Winged creatures

The weather is turning, and our local friends are starting to laugh a lot more.

This Kookaburra was very keen to make my acquaintance.  He/she spent an hour perching on different parts of our decking, coming closer, each time, to the glass sliding door.  Eventually he/she was only about a metre away.  At the time Michaela and I were making a birthday cake for her birthday party – stopping every few minutes to say hello to our visitor, through the window.  Eventually we were standing in the open doorway, where I took this photo.  Isn’t she/he lovely.

This is the cake that we made, featuring Michaela’s “Littlest Pet Shop” Butterfly, and some mushrooms made with marshmallows and Pfeffernusse I “painted” with red icing.

I think they kind of match my new cardigan :-).

What winged creatures are hanging out in your world lately?

  1. We often have Rainbow Lorikeets visiting us and there are a couple of Eastern Rosellas too. But …… yesterday I was in Lilydale, getting off Puffing Billy, when we spotted two rosellas. A crimson one and another variety I couldn’t place. The train conductors were sitting down to lunch and feeding them right out of their hands. So tame – so amazing.

  2. I *loooove* the pfeffernusse mushrooms, they are super-cute! I think I’ll have o find an excuse to include mushrooms/toadstools on the next cake I decorate 🙂

    I also love that shot of you and Michaela, it is particularly lovely.
