I had a grand adventure on the weekend which involved a trip to Barker’s Creek, home of fellow blogger, Bev and her lovely husband Phil. Bev (aka fozziemum) blogs about life in rural Australia and the adventures of their many and varied critters. This visit, although very social (check out the sumptuous morning tea all hand-made by Bev) had a secret reason attached to it. Bev and Phil had something for me which of course involved yarn but wasn’t yarn. Although they gave me 3 bags of wool too. Confused? What do you think it was? Well I will keep my special secret to myself for a bit longer and tell next time. Meanwhile enjoy the photographs of a truly remarkable place.
Going clockwise we have Dinnermintz , Cleo, Pickles and Marbles. You can find out more about them here.
Gorgeous Forrest giving Aunt Sharon a huge grin.
Bev and her 3 sheepies, Jock, Felix and Oscar. The bottom picture shows some yarn bombing they did themselves! For information about them and their care click on Fleecy Friday!
I couldn’t possibly do justice with a few words and pictures of this most extraordinarily beautiful place. The house was county style but with 2015 comforts and mod cons. The outside had blurred boundaries because of the trees and undulations. A fence around the actual house was separated from the big bush block by a fence that offered panoramic views via (I believe) perspex. There are often Kangaroos about but they stayed hidden from me. I must have made them shy. The last photo is of the dam which looks like a peaceful place to sit especially at sunset. Thanks Bev and I will be showing something very special that came from here next time! What do you think it is?
