Winter joys

We have had a lovely rainy week -nearly 55mls in the gauge since last Sunday -and the garden is showing the benefits.

 This is the first time my Bird of Paradise plant has had more than one flower on it at a time!

 The bottlebrush is just bursting out -and my resident Honey-eater is a regular guest.

 DH has made one batch of yummy cumquat marmalade already -but there are more to harvest.

 The Iris are in bloom in the back yard.

 So is the Happy Wanderer

Winter self-sown tomatoes have steadily cropped.

And I think my sourdough is benefitting from my new oven!
So it all looks pretty calm and peaceful, doesn't it? And sometimes it is!
