She has to pick up some heavy duty medication tomorrow and when she read out the side effects of the drugs to me I said it would be better to have the symptoms rather than the cure :-) I am not big on taking medication but I know that it has its place combined with nutrition and also prayer that I AM big on and before I forget ... thank you to everyone who prayed for my friend Barb after her hubby's accident as he is improving and a discharge date doesn't look all that far away. Also my friend's grandson who was so gravely ill in intensive care is now home and is recuperating in familiar surroundings. So a big thank you to you all!

Back to the Grave's Disease issue....I am keen to learn what foods are best to eat with this illness and there is a lot of of information online but if anyone has had experience of dealing with this I would appreciate some input as I want to her as much as I can and she doesn't cook much. Thanks.
Anyway, after a bad news week and the second heatwave in as many weeks something cheered me up no end this morning. I was in the front garden looking under the plants for an egg which one of the chooks laid there and I saw a Blue Banded Bee. I never even knew these existed until I read about them on Meg's A Hopeful Nature. I actually had my camera with me and tried to take a photo.
However, these bees don't stop on any flower for very long and it was impossible to get a photo and the only other solitary bee I saw was just this one which I presume is a European honey bee. It wasn't half as pretty as the Blue Banded Bee. If you click on the link and are a photography expert please tell me how those photos were taken.
Obviously I need to get out more as seeing that bee made my day. I mentioned in my last post that we have rosellas growing so I checked them out this morning as Jane mentioned that the dried flowers made a nice tea and to be honest, I had never seen a rosella flower. So I was very surprised to come across one this morning and they are very pretty.
They are a soft pink and white and the petals look very delicate.....
....which remind me of a....
...ballerina's tutu. Absolutely beautiful.
Oh, before I go .... if my Northern Hemisphere readers would like to be frightened out of their wits take a look at the visitor Selina had the other night. Now if you are planning a visit to Australia in the near future do keep in mind that this isn't a frequent visitor in the majority of homes here. Mind you, if I found one in my house I would leave home quick smart :-)
Have a lovely weekend!
