A peachick + a flame tree + pavlova = a great New Year’s day

on January 9, 2014


It was so funny watching the interaction between Anthony and my ever-curious little peahen, Gutsy9. But Anthony was much more interested in his glorious flame tree….


And my mother’s pavlova!

    Love the dessert photo. His fingers are shiny – looks like he licked them. I don’t blame him! 🙂

  3. Dear Gutsy9, such hard competition 😉

  4. I love the photo where Anthony and Gutsy9 look as though they are having a chat! 🙂

  5. Those pictures of Gutsy… staring at Anthony until he pecked at him and got his attention…. were adorable… Diane

    Julie, These are some wonderful pictures, thank you for sharing them. It was kinda neat how Gutsy just walked up and gave Ants a little peacock kiss. Have great day. Bill

    I have never seen a flame tree….a fitting name for sure, so very vivid and beautiful. Those are good photos to be cherished, indeed. I’ll have a bite of that last photo with my cuppa. 🙂 xo

  9. Gutsy-9 has such personality, love her!!! Who would have thought that a peahen’s character would come through so vibrantly in a picture. Your flame tree is magnificent and that Pavlova looks so very tasty. What a fantastic day. 😀

  10. A terrific photo-story.

  11. Love these photos. Anthony looks good! My eye caught the clothesline…I live in an apartment so I don’t have one, truth is most people in houses around here don’t have one either. I miss clotheslines, I much prefer to hang laundry out than put it in a dryer…ahh I’m remembering fresh, crisp sheets on my childhood bed…

    I love, love, LOVE all these things! The curiosity of Gutsy9, the gorgeous flame tree and that lovely dessert that I’ve never heard of before but which looks divine.

    I like how birds animals etc. bring people into the moment such as the photo with Gutsy and Anthony.. dessert looks yummy.and I have never seen a flame tree nor do we have palms (is that correct? ( the one to the left of the flame tree?)

    I go for the Pavlova too.

  15. Love the expressions on G9’s face trying to get Ant’s attention. That’s one beautiful piece of property you live on. Yummy looking dessert.
