Margaret's Classic Posts

Proud, strong and handsome, a Kookaburra perches on a tree in our local park. Luckily for all, it’s a reserve devoted to native vegetation, birds, reptiles and so on. The perfect home for our iconic, featured friend.

Stop Press: I’m in a Magazine!

26 Nov

Here’s news: I’m in a magazine!

The Australia Times has just published its first edition about Indie writers and their work. Not only have they reviewed my eleventh title, ‘Love, Desire and Betrayal’, but also they’ve published an article about me and my writing.

I’m thrilled!

A Wonderful Surprise…

26 Aug

Sydney’s weather today may have been rather cold and wet, but this afternoon I made a discovery that for me banished the gloom.

A sincere ‘Thank you’ to Goodreads member Tony Parsons, who has obviously devoted time and effort in writing this review of my latest release, ‘Love, Desire and Betrayal’.

I Wonder What He’s Thinking…

Contemplative Kookaburra

I wonder what he’s thinking.

This Kookaburra seems to me to be in a reflective pose. He’s encroaching on human territory, boldly perching on a hand-rail that’s beside a major pathway to the river baths.

But I guess that he and his mates are by now well used to human contact. In fact, they often use it to their advantage, gathering snacks from unsuspecting (and sometimes compliant) picnickers.

Don’t you think he’s a handsome fellow?

So many people said how well they enjoyed my post about the Four O’Clocks of my childhood that I’ve decided to show some more of my recently-taken  pictures of them.

Their diversity of colour, and their marked habit of responding to the conditions of light, certainly grab my attention.

Aren’t they quite amazing plants?
