Not a terribly exciting month for photos as I have been unwell with a cold which is not going away. I decided to do two or maybe more posts about August, one is a fairly large post which will be done soon. At least being unwell allows me time to sit at the computer to sort photos and do stuff that I put off as I have lots to do outside before the weather warms up, although this Winter had been unseasonably warm.
Let’s get started. A few mornings have been slightly foggy. One morning, the early morning fog made the bush look quite surreal.
Some days the clouds were in shapes that made me just stop and look.
I am glad this Red-necked Wallaby stopped and looked before hopping across the road in front of me.
A day was spent at an event in town called Wings and Wheels held at the South Grafton Airfield. It was great to see the Grey Ferguson tractors lines up. This one looked like mine.
One day out and about, we came across this most colourful and crazy garden. Lots of ideas for Cee’s Odd Ball photo challenge that’s for sure.
My bestie said it was time for the old wheelbarrow to get a succulent garden. Didn’t she do a great job? All the plants came from pots around the house and garden.
The hanging geraniums are always in flower.
We doing things in my besties garden when we felt that someone was looking at us.
Here is the biggest Brush Turkey from a nearby town, Kyolge.
Getting home from a drive, the chook decided to detail the car, removing all sorts of insects from the front of my car.
It is nesting time. I wondered what was going on with the mat on the verandah. The White-browed Treecreeper, normally hopping on vertical tree trunks, gathering nesting material.
A Spotted Pardalote was foraging among the vines.
The Welcome Swallows have been nesting in the verandah at my besties new place for years. They have started building their nests too. They are always together.

Checking out the tree tops, an Australian Raven, surveys the scene.
A Pied Currawong found the berries on a Murraya irresistible.
The rather prehistoric looking Noisy Friarbird love Grevilleas.
Eastern Spinebills also love Grevilleas.
The blue black is lovely as a contrast to the rest of their colours. You can see why it is called a Spinebill.
The Galah just loved walking among the grass seeds snacking as he went.
I went down to the bottom part of my property to check on the waterhole. While I was there the activity of birds was quite amazing. A huge flock of Fuscous Honeyeaters were darting everywhere.
One afternoon, the Moon looked so fabulous against the blue sky. I love our Moon.
Well there you go. A quick look at my month of August. Thanks for stopping by. Leave me a comment which will cheer me up no end.
