In one door, out the next….almost

John’s Cellpic Sunday

This is where I do an explanation of my phone photo from my Last on the Card post.

On Thursday afternoon I heard and saw a group of Kookaburras chasing each other around the garden. I suspect the parents were trying to send an offspring out of their patch to start life somewhere else.

Suddenly there was a loud banging and crashing in my house. I went to investigate and found a Kookaburra in the loungeroom next to the back door. There was a small hole in the screen door and I slowly slid the door across and the Kookaburra flew out. Once outside there was a loud cackling of all the Kookaburras in the trees.

Here is the back screen door and the beak shaped hole

I wondered about the hole as it was small and the wire was bent outwards. After a while I went to go out of the front door and this is what I found.

The wire on the screen is not soft nylon it is metal wire, not as hard as the rear screen door but hard enough. I was amazed that the Kookaburra wasn’t badly injured.

Margaret’s hat

John’s Cellpic Sunday

This Margaret Olley’s hat

Margaret Olley was a famous Australian artist. When she died, her house and contents were carefully recreated in the Tweed Art Gallery, even as you can see in the above photo, cigarette butts in an ashtray.

Here are a few views from inside of her house in the gallery. Have a peek through the windows
