AFTER I ARRIVED HOME from the south, i got sick - picked up from Etta no doubt because she's coming home from daycare with bugs and wogs as all kids do when they start kinder, daycare etc. so i had to have a covid test and self isolate for three days waiting for the result, negative thank goodness. if i'd been positive it would have been a tracking nightmare to trace where i'd been over the past two weeks. all over the Bellarine Peninsula, Torquay, Geelong and Melbourne, the Grampians and a stay in Wedderburn on the way home. Eating in pubs and restaurants every day and visiting big op shops everywhere. Yikes!
good old bob borrowed this nifty little machine from sue and derek and spread the whole large truckload of soil i bought. i now have large new garden areas to plant and i've bought a lot of eremophilas and transplanted a lot of things i already had in pots.
Walking back yesterday from the newsagent - first time since i've gotten over my yucky cold, the two lovely black swans at the lock were going through an extreme preening exercise. They would vigorously run their beaks through the feathers on their backs and wings then duck dive, coming up to stretch and beat their wings in a circular movement, propelling themselves through the water before going through the whole procedure again.

THE GREAT EGRET has returned to fish from the fallen trees on my riverbank, it's there morning and night but always very hard to photograph, i've managed to creep up on it twice this week

we've had beautiful moons for days now
more visits from the echidna, he hides from
me by putting his head under the chair :0)
DOGS IN UTES one of the things i love
about living here
SPRINKLERS AND BIRDBATHS the perfect combination for birds to have fun
I've been working a lot in this central garden, installing a new birdbath that's already really popular
