I have a lot more to show you but must be off for a walk to the dam right now, then making apple jelly before dinner.

Love to all at home.

  9. What a fun trip, and I love those parrots! My dh has been to Australia before and told me about large pink birds that he saw perched in the trees. Enjoy your visit!
