Kookaburra Grabs a Treat

It’s not uncommon to discover Australia’s Laughing Kookaburras looking for whatever they can find that picnickers have left behind – or even for these bold birds to snatch a piece of someone’s lunch.

But recently I saw one, that was about to fly off with a piece of orange rind in its beak. Maybe it was health-conscious… How much better was this than, say, half a burned sausage?

It’s Wisteria Time!

Here in Sydney, Australia, it’s wisteria time! Though it isn’t as easy to spot as it was years ago, there are still houses around that feature it in their gardens. Our home is old – being built almost one hundred years ago, and the wisteria in our yard might well have been planted way back then. It has definitely graced our springtime for over half a century. I remember it in flower as a small child.

While its flowers are delightful, the perfume that accompanies them is also worthwhile.

Enjoy!

The House That I Grew Up In…

2008_03020220This is a painting I did about eight years ago of the house that I grew up in. It was located quite near the city of Sydney, and wasn’t far from a very busy thoroughfare. Its most impressive feature, to my young mind, was the staircase that led from the street to the front verandah. Sometimes, at night, we would sit outside and look up at the moon and stars. We seemed to be quite high off the street. Funny how age changes our perceptions…

Sadly, the house was demolished a few years ago.
