The temperature in Adelaide will reach 42 degrees C the next two days and whilst it’s quaint to see this in my very own back yard, it does indicate that the Koala is dehydrated and stressed and it is not natural or normal for the Koala to drink water
Earlier this year, several properties in and around Joslin came up for auction and I seriously considered making an offer as I felt that perhaps I should “downsize”. My current property in which I have lived since about 1986, is more than 120 m long and about 15,5m wide. It backs onto the linear park and the creek, it’s often called a river but that is a misnomer. Anyway, eventually I decided whilst I am still physically and mentally agile, that rather than sell my present property I would add a retreat down the back which would look over river from the back fence. I have called it my “music room” as it would certainly be space that I retreat to, to listen to music or to play my recorder. As always the pictures and plans will hopefully demonstrate the concept much more clearly than words.
Lots of glass. Not sure that the finished structure will have a RED roof!
The glass blocks are part of the bathroom/shower recess.
The view from the back!
Just around the corner from my home, Freda the female koala is up (or is that down), a gumtree!
A burst of pink. Amaryllis Lillies also known as Easter Lillies because they typically flower at or near Easter.
They have suddenly all blossomed in my back yard in the last week.
The other pictures show me crossing the Finish Line at Victor Harbor in the 2016 TDU! Totally unrelated to pink flowers but I had to have something else to boast about.
