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 Lilydale
Day 3: My bestie and I went for a drive in the countryside. Found this letter box
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.
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.
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.
That was seven days from the daily diary.

Terri’s Sunday Stills: #Sweet
Since the fire, I have been putting out food for the Red-necked Wallabies and anyone else who was hungry. A while ago I noticed one of the females pouch was getting bigger and eventually a Joey poked their head out (Jump for Joy) and the update
This morning a Red-necked Wallaby hopped in to the garden. I have seen her before as she was one of the regulars who came for food. Today, I noticed her pouch was a bit squirmy and yes she also has a Joey.
As the Wallabies have Joeys, it points to a good season ahead. When the years are not that good as the past 2 – 3 years have been, there hasn’t been many young around. During hard times, Wallabies won’t produce young.
I’ll be keeping an eye out for others now. Having a photographic record I should be able to identify the females and those who have young.
It’s been a couple of weeks since I have seen the Red-necked Wallaby and her Joey. This afternoon she hopped into the garden for a quick visit and a bit of a snack.
Joey has a bit more fur than last time you saw her/him. I was quite happy to see the Mum as she is looking well. Joey still has a bit of skin around the muzzle and eyes but a lot of what I could see has fur. It won’t be long before Joey is out of the pouch and hopping about my garden.

I will be waiting for this little fellow to be big enough to be able to hop out of the pouch and jump for joy, speeding around my garden.
