in melbourne after arriving at tulla at midday, a couple of movies in the afternoon, dinner with sunny and luke and a good big sleep.
fantastic mass planting on the median strip in wellington street

down to torquay to stay with gail. we spent the most deliciously relaxing day having a 3 hour hammam at the jan juc racv club, floating in warm water, lying on a heated slab and sauna, lying in a bubbling spa.  how much can a koala bear

brunch with susan and jenny down at the torquay foreshore.  a good catch up time for us sisters :0)
in the evening a dinner for many birthdays at anne and den's, mine belatedly, freddie's (early), deidre and jenny.  lots of presents, talk, great food and drinks, candles, a lovely night seeing my dear friends and family

I did a drive 
past susan and seans, it's looking great all gutted and ready to be done

this lovely shrike thrush is one of a pair madly feeding
babies inside helen's roof, we watched them all evening

FRIDAY a drive to helen and don's, a big country meal waiting :0) and a good evening of scrabble and family time.  always good
the garden is looking wonderful

in the morning, masses of lorikeets were deafening but beautiful

Helen's garden

a day of driving, couldn't wait to see the river. i could see no results of the terrible storm that trashed so many crops in mildura, all the vineyards looked terrific.  and as i approached wentworth, water everywhere.

                   flood levels are almost up to 1990 levels but
                     there's a long way to go before the 1956 height
                     and my house is still above that level
