Roxy "the cat from next door" has all but moved in. She's such a darling,  and so good with George.  She plays a very special role in our otherwise currently pet free home.

She even puts up with G feeding her then pushing her towards the bowl saying "eat your yummy kai" (kai =food).

 

It's kinda hilarious,  she's very patient,  he's Incredibly gentle,  for the most part.

Hi - about as late as possible for 2019, but this is Daisy - helping me change the linen on my bed (then she saw something interesting out the window and I was able to snap this :-))

 

Loving all the photos

The blue wren reminds me of our little Dorper sheepie - Rose is always shouting at something or somebody.

 

My poor chooks are under siege the last week or two, as if heat-stress isn't hard enough on them.  The goanna stomped off empty-handed, the eagles catch a gosling or chicken occasionally, they are always on watch.  And this bloody fox!!!  It must live very close-by, tests every pen at night, I can get up at 3.00am and see it busily doing the rounds.  And it makes a raid or two in broad daylight to see if any birds are out for their free range time.  Having to keep them locked in more and more.  Don't always know immediately if one is missing, have around 100 chooks n chicks between 14 odd smaller and larger pens, so don't do a headcount every day, then it is "hang on, where is the blue Silkie - oh".

Yes - I'm grateful we don't have the big or aggressive ones  - bears, honey badgers, leopards etc.  Our area is free of dingoes and wild dogs so not too much to complain about.

New Year's Day - the Highland Gather at Maryborough, Vic.

Couldn't help thinking of Gillybob.

"In the land of kilted men".

(Where is @gillybob )??

Gotta love the kilt. I think it looks smart . A FB friend recently got married to a VERY Braw Scot  & he wore a dress kilt & looked to die for ! He also , as part of his gift to her, learned to play the bagpies so he could play something at the wedding! Definitely a keeper! 

I also always thing of GB  LOL  :D

Really hay from asparagus?  Is that a thing - or is it another plant (like the "Asparagus Fern" that is a weed in the Dandenongs).  Kangaroos here still have a limited pick of dry grass - but they just look over it, the heat has been exhausting them.

 

This is the lamb I had to pull, first time I've had to, so amazed she survived.  She is now about 4-5 months, fiercely independent of her mum and twin brother, and I think can escape any fence known to man-kind.  So when a new bale was dropped off ($150: hay is eye-watering prices this year eh) she declares it hers and nobody elses'.

yes! We bought quite a bit some years ago as the goats devour it. Depending on the stage of growth of the asparagus, it can be very 'leafy'..and stock don't mind it. Some 'local' asparagus growers had asparagus for picking, and some for haying.
That little lamb looks very happy with herself, thank you very much LOL !!

Spicks and specks of colour are always good.  Who had rain where it hasn't been seen for yonks?  We just had a quick storm of 10 mil.  Haven't had fires here, but the smell of wet ashes in the air from the smoke is amazing.
