BIRDS AND FAIRIES



Faeries In My Garden

The Fairy Song
White coral bells
Upon a slender stalk;
Lilies-of-the-Valley
Deck my garden walk.

Oh, don't you wish
That you could
Hear them ring?
That can happen only
When the faeries sing!"

Sharon Lovejoy



I wish I had fairies singing in my garden!

I do have a fairy door and a new little pal to go next to it.


This cute hedgehog was a Christmas present from my daughter J who understands my love of fairies and toadstools.

J has just had an exhibition at Gallery 9 in Darlinghurst, Sydney. Here are a few pictures of her unusual sculptures on show.










This last one is called Gollum and sold on the opening night.

P and I took a drive to picturesque Shellharbour Village.











We stopped for lunch at a kerbside cafe on the main street.



I treated myself to 2 potato scallops.



They were the most delicious scallops I have ever had. Not that I have many. I watch my diet too carefully for that.


We went for a walk along the foreshore and came across this very precocious raven by the swimming pool.


It just sat on the post as we walked by. This type of raven is native to Australia.

Speaking of native birds, the lyrebird has been back at my back door again.......


...and the Catbirds have been picking my unripened mangoes and eating them.



These photos are taken through my lounge room window and not very good, but you get the idea.

I love to see the native birds that come to my garden.

And finally a lovely white toadstool that came up on my footpath.
