I am currently in Brisbane listening to a murder of Crows. They are constant and persistent and a little ominous. So is the sunshine and perfect weather. It is 22 degrees, and it's clear and very bright.
My sleepy eyes have been burnt with the riotous colour of the plants. They remind me of my Grandma and her wonderful tropical garden. Golden bamboo and these various yellow crotons. I know they do grow in Melbourne too, but here they are everywhere, and perhaps it's the air that is also making me nostalgic. The colours aren't really done justice here either, just some quick pictures taken on a lunchtime walk through the botanic gardens to get me some vitamin D.
