So here they are. Explanations come after each photo.
Every weekend we go to Belair National Park which is just up the road from us. Even though the week before there was an uncontrolled bushfire raging there, last weekend it was as if nothing had happened. The long very hot Adelaide summer has taken its toll though on some of the trees. This lovely conifer has shed more than half of its foliage. Lets hope it recovers.
Here are some of the leaves. They look beautiful all piled up but it does show the tragedy of how much stress these trees are under. A rather strange woman asked me what I was photographing so I showed her. Wasn't impressed funnily enough.
The lake is a little lower in level. Well, a lot lower (the sign is usually in the water), but I was heartened to see what we call the Mystery Island was still unreachable. Phew.
You don't usually see koalas drinking water on ground level during the day, but he/she was obviously desperate. We watched it for about 5 minutes and she didn't move from her spot. Just slowly lapped and lapped...
Look at this cheeky chap? I like the little head cocked on its side. He spotted the bread we were holding and bold as brass, loped up to us waiting patiently and with a curious twinkle in its eye. I like magpies (or maggie's as most Australians call them). I like their chat and chortling. The slight eye-pecking threat is also interesting.
There - that was a snap of my weekend.
It'll probably be the exact same this weekend. I like that.
