Strolling around my Favourite Place

4 Oct

Chicki on the promenade

Cockatoos flying

Kookaburra

What a lovely morning! Sydney’s run of Spring-like weather continues, beckoning  us outdoors, to see and feel its glory.

Chicki, my little white dog,  and I strolled along the promenade, besides the river. We seemed quite alone, save for a flock of distant white cockatoos, some magpies, kookaburras, and a few tiny swallows perching on the net of the swimming baths.

For a while, only the sounds of the birds disturbed the peace: but there playful and busy noises in no way detracted from the beauty of the scene.

What a charming, relaxing place!

A Sunshiny Spring Day in the Park

Wildflowers by the river

Cockatoo feeding

Spring! The season for lovers, poets, and just about anyone who loves to see the renewal of life.

Spring! A time for celebration of nature’s beauty: wildflowers.

Spring! A day: today: when the white cockatoos squawked ever louder, flying higher, ever higher, then coming in to land on the branches of old gum trees. Squawking loudly: gaily raising the yellow plumage that adorns their heads. Swooping to the ground, searching for food. Delighting my eyes!

A glorious day in a native parkland, in Sydney, Australia!
