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…

Wednesday Walk

Flowers, Sheep and Birds


My bird book – ‘The Slater Field Guide to Australian Birds‘ – managed to confuse me when I made a quick identity check on these Eastern Rosellas before posting.  The damned book shows the wrong undercarriage – very little green and no red undertail at all.


So there I was, confronted with the wrong-coloured picture – trying to decide if  what I had photographed were a hybrid Crimson and Eastern Rosella.


I couldn’t see how, for the Crimson Rosella has blue cheeks.  Duhhh.


These photos were taken with the Nikon D3000  on our walk yesterday ( a mere kilometre). Not the best pics in the world, but I don’t usually get the chance to aim the camera, let alone snap a few, with these ones.


Thanks for looking. Hope you’re having a beaut weekend.




White-cheeked Rosella


I spotted this pretty Eastern Rosella on my walk earlier in the week. They never come into my yard but I often see a pair skimming overhead towards the paddocks behind my place.





Thanks for looking.
