Yellow Tail Black Cockatoo

 

 

While Yellow-Tail Black Cockatoos are said to frequent

as far south as southern Tasmania,

I have only ever sighted them twice. 

Once while we were living on the farm

and once in the fifteen years since we moved. 

I have always thought of them as a

northern bird because southern Victoria’s

cold and wet climate was not not one

which they favoured. 

Both my sightings were in February, or March.

Our summer.

design

a plan or drawing produced to show

Builders create a house plan.

Then buyers redesign some of the elements

to suit their own taste.

Sometimes the customer’s ideas work.

Due to lack of experience, often they don’t.

I am constantly reminded of this market because

I purchased a pendant for MGW to wear to work.

It must have received the tick of approval

as it is still a regular.

 

Nectarines and strawberries…two of my favourites.
