Rainy park walk today.

Crime scene tape up and road still closed near the pool and Bowlo. So had a bit of a detour on the walk.

Photo of road closure from other end. Just yellow signs and witches hats. No obvious police presence apart from the crime scene tape.

Few people out on a rainy Saturday morning. The cockies were out though, foraging on the grass under one of the hoop pines. Not looking as carefree and raucous in the wet.

Video of several sulphur-crested cockatoos foraging on the park lawns under a tree on a rainy day. Sound is the wind, a few bird chirps (not the cockies) and a bit of rainy day sounds (rain, traffic going on wet road out of shot).

Wandering around backstreet Ultimo and wondering what this type of tree is. Not a eucalypt, I think? Or is it? #Sydney

@timrichards plant id app is saying it's likely a melaleuca. It's not always right though.

@melissabeartrix makes me think of Canberra. It's the vibe.

Sun came out occasionally during my walk.

Had a dentist appointment first thing (just a check and clean) so a bit later than usual on my walk. Good news was nothing bad happening with the toothy-pegs - always a relief.

Gossip on the street was that the local post office (in the newsagent) is going to be forced to close in May. Australia post is closing its less profitable agencies.

Sucks big time because it's a hub for the local community - lots of folks do all their banking there and all the businesses around do their banking there too. Really convenient and the lady who runs it is lovely.

Hoping we can lobby to save it. But so hard with these sorts of corporate decisions.

Noticed a bunya cone had fallen to the ground. Looked like a bird had a peck. Nuts to be good tucker for people too. Not sure how they're prepared.

Cricket at the local park. Nice to see girls on the team and a girl bowling too.

This rose may look a tad the worse for wear but had the most divine scent.

@melissabeartrix that's such a lovely report card. And it still rings true. Would frame it and put it where you can see it every day. 🌸

Gloomy looking day but only a mist of rain and heading for 29C max. So still walking the park.

Paused to admire the roses in the park.

My Aunty just rang me, worried a painful rash on her arm was shingles. She wanted me to consult google it, so i did and read out the symptoms on a couple of health info sites.

Then i thought to ask her - have you ever had chickenpox?

Nope! So can't be shingles.

If it's that level of painful, suggested she get it seen to though. So she's going to try her local GP Access After Hours number.

@mativity thanks. hoping she'll see someone who can tell her what it is. Was concerned that it was so painful, considering it first cropped up on Thursday. Chemist thought it waa an allergic reaction to a bite so she's been taking antihistamines.

@psychopoesie@aus.social avatar

@mativity @kauer yes, of course.

@mativity @kauer @melissabeartrix had chicken pox once as a kid. Not a fan. And would like to avoid shingles if possible - not eligible for a free vaccine for ages though. Mum just had the first needle of the new shingles vaccine which is meant to be more effective.

Another day to keep on the shadier paths. Predicted top of 43C and it was over 30C when i set out before 9am. Felt cool in the park with a lovely breeze and some intermittent cloud cover.

Noticed these amazing red flowers on my walk through the park. Called the firewheel tree according to plant id app, mostly growing in rainforests further north (northern NSW up).

Photo of the firewheel tree which is mostly green with a few splotches of orange where the flowers cluster. The tree's 4 metres high with 2 skinny grey trunks.

@melissabeartrix SD sounds like a total waste of space - except that there's you in the world. 🌸🌸🌸
