gallery Snapshot Sunday: Garden Visitor

We get a lot of wallabies and potoroos around our street and they are often in the garden at night. I don’t often see them during the day. I went outside on a dull, rainy afternoon and this guy was sitting in the middle of the back lawn. He didn’t seem to be in a hurry to leave so I went back inside for the camera. By the time I came back he was over by the flowers. Some animal had been eating my recently planted Federation Daisy, I bet this is one of the culprits. He/she slowly hopped away and headed into the bushes.



I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.


    • There are a lot of them locally as we
      are adjacent to a National Park. Unfortunately, there is a certain amount of roadkill despite a 45km per hour speed limit after dark, but locals are very aware of the wildlife and care about it.
