09.Aug.14 12 lemons

This last Saturday, I decided to have a lemon harvest. Picking the fully yellow ones, I managed to gather 12! There are many more left on the tree I am leaving to ripen. Exciting. In fact, I have been adding lemon zest and juice into almost everything I cook.

09.Aug.14 Thought to cut some flowers from the bushes

And because the camellias are blooming, I helped myself to some. It’s rare of me to decorate with flowers, so the jug is a temporary vase. I have to admit that having these colours livens the space.

Resident Kangaroos

That very same Saturday afternoon, Hubs and I decided to go on a short ‘discovery walk’ on the land across us. The lots of land are notably larger, and we spotted 6 kangaroos that roam here. What kangaroos are to Australia are what deer are to North America, I guess?

On our way home, I spotted a circular blob on a gum tree.

Catching sight of a koala makes me happy. This would be my second time seeing this guy on our street, the first for The Hubs. He must travel quite a bit, because the last time I saw this koala was many, many houses away! Unless we’re looking at a different one? Maybe one day I’ll learn to recognise each koala from their bottoms.

So round

Oh, just hanging around and relaxing. How adorable is this fluffy round blob?

  1. So cool! I’ve only seen these animals in a zoo. Thanks for sharing! Have you named your koala? Are the kangaroos used to being around people, or do they run (hop?) away when they see you? You’re inspiring me to try to get some good photos of the birds here on the Gulf coast. So far, they’re not that great (the pics, not the birds!). What camera do you use?

    1. Thanks Laura! I normally just snap photos with the iPhone. Birds move really quickly, so I can imagine how difficult they must be to capture…
      And yes, the kangaroos tend to hop away whenever we approach.
