A new month.....

It's September and
It's Spring!
Today is the official first day of spring!
Some of our plants are celebrating.

We've had a beautiful day!
The temperature was 25°C (78°F)
Sky brilliant blue and cloudless....

This photo was from yesterday.
 We went to the river!
It's also Wattle Day.

 It's our National Emblem and our official colours
....Green and Gold.
(Yes, Bertie, that's where the yellow lycra cycle pants come from.)
It's on our Coat of Arms.
(Useless Fact 8787:  Australia is the only country that eats its National Animals--we think)


It's Father's Day!
We don't have a Dad, but we get to share our friends' dads.

So Happy Spring, Wattle Day and Father's Day!
Hope our US friends are having a great Labor Day Weekend.
Now, have we covered everything......oh, changed the calendar and Bella isn't interested.

  9. Changed the calendar and Bella's not intertested !!! Is she ill ?

  13. Yeah...I don't think I've ever sampled Bald Eagle...but as a Californian, our State bird is the quail. People do eat them - they are a bit of a delecacy, but I can't bring myself to - they are so beautiful in real life! Happy Spring!!

  19. Our mom loves your Wattle day the best. That is such a beautiful tree. We hope Bella's eyes are okay. Maybe she needs a trim so she can properly see the calendar?

    Millie & Walter

  20. OMD. When the title of the post said 'new month' I though it was gonna be a pic of Bella barkin' at the Calender again!! Maybe the pic is too much like the old one...
    Anyhu, looks like you guys had a FABulous day at the river!!
    Ruby ♥

  21. I think Bella was just too interested in celebrating to notice the calendar! :-)

  22. Happy Spring! We love spring. Wish we could do it over again...but we do love fall too :D

    Happy Wattle Day! I'm going to pretend that it is "Happy Waffle Day" because waffles make me happy!


  23. Wow - you'll be spending all day celebrating!

  24. How do you manage to get such cute pictures of the three dogs looking at the camera at the same time, are there treats involved ?

  25. Wow! You ladies have a lot going on there! Happy Spring, Father's Day and Wattle Day!

  30. Happy Spring to you! For us Canadians, we have a Labour Day holiday too. We like the facts about Australia! (except that you shouldn't eat animals)

  31. Wattle Day! Another reason I think I would love to live Downunder!

  32. Wattle day, I forgot all about that one!

    We went to Alex's house for Father's day. We had a great time playing with him. The peeps had a BBQ... But didn't share. Not cool.
