Fellow Traveller

We had a trip to Brisbane this week, it seems we took this lovely Green Tree Frog along for ride, How and why he got into the car door cavity we're not sure.

Rainbow Lorikeets

These delightful parrots are having a ball in our font garden at the moment. They are spending time between a flowering Corkwood tree and a Eucalypt "Summer Red" It's probably the only time I find squawking relaxing. The photos didn't turn out too bad, my camera has a telescopic lense on it but quite often it doesn't focus well. I wouldn't get this close without it

Our Tree change

Well, we are fully retired now and living in our lovely home at Tamborine Mountain surrounded by a beautiful garden full of Camellias, Vireyas and Clivias. The Vireya pictured is Souvenir De Mangles. Up here we are often in the misty clouds during the rainy summer season as you can see from this image. We have left Frog garden behind at Balmoral but we take with us lots of wonderful memories which are recorded on this blog. We have lots frogs on Tamborine Mountain but they might be a little harder to catch on camera. It has been a long time since I've posted. Larraine was ill for a long period and her recovery took priority. Hopefully I can keep it updated now that we are settling into our new home.
