WALK TO THE LAKE

We went for a short walk through Daisy Hill Forest to Dennis Lake.
 At the gate of our village a wattle tree is in bloom. 

On the grassy patch there was a wallaby and joey as well as a cockatoo.

It was peaceful at the lake. Lake Dennis is named after the pioneering farming family, which opened up this area and built the dam wall.



 We returned to the forest path to take us home.
 Moss on a rotting log.

 The afternoon sun lights up the palms. Then it was home and a nice cup of tea.

  3. I love the wattle. We have so many varieties over here in the west. I see you are in Queensland. One of these days I will get there. Enjoy the rest of your week. I am joining you at Communal GLobal.

  4. Lots to see, even on just a short walk. The wattles in the bush are blooming here and they looked spectacular last weekend.

  7. Wonderful nature walk -- some of it looks like what we might see in Florida. But that certainly does NOT include the wallaby or the cockatoo-- i'm not sure I'll ever get over being amazed at what you see in your "backyard" (so to speak).

  15. I remember my visit to Australia years ago when my children were very young. Wild parrots cockatoos, buffalo, and jackels as we explored the outback. You photos have brought me there again.
