Life Is More Fun Hanging Out With Mates

TwoMatesHangingOutAtTheSamePlace

What a sight. Two bees hanging out in the same gumnut bloom. It seems it’s not just humans who think life is more fun with a mate close by!

All Is Well

After a long dry summer, the rain finally thumped down. This morning the grass is resurgent green, and the gumnuts are popping their tops. All is well. It certainly feels that way out in the garden.

Dive In, Splash About, Enjoy. Be Creative

BlackbirdAfterBath

One of my favourite backyard visitors, a blackbird, plunges into the bird bath. The blackbird looks pleased, perched on the bath’s rim, feathers dripping. And so am I, with my new bird bath–a recycled gardening pot.

Sometimes joy can be as simple as watching the antics of a feathery friend diving in, splashing about, enjoying. And being creative is so much fun, especially making something new out of something old–something even tweeting visitors can delight in.
