My goodness, I made it for another week. Feeling particularly testy last week I grabbed my camera and went outside for a walk. A bank of storms had built up and fortunately this one passed us by. What ticks me off about this picture is I missed seeing the eagle up in the clouds.
This used to be 22 metres ( 72 feet ) of Iron Bark tree. It began to die off a couple of years ago leaving a couple of large, dead branches way up top. Every time I went near it I thought of why they call these trees, Widow Makers. Lorelle’s Uncle cuts and sells firewood for charity. I may be many things but I’m not stupid and know when to call the professionals. It didn’t take too long after it fell to cut and stack into the trailer. I kept the bark, it goes through the chipper for the garden beds. Whatever small ends of timber were left I kept for next winter.
This Roo looks like I feel most mornings. I snapped him on the way to put the rubbish out. He was stretched out having an early morning kip, stood up when he saw the car and gave me that look. I like the way the sunlight reflects off his hair.
The friendly King Parrot is back. I went out to the shed to get something and he and a friend flew to the veranda, hung onto the screen door and began squawking. Silly me, the bird feeder was empty. After grabbing the camera Lorelle came out to talk to them. She picked up the hiking stick and he flew onto it.
I went into the shed to get some seed and guess who followed me inside? Cheeky little buggers. This link will take you to my FB album for the other shots, you don’t need to be on FB to view it. Parrot Pics.
Well that’s your lot for another week, I do hope you’ve enjoyed my offerings. Stop by next week, there’s always something to see at the Writer’s Room.
