Go green!




For my birthday today I can't think of a better gift from Australia than a flock of rainbow lorikeets screeching around. They're so much fun to watch! They're so cheeky and noisy, and colourful and attractive that they're sure to bring a smile on your face. I love them !

Pour mon anniversaire aujourd'hui, je ne peux rêver plus beau cadeau de la part de l'Australie que les Loriquets arc-en-ciel qui piaillent toujours à tu-tête dans le quartier. Ils sont si incroyablement beaux et colorés ! En plus ils sont bavards, bruyants et délurés, vraiment amusants à regarder. De quoi vous mettre de bonne humeur pour toute la journée !

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

The little green birds are gorgeous! I did read somewhere that a lot of these birds are illegally imported by US for exotic pet collectors. What a selfish thing to do.

Love the pictures!!

Je te souhais un joyeux anniversaire - marrant,içi il n'est pas encore commencé!

And lucky me, again I find a riot of colour in Sydney, neatly sidestepping the down tones of yesterday. Coincidentally, my post tonight is also totally about colour. Je te l'offre comme cadeau...

Bon anniversaire Nathalie ! Avec le décalage horaire je me demande quand tu considères que tu as vraiment un an de plus
Je suis née au Vietnam et là bas tout le monde a un an de plus lors du nouvel an Ca simplifie... mais c'est moins personnalisé bien sûr !

Happy birthday Nathalie!! Hope this coming year brings you much happines, laughter, joy, fun, sunshine and lots of love.
Those birds are simply BEAUTIFUL. We don't have any exotic birds here. We mostly have sparrows and pigeons (I am not a fan of those). When I was a kid I always saw pigeons and sparrows together so I thought that pigeons must be the mothers and sparrows their children. Secretly, I still beleive that. Have a great day!

Mais ce sont les petits cousins de mon perroquet de l'autre jour! Je me souviens de notre surprise lorsque nous avons vu un nuage de loriquets se poser sur les arbres d'un camping, un de nos premiers soirs en Australie. Compagnie bruyante mais de bonne humeur effectivement. Bon anniversaire!

Happy Birthday! Those are spectacular birds! I didn't realize they were birds at first. I thought they were flowers tossed on the ground. How lucky you are! Thank you for sharing your birthday gift. Enjoy ; )
