Kookaburra in the garden

This gorgeous bird and two companions were keeping watch in our garden this afternoon.  Love the kookaburras, such beautiful looking birds.

My guardian cat

Whenever I’m out and about in the garden, my cat Toki, is never far away. Always keeping me in his sights. He’s a handsome cat and I thought I’d share him with you here.

Beautiful Sunset in Selby

I’ve been very busy since coming back from holidays and when I checked this blog found that something had gone awry with the theme template. Will have to fix it over the weekend. But it won’t stop me from posting as I need to get back into it. Thought I’d share with you this most beautiful sunset from tonight. These images were taken with me standing on a small rock so I was looking over my neighbour’s home.  And the sun was huge!

Kookaburra on our fence

I mentioned yesterday about the kookaburra in our neighbour’s yard. This one was in our front garden, on our fence.  They love to watch for worms on the ground. I wonder how they can actually see them. It’s really amazing. When the weather gets warmer they’ll also be on the look out for skinks and other lizards, even snakes.

Hardenbergia – The Happy Wanderer

A friend of mine posted a photo of this on Facebook and I asked him questions about the plant. Thought it so pretty. So I went in search of it to buy. Apparently you can get it in white as well, and I’ve since seen it in places near home, growing along fences. You can allow it to grow prostrate too, which is what I’ll do. It is sometimes called the Happy Wanderer. These flower winter to early spring and are very pretty.
