Munchkin helping to mulch the veggie garden.

Green and purple - one of my favourite colour combinations!

Looking across the park to the College of Law building.

My delicious smoked salmon salad and berry yoghurt. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. On the final day, after the exams were over, I was invited to a local pub for a drink. I decided I'd rather luxuriate in one last salmon salad instead :D

Crossing the icy wastes - a snail on my frozen windscreen.

The baby plums are growing plumper.

The veggie garden - all the seeds have sprouted - beans and corn and tomatoes.

Munchkin (finally) takes an interest in books (other than eating them :P)

A Jacky Lizard checks out the neighbour's council clean-up pile.

Wombat's tree climbing moves to the next level :D

Doodle brings out her new family of kittens to meet us for the first time.

Seems I'm not the only one who admires the clover :D

Munchkin & Nanna - definite favouritism between these two... hardly surprising as Munchkin was born 2 days before Nanna's 87th birthday :D

Admiring the clover.

FREEDOM!!!!!! (Munchkin making a run for it...)

Ladybird, ladybird, where have you been?

Lazing under the hazelnut tree on a sunny afternoon.

Wombat's drawing of an aeroplane.

The hunter and the hunted. (Wombat with his own camera.)

A very cheeky blue-tongue lizard.

This is what happens when a Munchkin walks into the middle of a 'meat ant' nest and stands there! Lots of screaming, and the quickest undressing you have ever seen, followed by a naked sit in the pram while Mum picks ants off your clothes.

From garden to plate. The radish crop is being greatly enjoyed - by ME (no-one else likes them hehehehe)

Slightly out of focus, but I had to include this one - Munchkin has reached the "Look" stage.

A little skink basking in the sun on a street bench beside the town hall. I LOVE the contrasting textures in this one :D

I have been getting up very early (4am) to study. Wombat often wakes up before dawn to join me. I created a "snuggle spot" in a corner of the playroom, where he will sometimes agree to lie and watch out the window while I keep working. Sometimes he even goes back to sleep!

My continuing mission to get a good photo of a blue heron... they are SO shy. At least this is an improvement on last time (which, by the time I shot the pic, was just a grey blur above the tree tops)!

At our playdate... Munchkin is fearless when the dogs are let out. He loves them and wants to get close - the bigger the better! The other boy is our friend, not Wombat - Wombat is still extremely cautious in such situations. He is hiding behind me.

The "sprouts / seeds" on the spiky plant continue to fascinate us. Here they are starting to grow in bunches while still on the plant.
