Daily Diary

The Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge: Daily Diary

The past week, day by day

Day 1: the Red-necked Wallaby and her Joey in the pouch can for a bit of supplementary food in the morning

Day 2: I went to visit my daughter. Always have to open this gate on the road between two properties at Lilydale20200326_2_blog challenge_diary_gate_lilydale
Day 3: My bestie and I went for a drive in the countryside. Found this letter box20200326_3_blog challenge_diary_letter box_clarence valley

Day 4: We went for a walk to see how much of my place has recovered from the devastating fire in December. Growing among some burnt wood a tiny Sunflower showed it’s sunny face. It was probably dropped by a bird from the seed I was putting out for the birds when the place was a charred mess and not much food for the animals and birds.

Day 5: The Caper White Butterflies have turned up on the usual migration. I am glad they like to stop over at my place to refuel before heading off again.20200326_5_blog challenge_diary_caper white butterflies_durranbah
Day 6: I had to go to town to get my car repaired. Keeping my social distance I walked around town taking a few photos. This looks like someone had a helper in the demolition of the front fence.20200326_6_blog challenge_diary_bricks_shovel_toy_grafton
Day 7: A female Satin Bower Bird came to have a look around the verandah. The photo was taken from my chair in my office through the glass door. It has to be a stealthy, quick shot as they sense the slightest movement and fly off lickerty split.20200326_7_blog challenge_diary_bower bird_female_step_durranbah

That was seven days from the daily diary.
