Before I headed out today I was feeling a bit blah still…I had to go to the shops and was really lacking the motivation….so I grabbed my camera and left the house..i went to the car popped my handbag inside then went walkies..it was a lovely Autumn day today and as I started to wend my way down the path I already felt a bit more invigorated…there where birds everywhere chipping chirping and flying about..so busy so intent on their daily routines I envy their freedoms ..imagine being able to fly….
So after stopping now and then to try and grab snaps of the birds I continued on..the mosses and grasses are making their comeback and I can’t wait for the little native Sundews…tiny little carnivorous plants that dot the path to the dam and seemingly all at once bloom with gorgeous white flowers atop their little sticky spiny stalks.. this is one of my favourite seasons..when the dry dust and endless grey/green of summer, leaves and rewards the earth with colour..the Chocolate lilies..ironically purple..will cover the entire property and grow to waist height…
I get to the top of the hill..mind wandering to the seasons change and spot my Ketchup mob in the paddock that adjoins our property line…they had been for breakfast in our front yard this morning then moved to the neighbours and now were sunbathing and grazing in the lower paddock…our sheep watching on and the neighbours horses happily grazing in with them…harmony of different species says a lot for the human race I think..
I sat down and they became aware of me…they were not that fazed..they have seen me many times and I pose no threat..so there I was..on the grassy ground..sitting on roo poo and near a fox bolt in the sunshine just me and the sheep and the roos and the horses..hills ..fluffy clouds of shale grey and white…..birds swooping and diving in the dam…I had arrived..i was at my motivation..right there on the hill …this is all I need to refresh my body and soul..grounded in the best possible way..
Enjoy a little peek into my world..and bigify as the joey is just the most sweet little thing and he just kept wanting to get out..this is why I believe I live in the best country in the world..how lucky am I 🙂
