Are you looking at me?

Yesterday we had a sleepy bird and today I couldn't resist sharing the picture of this funny guy!

A hot hot hot post

The temperature here reached 38 Celsius (100.4F) yesterday and today promises more of the same...

[I posted this earlier than usual, in a hurry, because I have a medical appointment in Tulle...]

I found out that this is a colour without a realistic name. I couldn't find any peaches or salmon that corresponded to the actual colour that goes by either name. They're yellow or orange...

I quite like this delicate mix of orange, pink and white. It's calming, yet warm. The last picture of gorgeous flowers was snapped by our very own Lynn in her garden. Thank you, Lynn. [Enjoy the macarons, P!]

Showing off and some celebrations

This bird is really showing off his spectacular colours!

As for the celebrations, I forgot to post some cakes for Queen of Sheeba, Sleuth and our absent friend Maria T. We had a death in the family and my mind was elsewhere all last week. Today is another one of our friend's birthday, but she decided to postpone it until July 4 because of some bad memories associated with the actual date.

These cakes celebrate the June 24 trio's birthdays, better late than never! I chose a summer theme...

An intimate look at flowers

These beautiful, delicate flowers weren't captured by a regular camera... These are X-rays!
