I haven't posted anything much here for a while because there has been nothing new or different to report. The summer has been average, some rain but not much, we've had lots of butterflies but few low-growing flowers, and plenty of bracken, as always.
Birds have been more active, as have the roos and wombat, but really, all has been pretty quiet. I'm just grateful we haven't had a lot of bushfire risk. We've been clearing around the house and tidying up, as you do in summer, and now autumn is settling in. So only three photos to offer today, and one is of my favourite rocks!

In the open area in front of the house, we've been getting rid of dandelions and bracken on a regular basis and it's great to see now that we have a native lawn/garden instead. As well as native grasses, there are fringe-lilies, violets, rice flowers, groundsel, bears ears and fireweed. I'm watching as the previously bare bank right in front is gradually covered in all sorts as things self-seed. My kind of "gardening"!

While walking a few weeks ago, I heard something and stopped (always a good strategy if you want to see anything other than a disappearing bit of fur). There, just off the track, were three wallabies ... or are they roos? I confess I assumed they were wallabies because of their size. Usually if there are several roos together, at least one of them is quite large. I looked at three different websites today and none of them helped! Readers here might have an opinion?
At first I thought there was only one (we definitely have one swamp wallaby who is always on its own), but then two more heads popped up (below).
