Gilbert Snoozing the wet day away.

 

Here are a few shots of Gilbert the cat snoozing under the doona (some of you may know it as a quilt or coverlet) on our bed.

Happy New Year from Gilbert the Cat

Over Christmas and New Year most of us tend to overindulge, and this can be the unfortunate result.  The 7 stages of overindulgence as demonstrated by Gilbert.

Have a Happy New Year full of friends, fun, good health and happy memories!

My eyes are feeling a bit heavy.
I'm so full that I think I'll just have a little snooze.

“Matchstick” Bromeliads and Gilbert on his Sleeper in the Sun

Here are a few pictures of a clump of bromeliads in flower in my front garden.   They are known as “matchstick” bromeliads because of their flower structure with contrasting tips,  but their botanical name is ACHMEA GAMOSEPELA.  They are looking particularly colourful this year.  Some other bromeliads growing up a tree fern behind the front fence have been home to some frogs after rain.   Also a few of Gilbert the cat soaking up the sun on his railway sleeper, his favourite spot outdoors.
