Partially storm-damaged – but still pretty – flowers mid-week.

Wow. Something weird happened this week, and my half-done draft of this post went up days ago!

More or less back to proper spring weather here, apart from a freak storm that came rolling in over the mountains with over 100km an hour winds, lasted about ten minutes, and brought down trees everywhere. This year… record low temperatures for the months we were in Europe, and now record storms in Australia when it should be hot…

Wednesday evening in Canberra

Many have people have died for many terrible reasons this week. Here are a couple of things that haven’t been making many headlines:

Marriage of former nuns saddens Pope, says Vatican Deputy Secretary of State.

The best part was this quote:

‘Federica, 44, comes from Italy and Isabel, 40, comes from South America. They said they could have done what other nuns did and live together in a convent while hiding their relationship, but said this would have been “false”.’

In other words: there’re gay nuns everywhere!

And this little new piece of Putin propaganda:
