there have been owls, wedge tailed eagles, magpies bathing in the front sprinkler puddles, and this morning a blue wren. the willy wagtails are always calling and keeping close company.
we are currently being held hostage by a plague of giant sized mosquitoes. scary vicious creatures they are. i dont like blood suckers, insect or human lol.
my magnolia blessed me with a new flower this morning. she doesnt usually flower at this time of year. my garden is happy. i even have an echinacea flowering. annnd i just planted a red wattle that smells of cinnamon! magic i think. ive smelt it... i will be happy to see it flowering because that will also mean it is autumn...my favourite time of the year.
