Decided to skip back across the ditch

to MY Corner of the World this week.


If you use your imagination…

…it is not a great leap to think of this shape as

the top half of an elephant.

And I guess that was running through

early settlers/explorers minds when they named

this extinct (I hope) volcano

Mount Elephant.

Mount Elephant is just one of

half a dozen volcanic cones

(that I can think of off-hand)

which dot Victoria’s Western District farmland.

Newest to oldest cats.

Smudge…our Christmas 2019 timid rescue cat.



It took him until Jul 2019 to come near the house.


And that was only because the dogs were

on the back verandah.



Our last link with the farm…Soxie.

He passed away in 2016.




I found Moppett dumped in Dad’s hays shed.

He was a very young kitten.

Moppett also came with us when we moved,

and disappeared shortly thereafter.

Six weeks later we received a phone call from a local

to see if we owned and grey and white cat.



Moppett had been scavenging for that time and

was definitely in need of a good feed.

We think he hopped onto the spare tire, under the tray of

my ute of the day we were toing and froing

to the local garden supplier, while we had coffee.

Moppett died of old age at least ten years ago

and had to be buried under a Mop Top tree

behind the catery.





A variety of reds.

First, the most obscure…the Red Rump Parrot.


The eye of

South Africa’s

Ground Hornbill.


A shot which could only

be taken in London.



One Dahlia…


…and another Dahlia…


Red Headed Weaver,










I just could not get a background free imaage of this…

Crimson Shrike.

Sighted in Botswana.

African Harrier Hawk


Fog tends to add a grey tone a landscape…

…whether it is a Black and White…

…or colour image.




Finally, the Moorabool Valley in its foggy glory








Back in the old days…

…car bumpers were made of metal.

Times change along with materials used.

A form of plastic is used in modern vehicles.

Heating, reforming and painting was all it took

to have this encounter with concrete

looking as good as new.
