I love the Darwin light this time of year, bathed in deep grey clouds, colours become heavy and soaked. These photos were taken in the mornings blue hour after a night of pounding rain that left everything distinctly amphibious.
A new year has started, and in just one month Darwin and I will celebrate our first anniversary. I have a new job, the fourth since arriving here, and I have just moved house for the 17th time in the last 10 years. A little late, but happy new year to you all!

I went away just as the broccolis were perfect for picking. When I came back they were blushing with yellow flowers. I did a great job of forgetting about them. And then I forgot about them some more.
This is the result.
P.s The white flowers are rocket. I can never keep on top of rocket.

Straight from the vegie patch, I’m sure you can imagine what I did with these little guys…
…yes, I stuffed those lovely delicate flowers with rice, feta, anchovies and herbs, baked them in the oven with cherry tomatoes and olives and invited 7 friends to come eat them with me.

The smell of orange blossoms at our front gate meet me at the end of our street each evening, the fragrance stronger after a whole days sun, an intense and sweet welcome home.
Further down the garden path, these little friends greet me in the vegie patch… a fine way to end the day.
