A Bird and A Chook


A bird flew a long way to meet up with a chook to cool her down.

They spent time chatting and cackling, and binding quilts for the "Caring with Quilts" project. Had some help from Jules and Yellow.




The Chook thought she was a koala and climbed the gum tree to hang our quilts.....

I was so pleased with this photo. So ... Australian  ...... Blue skies and gum trees.  Great idea Chooky.....






There's nothing like some photography with old farm implements.....Mine is the red quilt and Chooky's the other. 

I might add we were looking out for black snakes while we were doing this.........There had been a few around.......



 


I am sure this will be loved by someone.....


I have to thank Mr Chooky for fixing my flat tyre which I was lucky enough or unlucky enough to get ........... whichever way you look at it .......right at shed near the house....

I had a lovely, lovely weekend.


 Bird for now

Would have loved to see a pic of Chooky getting up that tree! Great pics and lovely quilts...I am sure they will be very much appreciated. Always a good idea to keep an eye out for snakes...I am sure a bird and a Chook would make quite a nice meal for them!

Impressive of you two, glad to hear about the way to help in such a difficult fire.
Glad you did not get bitten by the awful black snakes!
