Spring Colour


There would be a lot more colour except for the rotten (#%*@#*) White Cockatoos who are getting cheekier and cheekier. Our plants close to the house used to be safe but not any more 😦    Last week I found them uprooting to Irises and garlic and feasting on the rhizomes and bulbs.  Thus . . . if you are in the area you might witness a mad woman racing out the back door, yelling and waving her arms frantically at regular intervals, followed by a cloud of white wings and raucous cockatoo laughter!

I think I’ll use them as inspiration for a murder story 🙂

Cockatoo Pie doesn’t have the same ring to it as Pigeon Pie (not that I’ve ever tried it!) but watch this space for a recipe 🙂 lol


Cockatoo Gymnastics

Today’s prompt…

The Cockatoos and their destructive tendancies toward our trees and plants make me angry some days but often they make me laugh. A few days ago I spotted this one prancing up and down the log as if it was on a balance beam, doing a little skip, then a jiggle, then back again and again before giving a bow as in the photo. Coming so soon after the Olympics I think this one’s aiming for Rio De Janeiro 🙂

#%&*@? Cockatoos!!

Today’s prompt…

Senseless vandalism is rampant in our local White Cockatoo community 😦 This is just one of our Agapanthus plants after an attack from these squawkers and many of the others have suffered the same fate. It happened about the same time last year and they did grow back somewhat in Spring but it is so frustrating as they could be so much better.

A ‘Galah’ Occasion :)

Today’s prompt…

We found this flock of Galahs (and a few White Cockatoos) feeding beside the road yesterday. Beautiful birds 🙂
