Kookaburras in the garden

These two were making a lot of noise out in the yard this morning so I took the chance and managed to get a nice photo of them. Mum and child I think as one was feeding the other. Another of the Kingfisher family
On the way back to the house I saw that Nanna's Rose was flowering. That's not really it's name but we call it that. My Grandmother had it growing in her garden and I know my Mum and her older sister took cuttings and had it in their gardens. Mum gave me a piece a long time ago and I think it is the only one in the family now. It's a nice family tradition I think.
And finally this is where we are up to with the Herb Garden. Most of the beds are dug up and half have new soil. There is a tap on the side of the middle bed as well.

For those of you who were concerned or just freaked out (fancy screaming in your office!!) the Spider has disappeared from the Loo this morning.

Hi Jackie,

I agree, it's lovely to wake up to the sound of birds in the morning- Enjoy the Kookaburras! BTW, that's a very pretty rose- What a gorgeous colour! It's good to hear the spider has moved on too! Have a great weekend! Barb x
