I saw the word and of course I thought of my chooks or poultry or chickens for those non-Aussies reading this post.

The Ragtag Tuesday prompt: Serendipity
I have been in the right place at the right time with my camera a couple of times.
This instance, it was late afternoon and I was looking for a good place to watch the sunset at my besties old place. I looked up and there was a Regent Bowerbird unmistakable with its vivid colours. A managed a couple of quick photos before it flew off back into the rainforest. Disappointed with the quality of the photo but elated never-the-less.
This bit of serendipity was one of extreme joy. The right place and right time was sitting on my verandah having a cup of coffee. There in the Tea Tree sat a bird that is Critically Endangered, a Regent Honeyeater. The estimated know population is between 800 and 2000 birds. I was so happy to see this young male at my place for a few minutes
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge : Places People Visit
I am going to be very home town for places people visit. At this time of year, my town of Grafton is awash with purple. The Jacaranda trees are starting to come into flower and the town is gearing up for the annual Jacaranda Festival.
The Jacaranda Festival is the longest running floral festival in Australia. People come from all over the world to Grafton to visit and wander the town, look at the gardens and marvel at the purple everywhere.
The trees look a treat
There is even a few White Jacaranda trees around town
The streets look a treat. When the blossoms drop the ground is a carpet of purple.
Even the birds like to nest in the Jacaranda trees
There is poignant street art.
I have some people booked into my place this weekend from Taiwan so maybe I will have a busy few days over the weeks to come at the Durranbah Bush Retreat
