It seems ages since yellow capeweed daisies have taken over the landscape like this – makes me glad I laid weed mat under the clothesline ages ago! No bees up pants legs this year!

Hope you had a good weekend. Almost over.

Cows ‘n Capeweed


This walk was Sunday, 21st June, 2020. First off, we headed down Joe’s Road,  checking where the cows were, and hoped for kangaroos. Both were having an afternoon snooze.


The first destination is Barri’s Lane which runs along the hill top, among the trees.

A White-plumed Honeyeater on our right …


A quick glimpse of a bird of prey on high – a wedge-tailed eagle, perhaps.




And up bit further up, kangaroos on our left…


We turn into Barri’s Lane – both named after Joseph Barri, an early Italian settler. Lots of photos today. Continue reading

Wednesday Walk

A long walk


Yesterday, I popped down the side lane with the Nikon D3000. People from both houses on the other side were outdoors, so I got to see some other human life! Mr. W. was putting some seating in the middle of his paddock – the one where the wool-shedding sheep live. He called out to me and, after asking how we were faring, from a distance, informed me that he was celebrating his mate’s birthday. I’m sure he said he would be singing happy birthday from there. Said friend, living in the next house, was out cleaning his roof gutters.

I walked on, leaving my Mr. R. to chat with him. I was pleased to see plenty of distant kangaroos. Cows first, though. That pale cow was being different again – this time I’d captured it just as it flopped down.


I walked a little further, while behind me Mr.R. got stuck into his bit of mowing. He’s been having trouble with various bits of his anatomy, so decided to pare down his mowing stints into smaller daily time segments. A good idea.

I’m not sure how this next image will work on smaller screens, you’ll have to scroll it, sideways, I guess. Tons of kangaroos, most resting in the grass. This was only a fraction of them.


That changed as I got closer.


And closer.


Finally, there was only the one left as the others decided to leave.


I returned home, returning the enthusiastic waves from a kid, now out with his dad, still gutter cleaning. I guess the lad was pleased as I, to see another human.

Thanks for reading and/or looking. Stay safe.
