The Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Home
I wrote this in March 2012, one of my first posts
It is a question that gets asked a bit…..why do I live so far from town?
So far from town is about 35 kms and takes me around 20 – 25 minutes…..so I wonder what they say to people who live further than that from town!!!
My place is in there somewhere….
The silence of the bush is great, which can be broken by the occasional doff doff from the kids across the way or racing up and down the road on their motorbikes.
I love the animals and birds that hang around the garden
Red necked wallabies love the grass around the house and I think they feel safe
A variety of honeyeaters hang around from time to time…scarlet honeyeaters are always around somewhere.
The numbers of birds are on the rise and there are the occasional ones who tend to piss me off. At the moment the Australian Ravens have taken to eating the chooks eggs. When the winter cold starts to bite in the mountains, the Currawongs come down to here and they just hang around the chook house eating food out of the hopper. Also the Satin Bower Birds arrive as well but for the first time this year, they have stayed. So a few Bower Birds also hang around the chook yard. I have a new rooster, after a few months without a bloke around to look out for the chooks, so I think he may sort out the Ravens.
The Ravens just wander about
I guess my biggest challenge is the weeds. Luckily they aren’t too bad to control. Lantana is easy to knock down but it is in many of the gullies and Fireweed is along the power line clearings. There is a bit of Parramatta Grass and Cotton weed in patches. I found a small patch of Balloon Vine yesterday and will have to remove that as it is flowering.
One of my favourite spots. This waterhole has never dried even in the north coast drought of 2000 – 2002
I love living in the bush maybe that’s why I am bushboy
Life in Colour August: Red
A mid-week bonus photo. I heard the quiet chip chip in the garden this morning. I knew who was out there.
A double red for the bonus this week

Life in Colour August: Red
I said to Jude I might find something and she suggested a Bottlebrush flower. Who am I to refuse a request.
Kates Friday Fun: Harmony
Enjoy a bit of Harmony as you have a look at the selection of birds in the bird baths over the years. Click on any photo to enlarge if it takes your fantasy.
The Bird Weekly Photo Challenge: Birds in Black and White
I thought I had already contributed to Lisa’s photo challenge and looking through my posts I can see that I have written quite a number of posts with a similar theme. I will have to dig into the archives for this one so sorry if you have seen some of these before
Here’s a short song that I discovered many many years ago. I hope you can enjoy it as much as I do.
Terri’s Sunday Stills: A Rosy Outlook
I was wondering what I should post – perhaps flowers, perhaps berries, perhaps man made stuff or blimey lets go with all of them.
