The weather is warming up. We had 33°C/91°F today. The trees are losing their bark and my walking buddies have taken off their jackets. On my walk yesterday I saw a wallaby eating my neighbour's Gardenias, she let me get close and I could see she had a joey in her pouch with a foot sticking out.

The Scenic Rim is a region in South East Queensland. It was named one of the best places to visit in 2022 by the travel publication, Lonely Planet. The Scenic Rim was named for its "diversity of attractions" — with the guide pointing out its rainforest adventures, "the misty slopes of Mount Tamborine town packed with cafes, cellar doors and galleries" and "hatted restaurant Homage, which specialises in creative paddock-to-plate fare". It also called attention to Kooroomba Vineyard and Lavender Farm, SummerLand Camels, and the area's "epic landscapes and charming country towns offering a tasty slice of rural life, with cracking Queensland hospitality in plentiful supply too”
It was formed about 23 million years ago when a large volcano erupted. After years of erosion the area has very fertile soil and mountains covered in rainforests.
Our retirement village social secretary organised for us to go on a bus tour to part of this area. We went to Templin Historical Village near the country town of Boonah. This area is beautiful lush farmland with the forest clad mountains in the background.
The old Boonah Shire Building housed pianos and an organ as well as other household items. Bill is tickling the ivories.There were many old buildings housing equally old artefacts but too many to put here.
