Family visiting, perfect time for kangaroos and wallabies on the lawn. We watered it during the previous week to make sure there was fresh food to attract them. Did you know that is how the first peoples caught their kangaroos in years gone by? They burnt in patches, so when fresh grass grew up the animals came to feed and were easy to kill with spears or boomerang. Of course, we are just enjoying the spectacle!
and while I am sharing with you, this wonderful elderly Black Swamp wallaby had found a pumpkin that was hanging over the vegetable garden fence … he has been very comfortable and friendly around the garden for a while … for example coming inside the gate when it is left open (who does that?) and eating oranges from the orange tree!
Tomorrow is party day here, and a photographer is coming (hello Ruth … it could have been you if we were in Pittsburgh!) to capture us all together (three sons, their wives and children) for the first time for some years, plus the new baby to celebrate! Thank you all for your good wishes 🙂
