The coots on the dam are always entertaining, from the scuffles to graceful dives, they are certainly one of the noisiest of this bird community!
Today again was thundery, was raining and dawn. Great fun was had with the stick and general running about! We both got wet!!
A week and a half ago I bought a small mushroom growing kit. I’ve never grown them before. They are Pearl Oysters and I think they are dinner tomorrow!
Saw this before work today. This tail will continue – more to come!
Heading towards late summer the Dahlias are starting to bloom. One of my favourites at this time of year, the sheer variety of their shapes and colours always amazes me.
Yesterday was a day of dramatic thunderstorms. During the afternoon, before the later storms, it became very hot and humid. The surface of the dam was busy! (Click on the images for the best view).
For a long time I have wanted to visit the Tooborac region which amazingly is only 30 minutes drive away. Despite it’s close proximity, the landscape is so very different… in some ways it is like another world. It is a seemingly desolate land of dry grass, boulders and sheep. The outcropping stone is granite.
