Parrots, galahs, magpies and sparrows

The birds have found the feeding tray on the terrace and at the moment the galahs are the boss. King parrots try and edge in but have to wait for a break. Sparrows are way down on the pecking order.

With the water view  back, the weather showing a possibility of spring , my bird attracting feeding a success -life is good. The little devils are up in the gum tree in the morning just waiting for the seed to be spread on their feeding tray. My guests can feed the birds then relax inside and watch them squabble and jostle for space. With the weather improving my weekend visitors in the Bed and Breakfast were able to light the outside fire and sit on the terrace in the evening – Spring is almost here and Tallangatta is at its best.

The lake was so beautiful on Thursday morning with the sunrise glowing though the mist-2015-08-22 08.23.54

Its coming back

The Bed and Breakfast has continued to attract guests – Melbourne to  NSW ski resorts being the main visitors. Tallangatta 4 hours from Melbourne then 4 hours to the snow.

I had hoped that as I was a way for a wedding in July our weir water may have returned in my absence as it ‘disappeared’ last time I was attending a wedding in March. It was not to be. August however  has seen it returning. So our beautiful green valley with the Mitta Mitta River snaking its way down to Albury is disappearing  for yet another year and the water vista is back be it still not 50% full. I have lost the river flats for the dogs to run on, but having the water back is just so great.

Rabbits are starting to have an impact on the front garden. They are nibbling my newly planted bushes. They are very cheeky. I watch them from the front window hopping gently across the grass without a care in the world. So ‘plant guards’ are the new design feature of the front garden. Ugly but necessary for a while

Much more welcome guests on the terrace – ParrotsP1160288
