It's all about the eggs.......

The Guinea fowl lay eggs in odd spots but this one I found in the dirt in the back yard...... Tucked under a grass butt.....lol
By accident I mean by scaring the guninea fowl out of the garden and the Guinea fowl in turn scaring the life of of me I found a new nest........tucked in the centre of some agapanthus......they love the Aggie's......makes great nest spots.......
Let's see if they nest there......
Finally the new arucana started laying her blue eggs except she missed the memo about finding a nest to lay in and started laying them on the ground.........clearly I go in there with my eyes closed as she had laid 12 eggs already and I had not noticed then scattered in the corner of the chook house on the ground......... So I had gone in there already 10 days (I miss an odd day) and not seen them on the ground........
 
Life is out off control.......
Oh I took some eggs to give a friend when I visited and scrabbled a few in the car.... Omg lucky it was not to bad a mess to clean up......But I will be packing then heaps better next time....... 
Catch later......

A matter of minutes.....

The other morning I was up at "sparrows fart" and on the road...........
my reward was the sunrise.........
there was a hint it was going to be lovely...........
5 mins later...............it was trying to burst thru......
another 5 minutes later...........
this was to the right.........the colours are not truly captured but it is a stunning light that only last for a short  time..........
5 mins later again.........up behind the clouds.........the rays all shining out........
random rose flowering in my garden............
I love nature..........except for the dust storm on Thursday night..........I went away Friday morning so still to clean up.........it was so thick the dust is deep my friends...........bring on some more rain......
Catch you later......
