Sunday, September 1st

Today is Wattle Day.

The floral emblem of Australia

Of course most of the wattle has come and gone by now.

Wattle Day is the official first day of Spring
in Oz.
This year, it is also Father's Day.
We don't have a dad, but we have 'river' dads:
Ron, John and Craig
(they're always good for a scratch or two.)
It's time for new life
warmer temperatures
and, perhaps
Full story next time.


  1. BOL BOL AT FIRST I READ WAFFLE...I must be hungry
    Happy Wattle day and what a beautiful bloom the Wattle Tree has.

    OH MY DOGS. Roxy is that a mini you? OMDs...It even has a matching patch...Oh precious. I await the REST OF THE STORY. I'm seeing a bit of a sly look in your eyes and maybe a wee Roxy Smile!!
