Today in Melbourne it’s hot, hot, hot. I’ve been hiding inside and enjoying visiting lovely blogs featuring snow, grey skies and holly. Well, we don’t have snow for the holiday season in Melbourne (but with Melbourne weather you can never be 100% certain), and there isn’t much real holly around either. Although I have spotted the odd bush in old gardens.
We’re not missing out on the traditional red and green colors though. I just love these Kangaroo paws in my garden, such festive colours. I don’t know who came up with the name Kangaroo paws, but it’s very clever. Can you see the little paws?
Speaking of things with paws, poor Ruby has found this hot weather very uncomfortable. It’s been too hot to take her for long walks, so at times she gets very restless. My younger son thought he’d dress her in reindeer ears last night which she very much enjoyed. She shook them off, grabbed them in her mouth, soared over the sofa back and raced around the house with them. Finally when she tired out, I managed to take some photographs, which she found a bit of a yawn really.
