Blue tongue

(viewed 600 times)
I haven't seen a blue tongue lizard in my yard in about 5 years and never so
close to the back door. This is a good day. This also explains why I have no
snails even with all the rain we've been having, and of course, why there
are no snakes. YEAH!

Crawley things

(viewed 614 times)
Its been raining for several weeks now and we're all getting a bit over it.
sad isn't it considering we still don't have a full dam and we hated the
drought so much, but the mould is starting to grow on everything and I just
want to feel dry. Today's brief respite from the rain brought out this huge
slug and the beginning of the caterpillars.
The flowering zucchini is hopefully the beginning of my veggie garden doing
its thing.

native orchid

My native orchid is back! I only get to see these about every 3-5 years. The
current torrent of rain must have brought these out. They're about the size
of a finger nail. Very exciting!

cicada time

The first of the cicadas were singing a few days ago and they're shedding
their shells early. Makes for a beautiful time of the year!

Holiday 101- failed- Terrigal

(viewed 554 times)
Terrigal is a beautiful, slightly up market holiday destination just out of
Sydney. This was to be my first holiday in about 5 years but I only lasted 2
days. I have failed at Holiday 101:-(
It now seems that maybe I failed 'cause I was getting sick- looks like I
might have the mumps. Holidays are dangerous and I just am not doing it
