You could have joined us on a walk around the block. Up the end of our road is a small lake and playground with this walking/cycling track. In the weekends, you'll find lots of children with parents in tow, learning to ride bikes.
Lots of little delights along the way.
Opened up, don't those toadstools look like flowers?
I see the Wattle has started flowering. Not good if pollen doesn't agree with you but what a magnificent yellow these ones are.
I just love seeing the different coloured Grevilleas. It's not uncommon to find the native parrots feeding on the nectar.
Banksia, another native with it's glorious orangy red flowers.
And how about some dragon hunting? These water dragons are not pretty but I get excited when I spot one catching a few rays.
This is up the road from the supermarket, right in the middle of town. It's a catchment area and a good spot to look for the dragons.
Or trolleys. Dumpers peeve me off, spoiling the environment.
It's a bread making kinda day and we've been fans of the Masterchef series on the telly. I made up this recipe from the show. Schiacciatta con l'uva, a flat bread studded with grapes, drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with raw sugar and eaten warm. It was as yummy as it sounds. Dangerously yummy!
The other half of the dough was used to make a pizza for tea. We're not big fans of pizza but this was another one from the show. Pizza Margharitta. Homemade tomato sauce, basil, semi sundried tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella. I'd definitely make this again. Maybe pizza's not too bad after all.
