Another typical perfect winter's day in Far North Queensland - this morning we awoke to a valley full of soft white mist which soon disappeared and now the skies are clear blue and cloudless, with a forecast temperature of 26 deg C. Last night was a (for us!) chilly 13 deg C.
This is the time of the year when the beautiful Flame of the Forest is in full bloom on the rainforest trees around the gardens. It is a vine which produces lovely bracts of waxy flowers - and the Honeyeaters and Lorikeets go wild for it's nectar.
After a little recent rain the grass is a lush green and Peter will soon be mowing again - quite unusual for this time of year when it is normally getting very dry and the grass doesn't grow much!
