This walk was short, and aimed at these flowers which I’d spotted the day before whilst driving past. So, a few days ago, we walked down our side lane to check out these large lily-like flowers.
Do you know what it is? I had a quick look, but couldn’t see anything like it. The blooms are a little smaller than a belladonna lily.
On the way, we spotted some of the usual interesting sights…
Putting a page break here.
On the way back – for it was just a short walk – I caught a glimpse of a pair of colourful Eastern Rosellas. I see them more often these days, from afar.
I remembered to look up at a hollow branch where galahs had shown interest. One popped out – a female by the colour of her eyes.
Took a bit of wriggling to get out before she snuggled up to her mate – I’ll show you those photos tomorrow.
A magpie forages among the daisies…
And then we’re home, walking past my front garden. This iris is special as I bought it home from mum’s years ago but this is the first time it’s flowered.
Now that regional Victoria is free again, we may go camping in a few weeks, after the rush dies down and the school holidays are over. There is a ‘ring of steel’ around metro Melbourne to keep them from us and a hefty fine for those who seek to sneak out to enjoy our liberties.
Thanks for looking. Stay safe.
