I may not have access to the wildlife/birds that I had when I lived at Moodlu nearly four years ago, but I am still blessed that mature flowering trees entice the birdlife in for a feed.st over my back fence, are a Euodia (rain forest tree);
a Poinciana, which due to incessant rains has lost its blossoms, and an African Tulip tree (Spathodea "something")
The birds love their blossoms and their nectar,
As the Euodia is in bloom, the Rainbow Lorikeets have vacated the Tulip tree (the canopies of the three trees intertwine) to allow the Galahs and Corellas to dine in peace.

I was awoken this morning by a thunder storm! More rain!
As the weather bureau issued a severe weather and high tide warning for south-east Queensland coastal areas,I thought I might get some good pictures.
With the dams having controlled releases there is yet more flood debris making it's way into Moreton Bay, so much so, that even the most dedicated kite surfers were sitting on the lawns at Margate Beach, rather than risking life & limb.
One of my favourite walkways was covered in light debris that had been blown over the sea wall:sea weed and plant material made the concrete pathway a tad slippery.
Anyway, no really spectacular shots I'm afraid, but I thought you might like to see the Bay when it is not so pretty.
Anyway I ENJOYED my walk, and certainly a few cobwebs got blown away!

My idea for "Firestorm" started taking shape way back in February 2010 after the devastating summer fires swept through Australia's southern states.
However volunteering at TAFE, joining in Postmark'dArt Round 11 swaps, and completing an embroidered cushion cover for my friend Lottie, put the project on the back burner for a few months
One of my New Year Resolutions was to at least complete the Unfinished Project as soon as possible.
It is with great satisfaction I can now say......"Firestorm" is as complete as it will ever be!
Now........I wonder what can be done with "mud and flooding rains"?
