THE WEATHER HAS BEEN DIVINE since i got home on the 29th. It's been hot enough to put the cooler on a couple of times but mornings are cool and breezy, perfect for my walk and some tidying up outside. The birdlife is lively, lots of young ones with parents in the garden, the willie wagtails have a fledgling or two, so the kingfishers and kookaburras are relentlessly badgered and chased off for just sitting quietly in a tree. they make me laugh
Kangaroos are around, four large ones the other night and last night i awoke at 1.30 thinking it was morning thanks to the sensor light thru a gap in the curtains. i looked out to see the very large powerful male kangaroo grazing outside the window. he could obviously smell me as he stood up and sniffed the air in all directions. i went back to bed feeling as though i had a bodyguard :0)
The goanna has also been strolling around the yard but i haven't caught him on film either.
It's been cloudy so sunsets have been amazing every night. i'm working on my book, doing versions of a night sky to use as endpapers. and working out the faces of romeo and juliet, that'll be a good start.
|the willie wagtail is so agile, it just darts out of reach so quickly.|
