Pruning and weeding at the front of the house.
Whilst busy this afternoon I managed to make a new friend. It was really quite funny. We have a couple of families of Currawongs http://birdsinbackyards.net/species/Strepera-graculina whom I often see when I go for my walks. There always seems to be a Mummy a Daddy and a Baby, I always say hello where is your Mummy etc.
But whilst weeding the Grevillia bushes this one which I think must be the baby followed me around and came quite close. I fetched some Native Bird food and found a ceramic low bowl which I filled with water and placed underneath the water tap. It was almost as if he wanted to be my friend. Whilst I weeded one bush he wandered down to the next one and started pecking away at the earth. He followed me whenever I moved. Unfortunately I didn't have the camera at that stage.
But whilst the tea was cooking I went out to take a photo of the days work, and my new friend waddled up to me (keeping at a distance of about one meter away) These are the photos I managed. But tomorrow I will try to get more.
Excitement during the past week was when the neighbour over the back fence had one of his trees chopped down. This was a beautiful Jacaranda. He never saw the brilliance of it as it was too close to his house but we saw it in flower every year, and the birds did love the branches. The first is a photo 'prepared earlier'. and the second the Lumberjack in action.
On the Sewing Front ..... I have almost finished the "Trees" row for the Robin Rowers but can't show you until it is received. But after a lot of thought and false starts its looking good.
