A Favourite


We all have our favourites: teams, colours, friends, places, trees… The first bloom on this eucalyptus silver princess is my personal favourite in the natural domain.

There is pleasure to be had in watching blooms. But more so, this particular one, because it was the last gift my mother gave me before her earthly journey ended.

Homely Habitat

New Home For Bluey

The blue-tongued lizard has a new habitat–under my rockery. ‘Tis far more homely than lurking under rubbish bins. A step up, I suspect, in lizard lounging: popping out to sunbake, and when required, retreating rapidly at will. Such a homely habitat. Wouldn’t mind one like that myself.
