Cudlee Creek

Just had a delightful encounter with all sorts of nature - birds, wildlife, dogs, flowers etc
during a weekend away at Cudlee Creek (don't you love the name?!) in the
Mt Lofty Ranges, so just have to share the experience with you all

This koala seemed to be having a lovely snooze . . .

until the wind came up and he decided it might be a good idea to hang on !

Breathtaking Lilac in the front garden and driveway ... mmmmh !

. . . and this is Trixie (one of 2 Kelpies sharing their home with me) - such beautiful natures.

A pretty array of flowers blooming on the property

. . . ditto . . .

The delightful laugh of the Kookaburra echoed around throughout my stay

At sunset this kangaroo appeared in the grassland opposite

. . . and this is Koko, the other Kelpie who took care of me !

Despite its name of "Patterson's Curse", the bloom on this thistle is very pretty
( obviously insects also find it fascinating!)


One of several Ibis in the nearby fields

. . . and a budding Callistemon

Just growing along the roadside . .

Ditto !

"Just Joey" in the front garden

I hope you've enjoyed the outing.

What a lovely series of photographs of wildlife (and tamelife!). "The Koalas Of Cudlee Creek" would make a nice series for children's TV.

I so enjoyed seeing the koala and kangaroo --sights we don't see here in our area, and all the beautiful flowers you saw!

Lovely pics! We were in Australia in May...Sydney to Darwin on a cruise...unfortunately we only saw the kangaroos from a distance and no Koala's!!! But we saw lot's of crocs!!!

So many beautiful photos, I hardly no where to start. So I'll start at the beginning, and will probably get distracted after that: I can't resist koalas, and kangaroos and wobblies and all.
A treat for sore eyes. Thank you.
