With more time on my hands these days, this gives me something to do. I hope you get some pleasure, along with me, in sharing this new stage of my life.

Looking After Charlie - Day 16. Visitors From Mudgee for Lunch. Friday 24th August.

Friends, Irwyn and Rosemary from Mudgee, paid a visit today for lunch. The weather was not at it's best, overcast skies, no sun and a strong cool breeze made our little walk along the Tony Doyle to the Warrah Lookout not the most pleasant of outings.
The Waratahs were nearly out, enough to gives us something to admire. The park ranger we met while there gave us a bit of an insight into the amount of flower theft that takes place when the Waratahs are in full spring bloom. Even after spraying the plants blue, they were still stolen.
There was a lot of plants in flower, including a Glossodia sp. orchid.
