Frog Fast Food Factory

Dear Lord, thank you for the frog fast food factory

Frog Fast-Food Factory

I happened upon this bug catcher,
a wondrous cage of light
in downtown veranda-villa,
sparking up most every night.

There is a family, they flick a switch,
the cage lights up, so sweet.
The bug-eyed bugs, too mesmerised,
are zapped and ready to eat.

The electricity, it does its job
the moths and flies, deceased,
with a flavour slightly BBQ’d
they become a sumptuous feast,

for frogs of all persuasions,
it’s an easy, laid back affair,
care of the fast-food factory
for us frogs, without a care.

Stay away from my bugs!

belly growling,

the puppy contemplates

the sound of hunger

Look at Sheba now!

Sheba looked the worst for wear after her surgery a few weeks back.

Now you would never even know (she has been sheared as well πŸ˜‰ ).

Greece and Italy

My son and I had a short trip to Greece and Italy with a group of school students (teachers and assorted parents) – an ancient history study tour. We had wonderful time πŸ˜€

Happy birthday Mum πŸ˜

A Tree to Remember

1st of September,
Spring in Australia
thinks it’s summer.

Birthday tree,
sapling Norfolk Island Pine
begins the journey

to remember
my late mother,
treasure in my eyes.

Rain, wind, salt and heat
pray on hard scaly leaves,
majesty in growth.

Note: Mum passed away on the 3rd of October 2010 and I planted the Norfolk Island Pine in 2013 (yeah, bit slow off the mark, but it was just as well I waited until we were living on acreage because they get really big πŸ˜‰ )

Super Dog Sheba

Sheba had surgery on a benign tumour a couple of weeks ago

She is doing very well – the wound has healed magnificently

Never met a dog whose hair grows so fast!

She’s a lot happier now 😍

She needs to be sheared along with the alpacas (then we can see the smile)

clock is ticking,

blue notes of winter play

a sombre song
