Embarrassment in front of my home

Today, I had a major embarrassment.  My guests arrived and parked their car in the driveway in front of the house. We went inside and had a lovely morning tea and conversation.

After a while I went outside to make sure my garden wasn’t suffering in the heat of the day. Whilst outside I noticed some unusual activity. I snuck inside and grabbed my camera just to make sure what I saw was actually happening right there, in front of my eyes.

How do you tell your guests that there is someone having sex on their car, right in the driveway right in front of my house?

One day at the seed bowl

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pairs

There used to live in my street a number of people, who have since moved on, who used to put out bird seed mainly for the parrots. Since then I have a pair of King Parrots who come to the trees around the house and whistle. I don’t like to feed the birds but I have a bowl of seed I put out every now and then for this pair of King Parrots.

They are a couple and it is thought that they mate for life, that is why there is nearly always a pair of King Parrots in my garden.

He always lets her eat first when they arrive on the verandah together. Keeping a wary eye on me.
