Our Home Among the Gum Trees

This weekend we are spending the whole weekend in our piece of the bush. There will be lots of time with the Little Buttons, some baking, family and friends and great weather to enjoy. I thought I'd share some photos of the view from my front steps. Those big trees are home to possums, koalas, cockatoos, kookaburras and a couple of goannas and many other little creatures we don't know about. We also seem to be attracting an evergrowing population of scrub turkeys who like to eat the scraps that our chickens don't fancy!

I've included some of the before shots of our yard. Hard to believe it is the same place. Mind you, the Little Buttons keep telling me they miss the mud patch, but, for now, they'll have to make do with a roll in the grass and digging in the sandpit.

That was then:

This is now:

I hope your weekend is a happy one!
