Last Saturday Husband and I took Lila for a jaunt through Toohey Forest. The forest serves as a sort of lab for the ecology students and Husband knows it well. As we are both farm-raised types, we feel a desperate need to surround ourselves with trees whenever possible. We find city-dwelling upsetting and bide our time until we can move away.
As Lila frolicked in the path ahead of us, Husband spotted a funny little parrot. He’d never seen one like it before- we were transfixed. He came home and discovered it is a Pale-Headed Rosella. He said we’re lucky to have seen it, not many Rosellas live in Toohey Forest. I love Queensland’s wild parrot populations.
I first saw a pretty bird, then I saw a pretty tail coat. Could you just imagine a gray-blue coat with bright red lining under the tails? So sweet.
Next up- Simplicity 2758 skirt: knee-length with an inverted pleat. I needed something simple to cleanse the palate before tackling another difficult project. I should manage to finish this one today.
