My fossils

Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Fossil

I found these on my place many years ago and have featured them in previous posts. On the left is a hand axe and on the right hand side, the sharpening stone and the axe showing the edge. My place was part of a walking track used by First Nations people moving across the landscape from the Clarence River towards the Mann River.

The hand axe fits so well into my hand it is amazing. The edge is quite sharp for a stone implement. I can well imagine that the person who owned these tools was very upset to find that they had been lost.

The axe is sharpened by using the other stone to chip of bits of the edge. The sharpening stone is also rounded and smooth where it fits into my hand quite easily too.

I am quite proud to be the custodian of these tools for the time being.

5 Minutes Ago – 25 June

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #66

More lovely days. The temperatures have been in the low 20’sC and cold nights, last night was 4C, with clear blue skies.

Something different to listen to while you scroll. Everyone needs someone to keep them warm on Winters night don’t they? A good video too if you have time.

Do you see the tree in the lower right hand corner?

Did you see the little bird? Probably a Yellow-faced Honeyeater as they arrived in numbers at my place during the week. Some will stay, others will continue their migration north.

Another thing to see in this photo. The sun is just kissing the Eucalypt tops this morning but there is something else to see. Very faint and small in the sky.

This is so you don’t have to strain to see what it is. Just a hint of Our Moon on it’s way to becoming a New Moon.
