I'M UNDER SIEGE!!

IT MUST BE THE TIME OF YEAR   Everything seems to be on the move. Not only the snake but a fox!  A young healthy fox was lounging on the lawn the other day and only looked at me and strolled away when i yelled and waved my arms at it.  Next day i saw it bounding across the lawn towards the birdbath, luckily the little honeyeaters took off fast. But it appeared again a day later so now i'm about to head off and pick up a cat cage, friend bob says he 'deal with it' when it's caught.

it seems so unfair that stupid colonists brought these beautiful animals out here where they wreak havoc on our wildlife.











Then yesterday i was heading out the back door with an armload of newspapers and bottles for the bin, and almost stood on a brown snake slithering past.   stuff went everywhere and i screamed and froze with my leg in the air, an accident waiting to happen. luckily i didn't miss the step and the snake took off under the house.

these are the little fellas that are at risk and i found a few feathers this morning. 










a new arrival in the garden - i've identified it as a striped honeyeater and it has a beautifully chirruppy song


funny how this little birdhouse hung
here for eight years before the little
wren family discovered it. now a lot
of other birds find it fascinating, this
one is a white plumed honeyeater



the echidna is out and about too, 
i've seen him twice this week


Beautiful moons this week





MY  PAVING is about to star
t, the pathway is ready and i've been cleaning bricks today.  i have a great pile that bob has collected around the property.  The weather is gorgeous, warm autumn days so perfect for sitting outside mindlessly chipping and scrubbing.
