    Forget reality TV and Grey’s Anatomy – there’s a storyline developing in your front yard, Mate. I’ll stay tuned. And that joey speaks for all us blokes, doesn’t he?

      Yeah Mate, we don’t need reality TV for entertainment. The big bloke took it on the chin alright and left with style. Or did you mean the one being comforted?

        You have to just walk away with a smile. Strangely enough, no matter how excited the male roo/wallaby when the female rejects him he moves on. There’s many a bloke who could learn from that.

        They forget about the rejection and mosey over to the next candidate. Forgetting stuff, mate I’m a champion lately. I made an appointment for the dentist last week, put it in my phone then couldn’t find it. I rang them today and the receptionist had a laugh when I told her. I said I think it was next week and she said perhaps we should go forward a year and check too.

    What an amazing place you have!! So beautiful🙂 Love the baby roos, as you know. Do they ever venture close to you while you are on the porch or do they stay away? Just curious… Have a nice Wednesday…Still Tuesday here – we’ll make it there soon enough. Ciao, L

      Thanks L. It is beautiful even more so when it rains, maybe soon. The closest they come is about 6 feet. I don’t want them getting too familiar as they are wild animals. The joey near the little castle was about 7 feet away. They don’t venture too close, especially when I’m naked.😉
      Love. L.

    Ohhhhhh how fabulous. The joey is so adorable:) I don’t think I will ever get used to the idea that they are on YOUR FRONT LAWN or in your BACK YARD. That is just so cool:) These are wonderful photographs. They are so expressive. I love them. Thank you. Hi to your wife:)

      Thanks Gigi, they are fabulous. They come with an added bonus, they fertilise the lawn too. Front lawn, back yard under the picnic table, looking through the windows, they aren’t shy.🙂 Lorelle says Hi back at you.

        That is always a problem with animals. As the snow keeps melting, I find that the raccoons, skunks, possums, etc, have left their calling cards. Yuk. It’s raining and that should take wash away more of the snow. I think it’s 40 degrees already, which is the high for the day, well maybe a bit higher. So that’s nice, since it’s 7 a.m. I love your pictures. The faces of the kangaroos are so wonderful and, judging from their posturing, it looks as if they have attitude:)

        The good thing with roo poo, if it’s really dry the wind blows it away. If it’s wet it breaks down very quickly. Right now it’s kinda blowing around. The faces are nice, attitude indeed, those little guys stare right at you. I like to watch them when they lay under the trees across from the house. There’s grooming, a bit of discipline on the young uns, a little dating or attempts at least.

      They do Natalie, there’s a little touch of green pick for them on the lawn. I think they also like the fact they have a safe place with short grass and plenty of shade. I’m sat answering this in the lounge room and there’s a mum and joey a few feet away from the front door. We don’t have a dog so they have nothing to fear. I’m glad you like my photos. I enjoy sharing our touch of paradise with the world.🙂

    I think they have found a friend in you. Soon they will be knocking at your door, or possibly it might be me on the other side of the door. Beautiful shots, I wish my eye lashes were that long. :o)

      I’ll have to post a couple of pics of them on the back veranda Sorella, they’re not great but they’ll let you know how much they take the place for granted. Yeah they have beautiful eyelashes and eyes.

        I want so bad to leave my workplace and do something else. I am studying so hope something comes of that. Of course I need to pull my finger out and get my book written. Maybe that will become a best seller. lol

      Thanks fellers, yes many a chilled wine has been consumed late in the afternoon, storms observed going over the hills, wallabies and kangaroos spied on as they interact. Yes, it is a popular place.
