Enchanted Morning

Tanya Eastaway, daughter-in-law of Les Eastaway from Taree was playing golf early one perfect morning at Lynwood Country Club near Windsor in Sydney. She snapped this bird reflected in calm water as it looked for breakfast. We think it’s a gannet. But a lovely peaceful scene, almost a delicate water colour painting.  Related PostsTHE DEATH […]

HOME DELIVERIES…

Who remembers the old days of home deliveries when we lived in a country town?  A horse drawn milk cart, where the old horse plodded from house to house knowing where to stop. The clatter of milkcans and milk being poured in the jug or billy can left on the front step, verandah or gate.  […]

This would lift the Landcare initiative for 20 million trees to be planted in Australia by 2020 five-fold.
