These lovely small swift birds have alluded my camera for 35 years. Considering they are plentiful in my area, it is hard to believe. Wikipedia “The cockatiel, also known as miniature cockatoo, weero, or quarrion, is a bird that is a member of its own branch of the cockatoo family endemic to Australia. They are […]

Marginal Country……that’s what we live in, meaning, in part, rain is marginal…… we live in a 8-9 inch (200-225mm) rainfall country, so we don’t ask for much. You look after the land out here when it dries off, wait for the rain, and the land will respond, green, seeding grasses that dry off, but still full of goodness.
Some who don’t think a camera is an extension of oneself most likely wouldn’t understand that some, like myself, going NINE days between using your camera is like a lifetime ……..

I hope you enjoy the results.

Did you know that the UN declared 2015 as the International Year of Soils? Want to know if you have healthy soil? Collect 1/3 glass jar of soil, 1/2 fill the jar with water and shake vigorously, let settle for an hour and the organic matter will float. Measure the thickness of the float and […]
I love finding time to enjoy the city in more ways than one. Today after shopping I got to visit New Farm Park. What a gem in the middle of the hustle and bustle. I LOVE trees, especially trees with a bit of character. Jacaranda through the dense canopy of green foliage. There was an […]
We were been blessed with patchy storm rain at the beginning of the year. So we have been able to fatten cattle. But not knowing if we will get a wet season this year, since some are fat, and a bonus for us, prices are high, our management plan to cull coloured heifers were reasons to muster […]
