Ambrose' turn

 Hello to all Mum's Blogger friends. This is Ambrose and at last I have a turn to post. Mum has been soooo busy but luckily for us she is home most of the time with that busy-ness. 

Kitties always like a box. Mum put this carton on the lawn to be thrown out. I posed beautifully for her to take a photo

Mama looks very stern; I am afraid of her...

As you can see, the Hedges pets are all very well and happy

All in a day's walk

 Good evening dear Blogger friends. I am here on the DAY. As always Skabby and I have managed a few walks despite the ongoing rain.

It always fascinates me to see a calf with different markings to its mother 

This calf was from a different cow - one with brown markings 

A man passed us on his most prized possession - his bicycle (see a dog in the grass) 
A brown cow on the other banks of the dam looks towards me and Skabby
Above the cow several Sacred Ibis took to the air
Cattle egret in the lush green grass 
Grey Heron on the opposite bank of the dam 
I loved the reflection in the water

Back home I photographed this critter in my bathroom before carrying it outdoors to safety. I'm not sure what it is...

Its taken me three days!

 Good evening dear Blogger friends. I have been trying to get this post up since Saturday 13 March!

However, here I am and I hope I am still able to link with Eileen's Saturday Critter post. As always, no matter what is forfeited, Skabby and I go for our daily walk. Last week we had several days where we got out early - 6.30am.

Early morning walk on the farm - who can ask for more? 
Sir Skabby plodging to his heart's content...
...with a good shake as he gets out
