I hope you had/are having a lovely weekend! here's another bird with minty green for you ☺

i had a bit of a shop update over the weekend and this print (and a couple of other new goodies) are now available.
all my prints come in four sizes: a5, a4, a3 and extra large (19" x 13") to suit lots of different spaces.

Male ruby-throated hummingbird from last september. i love the way a head tilt changes the look of those iridescent throat feathers. sometimes they look a dull black or gray instead of having that vibrant ruby shine.

The annual great backyard bird count, now in its 23rd year, is this weekend - february 14–17, 2020. during this popular citizen science event, people from all over the world head outdoors to count birds and the data are used by scientists to track the health of bird populations.

the great backyard bird count (gbbc) is a free, fun, and easy event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of bird populations. participants are asked to count birds for as little as 15 minutes (or as long as they wish) on one or more days of the four-day event and report their sightings online at birdcount.org. anyone can take part in the great backyard bird count, from beginning bird watchers to experts, and you can participate from your backyard, or anywhere in the world.

each checklist submitted during the gbbc helps researchers at the cornell lab of ornithology and the national audubon society learn more about how birds are doing, and how to protect them and the environment we share. last year, more than 160,000 participants submitted their bird observations online, creating the largest instantaneous snapshot of global bird populations ever recorded.#gbbc #greatbackyardbirdcount

Healthy crispy noodle garden salad with cashews.

home made lazy dressing.
- 2 tablespoons japanese mayonnaise or nice creamy mayonnaise - 1 tablespoons sour cream - 1 teaspoon sesame oil (if you don't like the taste, you don't have to added)
- 2-4 tablespoons sushi vinegar or your choice of vinegar (if you like more runny dressing, add more vinegar)
- pepper and salt - fresh grated garlic(if you added onions, i wouldn't add any garlic) or ginger(only juice) if you like.

all mix together and pour just before you serve. *** red beans are dried red kidney beans (for nachos 😁) and a melon!

Away from the garden this weekend visiting family and friends but luckily the recent rains make it easy to look after (thanks scott) ☺️

been a little quiet on here lately as yesterday i had to pass a milestone for my phd project which had consumed my brain for the past week. luckily it all went well and i’m on track to submit in a year!! yay!!
.
.
now that that’s over i’m getting so excited for my garden plans for autumn and winter. going to order in seeds very soon.... i’m craving fresh lettuce and salads so i think that’ll end up being the bulk of my order 🥰.

Pokemon day plushie photoshoot part 5 (conclusion tomorrow).
normal and fairy types.
🔘🧚🏼‍♀️.
eevee and sylveon.
🦊 & 🎀.
photo 1-2: eeveelutions in a mystic meadow.
photo 3: scene location - side of the house by neighbors driveway (he definitely judged me as he left the house).
sun was setting so i had to wrap things up at this point.
photo 4: oops.
story time: when i was going outside i tripped and didn’t notice torchic fell out of the basket so it got left out by mistake.
dragonite also got forgotten because i still thought it was at my cousin’s house. little buddy snuck it out of my bag after i put it away before leaving the super bowl party. apparently my mother brought it back this week but didn’t put it the basket with the other pokemon plushies.
(this is what i find out as i ask about the hair dryer). so these two will go outside tomorrow if it doesn’t rain.

Pokemon day plushie photoshoot part 2.
water types 💧🌊.
and ice type ❄️🧊.
squirtle, vaporeon, lapras, & glaceon.
🐢💧/🛥 - 🦊🌧/🌬.
photo 1-2: shores of the ‘river’.
photo 3: thinking about swimming (the wind hates me and blew lapras in while there was still trace amounts of water).
video (4): making the river.
photo 5: scene location - back of the house.
🏡.
story time: when i went to fill up the can in my house -
dad: are you going to water the pokemon to see if they’ll grow?
me: no i am making them a river habitat.
dad: right ..... (as i go back outside) wait, where?
me: the random patch of flagstone bits by the useless drainpipe.
dad: i don’t see how that’s going to work but don’t spill any water on the back stairs so someone can fall later.
-sometime later-
me: what happened to the hair dryer?
dad: do i look like i have enough hair to be concerned with where the hair dryer is? and why do you need it?
me: the wind hates me and lapras is damp but it needs to be dry.
dad: did someone fall in the ‘river’ and what’s a lapras?
me: no, the watering can. lapras is a water pokemon sometimes used as a ferry.
dad: so the water pokemon got wet.
me: i’m calling mom.

Almost time to turn the compost again. its amazing when you put the right stuff in, how fast it breaks down!⁠

which, if you don't want to or cant is okay- slow composts are perfectly good too :)⁠

excuse me while i work my lats⁠

As a yoga novice i find it hard enough without these interruptions. the doggos wanted to get involved, and then a big thunderstorm came. it rain so hard my gutters couldn’t cope. i had to move inside as everything got wet in the back yard. #yoga #yoganewbie #inmybackyard #thunderstorm #doggos

What can i say? only a mother could love my mate scaly. i can see him almost every morning soaking in some warm sun from his little branch. he's not overly happy about being photographed! i had to take these photos with another camera which has a better zoom than this tablet. #mylife #throughmylens #lookingup #easternbeardeddragon #inmybackyard #australianlizard #nothappyatall #nikoncoolpixs8000 #loveaustralianwildlife

Yummy sweet peaches and fresh vegetables.

i will stew the peaches with cinnamon and vanilla🧡

comment 2 star 27 Yesterday

This shows how fresh vegetables can be.
just cut my grand courgette and in few seconds, so much moisture comes out from it.
so sweet and tasty.

all the vegetables should have great taste but those ones from the supermarket quite often have no taste. some of the vegetables are stored in the chiller for a few months or a whole year...😔

Giving my pumpkins a little helping hand. i'm always surprised when people don't realise there are male and female flowers for pumpkins, zucchini etc. here you see the female, then the male (albeit past his prime as it has closed again) and then myself playing cupid as this way i get more set fruit. (yes it's a fruit, think seeds). just thought i'd share as i've been watching this for days and here is my first hopeful pumpkin of the season if i wasn't too late. the flowers come and go so quickly, this morning this female was firmly shut and now by afternoon it's almost past. fingers crossed, i will know in a couple of days by if the little pumpkin behind the flower grows or shrivels and falls. good luck!
