One of the wonderful things about visiting my parent's farm is being able to see 360 degrees. There are no trees obscuring the view like where I live in Victoria. On a clear night you can see millions of stars and tonight I went outside to get a star fix. I could see the Southern Cross, the Two Pointers, the Seven Sisters and the Saucepan. There were stars near and far, some twinkling and some blazing, such a magical night sky with the Milky Way clearly able to be seen. No light pollution out here.
Last night I stepped outside to take some photos of this sunset.
Allow me to introduce you to Hector and
These two gorgeous farm cats (pets) were very hot and flaked out on the pavers trying to get cool. It was nearly dark so I used the flash to get decent photos of them. Hector or Hecky as he is called is timid and not too keen on strangers getting close. Humphrey is a sook and will take all the attention you give him. He is quite happy to sit in the wheelbarrow and go for a ride up to the wood heap which is rather cute.
Today has been another hot day of 38C with a cool change tomorrow and a temperature of 36C expected. :) Two degrees make all the difference I can assure you.
