Noisy Friar Birds, Bottlebrushes and Spring

You know spring is here when the bottle brushes are flowering and the Noisy Friar birds descend on the town. They never stop chattering to one another. As far as I can see one bottlebrush is exactly the same as the other so what is there to chatter about.

This is the most beautiful time in Tallangatta. There are people swimming and having  picnics, you can feel summer coming. The Lake is looking beautiful though not full and fishermen are out in boats as  well as fishing from the shore.

Our next big event is the fifty’s festival – 24th -26th October. Rock and Roll music, 50’s cars and the local shops dress up their windows with items from the era. I’m a product of the 60s and 70s long-hair, beads and Beatles, but my house was moved from Old Tallangatta  and rebuilt with bedrooms added in the fifties so it’s great to relive that period of  our towns history. In another part of Queen Elizabeth Drive, the other half of my house lives. It used to be a boarding house in the old town but got split into two houses in the move.
