Our Festival was so much fun this year-with doggie parade- where did all the dogs come from? it was amazing! The BUMS ukulele Club -had a uke school all week- what a success that was! It surprised us all- our Fairy cave- our PIrates. Bush Balladeers were wonderful- the Bluegrass, the Poetry- the comedy- But as always the Pipe Band was one of my favourites.  Also our brilliant Cape Bryon Celtic Dancers- with their magical costumes and spectacular dances ! they truly reached a new high this year!  Too many highlights to mention here, but do go to the Web Site-

Lots of great photo's !

For those of you who like me enjoy growing things, planting things and are into all that stuff! Go to my Landcare web site have just added new photo's and updates showing (before & after) photo's of our tree corridors, plantations, and whats happening here at Bony Mountain. I get a big kick out of planting trees and watching them grow and creating the perfect habitat for all our native critters , our koalas, achidnas, lizards, & our beautiful birds! 

MY FAVOURITE CASUARINA flowers with huge bracts of crimson flowers every spring!




An exciting project for me over the next few years will be my Musical Production I have written and created for children. It is being considered by some local theatre groups and hopefully will include a cast of thousands! It includes Scarecrows,Sunflowers, Twinkling Stars, Koalas, Kangaroos, Cockatoos, and of course the magic moon.
