View from scullery window which is south facing.

Sounds posh doesn't it, having a scullery. I looked it up in the dictonary. It says it is a chiefly British word for a small room where washing-up and other kitchen work is done. That's exactly what this is.

It's not bad being a scullery maid in this spot, there is a nice assortment of trees to look at. A tree fern, a tallish tree known as a native frangipani that is adorned with lichen and gets yellow and cream flowers, a holly bush and some sort of flax that shoots up a tall brown flower spike every now and then. And of course is a popular spot with the parrots.

It's also Monday so a mosiac.

Romans 12:16 (New International Version)
Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.


  1. And again ... a few of my favourite things. Would love to see the native frangipani when it flowers: put that on your list please Jeeves!

    If I am right, that is not a parrot but a Crimson Rosella. I will put my money where my mouth is, post this, then go check it out.

  2. Oh dear: they are ALL parrots.

    Rosella, Parakeet, Parrotlet, Lory, Macaw, Cockatoo, Cockatiel, Lovebird, Corella ...

  3. Yes it is a Crimson Rosella and yes they are all parrots.

    I guess I wrote parrots because the Rosellas are not the only parrots that like the spot. King Parrots and sometimes Galahs and Cockatoos pop by too. But mostly Rosellas.

  4. I will post a picture of the flowers when they happen, they are quite high up so not easy to reach for a good shot, that's why they didn't appear in the blog when they were last in view. They are nice but not at all like the real frangipani, so I don't really understand why it is called such.
