Many times the blog posts have been about the many creatures who have from time to time taken up residency in the gardens or "nature sanctuary"" as I call, it outside my windows.
There was the coatamundi who fell in the fireplace chimney several times several years ago. Then the hissing opposum that sounded much much bigger then it probably was as it stationed itself on the ledge outside my bedroom wall of windows at night. Still there is the fluffy, big grey squirrel that scampers around. Assorted feral cats pass through or take a siesta from time to time on the chaises in the sun, but, the most fascinating creature lately, besides the golden leaves falling, is a BIG black bird.
It has decided to adopt me whenever I come home, or am sitting in the gardens or even when I'm on the other side of the wall of windows at my computer!
The big black bird does not bother the plethora of hummingbirds or the many species of butterflies in
the gardens these days. It is a Peaceful Kingdom within these walls. Everyone gets along!
Wouldn't it be nice if the peacefulness of the garden could be replicated everywhere?
