A walk along Duck Creek, a winter storm and a new path.

Barb and her hubby came over on Tuesday so we went for a walk along Duck Creek she took lots of pictures and I took a few her are always better than mine. 
 Our local creek, it's pretty down here when kept clean  once it was a dumping ground for all sorts of things but they have a team of people who clean it up a couple times a year so much better than it was. 
 But we did find clothes in a tangled mess not sure if someone was living here or this was a bag of stuff dumped here.
 I like these bull rushers but the do slow the flow down and I think the flow is pretty slow to start with.
 A outlet drain from somewhere maybe  storm water.
 Wild orange sky lots of thunder and lighting and maybe 10 drops of rain but it looked like we would get a downpour.

 I put cement blocks down for my path the wood just rotted away.
 Angus is always checking out anything you are doing not very helpful but often in the way.

 This was the wood all crumbled away, it was treated pine so white ants don't eat it but it still rots away if wet for long.
 At least the cement won't rot.

 My assistant is taking a his smoko as he doesn't smoke sleeping in the sun is prefered.
 The last of the compost bins are gone
 Just bits of wood now
 And it's getting dark so I'm heading inside.
 Cold here at night.

 Thats all for now.


  1. You have been busy and productive. The path looks good.
    Glad the creek was cleaned up - and I do like your (un)helper.

    1. Time to do garden work winter time cooler and no spiders.

    Thank goodness you had a snooperviser - imagine where the path might have gone if he hadn't been there!!! &*> YAM xx

  3. Hello, Angus does look like a supervisor. Your garden path is looking great. Love the pretty orange sky. Enjoy your day!

  4. Amazing how all gives in to nature in the end. Wood crumbles and bodies sag. Sigh.

  5. Angus! Helper extraordinaire! Love the pretty, although ominous, orange sky. Jane

  6. So good that the creek is there and people care enough to clean up the areaa Its been like Spring here the last few days, great photos of thet orange sky!

  7. No ducks on Duck Creek. It is probably one of those creeks that rise quickly when it rains and then falls quickly once the rain stops. Good work with the paving and what a spectacular sky.

    1. Sometimes there are ducks.

  8. I love that wild orange sky :)
    The concrete path will be much better, the wood was pretty, but concrete will last much longer.

  9. You have been busy … nice to see all of your photographs.
    That orange sky really was quite orange!

    All the best Jan

  10. Wow !!! absolutely fantastic blog. I am very glad to have such useful information.


  11. It's upsets me when people use creeks or parklands as dumping grounds. No respect for nature and some things are harmful to the wildlife too. It's nice that other people do run clean up programs. I think we have some in Brissie too. I rarely see bulrushes around our local creeks anymore. I remember seeing lots of them when I was a kid.

    What a gorgeous orange sky!

    Nice path! Angus is so cute checking it all out. Agreed, the concrete path will last longer.

    Our days are warming up, the evenings too, but we still get coolish mornings. 4°C expected tomorrow morning. I will be sad to see winter leave — it's way too short for me. :)

  12. Looks cooler there than here, beautiful pictures. I bet those babies have grown by now


The driveway lots of greenery and no cars.

Well not much has changed  so I'm still showing you the garden as I have been busy in it, the weather is just wonderful at th...
