This and That

Noisy visitors this morning:
About 25 sulphur-crested cockatoos, Cacatua galerita, (and a couple of galahs, Eolophus roseicapillus) dropped by as I was eating breakfast. It wasn't easy to get a good shot of them. This is what happens when a dog jumps up on the window seat to get a better look:
Cockatoos taking off!

None of my photos would have earned a place here:
There were some lovely photos, and even the primary-school children had taken better wildlife shots than mine this morning!

Next stop was a small quilt show in Creswick, where this was my favourite:
Kaleidoscopic stars, in purples which of course look bluer here. The card pinned to it didn't have the maker's name or the pattern name, so I can't give credit where it is due. It was for sale for $1500 though.

This made me happy later in the day:
One of my quilts finally hanging in the hallway.


  1. So which one of the birds was keeping cockatoo while the others grazed?

  2. Your quilt has found a perfect spot in that hallway - love it!
