Park life

The sunshine was so bright yesterday that I couldn’t see if I’d managed to capture this little critter. His shell was about the size of my smallest finger nail; impressive camouflage against the bark of the gum tree!

Red and green must be seen

My great local is Morton Park;
For walking Stan and birds to hark
Smell the Oleander tree,
Flowers, palms and shrubs to see,
Tall gums, gingers, lilies too;
Sunshine, clouds and skies of blue.
Space for picnics and to play,
Shortcut home or sit and stay.
The shades of red and green
Can’t be missed, must be seen!
