More pictures (to complete the paranomic view around the house -- starting from our badminton court in the north side sweeping360 degrees back to the north again) to show our 'attachments' to our bushland. Living in this environment is quite pleasant (if you like nice colour of trees and other flora, quiet from traffic and manmade background noises, mostly temperate around 15-30C, watch wildlife and change of seasons,...). But best of all is the calming affects we can feel - no stress, no extremes, no pressure to 'win', no rush to 'better life', and no worries ;-).
The long grass reminds us of 'Andy' the lawn mower (in the picture below). Andy passed away last year after some 18 years of service. His companion 'Yoyo' a sulphur crest cockatoo (in the left front) is still with us. People say Yoyo can be with us for some 80 more years (I think Yoyo will live long after we are gone ;-). But life is a wonderful living!
