Fun Day

First thing this morning two giant frogs arrived by tractor at the bedroom window:
which freaked the dogs out, but I laughed my head off.
I admired this pair of cute/ugly frogs in a junk shop a couple of months ago, but I had forgotten about them since. And now they are mine!

A bit later in the morning, a garden bed was also delivered by tractor:
A literal garden bed! I think I will plant it with succulents.

For lunch we went to Kambei Japanese restaurant. It is the first time we've eaten there, but I'm sure it won't be the last. The food was excellent.
Green tea ice-cream for dessert:

Then there was some family visiting. A steam train that was running between Ballarat and Lal Lal all weekend chuffed past us too quickly for me to grab a photo.

But I had plenty of time to photograph these critters:
A herd of cows being moved from one paddock to another. There were some quite young calves in amongst them. And a dog having a great time riding on the back of one of the quad bikes. The joys of country living! I don't miss living in the city.

It was a fun day. And apparently there is another gift to come tomorrow!

will you restore the couple of frogs?
I Will looking forward to see your succulents bed.
I don't miss living in the big city also. Living near nature is a gift in my life.

The garden bed is wonderful. So much fun happening at your place in the Country. Our land has a mid 18 hundreds stock route through it but not likely anyone would like to move their stock through urban Sydney these days.
Glad you had a lovely day.

What a fantastic birthday! Love the frogs, they remind me of the ones on either side of the path leading to my grandparent's huge vegetable garden.
