Small

Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Smaller than a Bread Box or Bread Bin

Now just to be sure I had to include my bread bin again so you know the scale Cee wants

A little Grey Fantail sits on a gate maybe looking for food for the family

Grey Fantail chicks are always hungry

Meanwhile, an ant has a drink of water. I don’t know what their real name is, I just call them gold bums

It’s my country comfort

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Thursday: Country Comfort

Have a listen while you enjoy my country comfort

The road to my place. In this post I haven’t included so much that happens here to keep it brief, no butterflies or insects, a few birds, no garden flowers, no bush views, I hope you don’t mind.

Mt country comfort in the bush

My favourite place to go and relax and enjoy the bush, the sounds and the birds

How I communicate with the world

The sheds are a place of work and contemplation

The garden relaxes

Some days I actually see sunrise

There is always visitors who come to the verandah and say g’day A male Satin Bowerbird drops in and is usually followed by a female or two. I can tell when the mountains are getting a bit cooler when the Bowerbirds come down from the mountains and settle here for Winter.

Tiny the King Parrot enjoys coming to the house to make sure I am OK. Not really, he’s just looking for snacks.

Sometimes a stranger wants to see why the verandah is special. A Wonga Pigeon was a first time visitor to the garden a few years ago. I hope they return this year.

Sometimes the king Parrots are quite curious on what I am doing around the place

The place to sit and relax and enjoy the country comfort. When are you going to drop in?

On my screen

Inspired by Becky’s Bright Eyes desktop, I thought I would share mine for Clare’s Share Your Desktop
Maybe there is enough pink for Jude’s Life in Colour too

These roses smell as sweet

Debbie’s quotation inspired image

    “That which we call a rose by any other word would smell as sweet.”
– William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Eastern Rosellas, maybe Harley and Rose – just as sweet
