Positive Chickens

Today’s prompt…

This mother has her brood reading the best literature from a young age!

The golden Frizzle is still mothering chickens four years later and although she doesn’t lay a lot of eggs, she lays enough to send her broody again. She is the last surviving hen moved from Traralgon but the flock is growing after several hatchings. Two days ago we got our first egg from a young hen in her last hatch, which yielded five hens and one rooster – great result 🙂

Flying the Flag

Today’s prompt…

This cow in Shepparton is clearly hoping for Aussie gold . . . and has great taste in reading material 🙂

London

Today’s prompt…

While the world focusses on the amazing achievements in London, don’t forget your entries in the July Positive Words Mini-competition need to be posted by tomorrow. The word for this month is BLIND. See under competitions at the side for details 🙂

This photo is another mosaic from Bendigo.

Dinner time

Today’s prompt…

I guess it’s always dinner time with this clock 🙂

Guidepost

Today’s prompt…

Just one of the millions beside our roads. This one on our road on a rainy morning…

Horseshoe Bend Walhalla

Today’s prompt…

This one was taken a few years ago at Horseshoe Bend, Walhalla, about twenty-five kilometres from my old home. I loved visiting Walhalla, an historic gold-mining town and just perfect for a picnic beside the peaceful creek running thorugh the town. (Obviously not this one!)

Sheepish

Today’s prompt…

Don’t be a sheep, dont follow the crowd . . . write something different today 🙂

Laugh out loud!

Today’s prompt…

I took this photo at Gladstone’s Tondoon Botanical Gardens last year when I flew up to meet my grandson Jackie. There were more Kookaburras there than I have ever seen (heard) before. I don’t hear as many Kookaburras here in Heathcote as I used to in Traralgon but still hear a few through the trees now and then, a wonderful sound, and rarely go out in the car without seeing one viewing the world from the power lines.

Nosy neighbour

Today’s prompt…

This curious alpaca lived in the paddock opposite my son Pip’s house when he first moved there (right on the edge of town) three years ago, with a flock of sheep. Unfortunately, he moved away last year when building commenced on a government building (the sign says education centre).  There is still a great view of the Strzelecki Ranges to the other side but I miss seeing this particular neighbour when I visit.

Makes me think of all the different neighbours I’ve had over the years – some good, some not so great but some interesting characters for stories.

Weeding and Editing

Today’s prompt…

Weeding and editing . . . sometimes not much fun but everything looks so much better when its done 🙂
