I’m late this week because

inspiration was eluding me. 

Then the penny dropped!!

My hideaway is my study/office or

whatever you like to call it.

So I took photo of my work area, carefully eliminating

most of my messy desktop.

During a search for photos of a not messy study

I came upon this image of over a decade ago.

If only I could maintain this amount

of mess I would be happy.

Hopkins Falls, on the Hopkins River…

…is a few kilometres out of Warrnambool

in Victoria’s SouthWest.


At only 12 metres high it is not a high falls however,

it is 90 metres wide which compensates it lack in height.

This is an  August (winter) photo.

During summer months while there is

still water flowing it is nothing like this.

All images were taken within our garden

and often taken through a window

so as not to disturb our

feathered friends.

Prior to 2016 we used to have…


…a family of magpies visit on a regular basis. 


Two pups came along and quickly…


…told the magpies where to go.  🙂


Galahs and…

…Cockatoos visit

during summer months.


I’m not sure what they are after, however,

our yard receives a free aeration.


Mudlarks are known for their ability

to annoy other birds. 

This hawk must have had enough and

mudlark did not annoy anymore.



Red Rump Parrot is also another visitor.


The mate of this Superb Fairy Wren was

nesting somewhere among garden shrubs.

This family of… 


New Holland Honey Eaters…


…live in our garden all year round.
