I wasn’t going to do this post now but I am awake and it’s after midnight. In comments with Sue and her delightful lamb post I decided to post a few photos of Mothers that come into my garden from time to time. Some photos you may have seen before and maybe others for the first time.
These are Pretty-faced Wallabies. They used to be around the house and garden often. I haven’t seen any for many years now, not even in the bush when out walking.
The next set are Red-necked Wallabies who are always around. There hasn’t been as many since the fire in December 2019. It was during a drought and after the fire I put out a bucket of water for the Wallabies and other animals who survived to have a drink. A mother and daughter having a drink at sunrise
As well as buying pellets of marsupial food for them to eat. Sometimes it’s easy to have breakfast in bed
I think I was spotted by Mum

There are two flags that I feel are representative of Australia. The first is the official flag that get flown around the country that shows the wonderful constellation, the Southern Cross and our historic ties to Great Britain. The second is the flag that recognises our First Nations people, which also gets flown on Government buildings and other locations.
So there is the Red, White and Blue

The Red Black and Yellow of the Indigenous Flag. The Aboriginal Flag is divided horizontally into equal halves of black (top) and red (bottom), with a yellow circle in the centre. The black symbolises Aboriginal people. The yellow represents the sun, the constant re-newer of life. Red depicts the earth and peoples’ relationship to the land.
