irises in our yard
Mini wombok grown from seed. Hoping I get to eat it before the bugs do.
The poppies are still coming
Oh, there you go. Done.
I've had this plant since I was a teenager. The original plant has probably been in the family for much longer. When I was in uni I used to do a lot more gardening, and evicted this plant to a rock crevice next to my garden, since ribbon grass has a habit of taking over as much space as you give it. I never thought it would survive, but survive it did for twenty odd years. It's still there last I looked. Before mum went and sold the house. hrmm. Anyway, a few years back I took an offshoot of it. They don't grow very well in Canberra (too cold for them) but they do well enough inside. So I have several now, because it's very happy and keeps sending off new shoots.
Ribbon grass flowers only last a day
And this is a salad I got from the farmer's markets in Bungendore a while back. The tomato I added, but it had fun things in it like nasturtiums and flowers. It was a fun, tasty little salad.
I must have looked at them funny..
We have these gorgeous bean plants growing. Unfortunately they're completely sterile (grown from leftovers of the original crop) and not a single bean on the plants :( So not taking any care of them, but they're still growing like crazy..
Even had some eastern rosellas down
These things look pretty impressive but aren't hot. Grew these myself and used them in a stir fry the other night
It be autumn around here..
And one solitary crysanthemum plant did its best for Mother's Day..
