image Garden Visitor Hide and Seek

You can’t see me!

This morning I went outside to photograph some leaves and bark for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. While I was photographing the big gum tree, I heard a thump. That usually means there is an animal in the garden and sure enough when I looked over the fence there was a pademelon hiding near the lemon tree. I kept very quiet so he/she wouldn’t panic and hop away. This is the best photo I could get because I had changed back to my standard lens. If you can see that gap under the fence behind him, that’s where they usually get out. It’s hard to believe they can get under that but they do. You can at least see the tail better than in yesterday’s photos.



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.
