The magpies have come to appreciate our small walnut treats so much that early in the mornings, they’re gathering on our back fence to sing us a lovely “rise and shine” song 😆 What great birds!

Recently I’ve taken to throwing some walnut pieces out towards the local magpies when they stop by my house (which is not every day). Yesterday, four of them swung by (yes, one is not pictured), and they even sang a little for me (or to discourage other birds, who’s to say)! 😄
I got the chance to try out the “Merlin Bird ID” app that Miraz mentioned yesterday when I took Gidget outside this morning. I thought that the bird squawking at us angrily was a wattlebird, and even with my dodgy silhouette picture the app confirmed my thinking: its best guess was “little wattlebird”! 😄 Cool stuff.
Today we walked all the way from our local beach to Red Bluff. To actually get across to the south side of the cliff, there were some really steep sections making for an unexpected challenge in the middle of our walk 😅 But exhausted as we now feel, it was totally worth it.
Some very dramatic skies about for our regular Sunday beach walk.
To further enjoy the perfect weather this weekend, Viv and I made it out to Sherbrooke Forest and did a 2¼ hour walk there. Beautiful scenery, and we finished early enough to get lunch at the café on site. Awesome day 😁
The other day when I was walking along the driveway, I looked up and noticed these avocados growing in the tree outside my neighbours' flat! 🥑 Last year the tree produced only one avocado all season long, but this year seems to have been more fruitful 😊
A few years ago, my grandma came and helped me plant some things in the flowerbed at the front of my flat. Some of them died, and after some point, I’d thought this orange flower was one of them. With this year’s La Niña summer, though, it’s surprised me and come back alive 😊
Today Victoria is still in lockdown, although the good news is that’ll end at midnight tonight, on schedule. Another piece of good news: no further sign of those dang wasps!! This photo was taken from what was under their flight path 😎 #mbfeb
