The grape leaves have begun to change into their Autumnal colouring after the couple of quite cold nights we had
My DH's eldest daughter bought me a bunch of these the other day
such an amazing colour. I am not sure what they are called,
they last for ages as cut flower
The summer garden has not been a success as previously mentioned. I am delighted to have any vegies coming from the garden.
My beautiful chooks are laying two eggs a day at present and my youngest one is finally looking as if her combs and wattles are beginning to grow. I think I have two girls laying good eggs firm shells and lovely dark colours as Barnevelders should be. I found an egg two days ago that was thin shelled and very flexible and fragile, it was also very pale.
This is one that weighs in at 43gms and
has this amazing speckle appearance.
Which you can see more clearly in the close up
I went out a bit later in the day when their had been a raucous lot of clucking to be able to take this photo. No other chookie was about so I think she may have been singing out to celebrate, or is it moaning from the exertion?
Yes that is a golf ball. It is my fake egg.
It is amazing what I see sometimes when I walk out the back door. I was watching a Kookaburra sitting on a branch, and I decided to go and grab my camera. He was sitting watching something in the undergrowth and just after I arrived back and took this shot he swooped down. There was a rustle in the long dry summer grass, up he flew with a small rabbit in his mouth. I was not quick enough to capture it, well the one photo I managed was just a bit of his wing.
