Yass, NSW

These photos were taken several weeks ago now - at the end of April on a Sunday drive to Yass. I'd never been to Yass and thought it a particularly lovely setting, especially the park-like river banks. A visit to Cooma Cottage at Marchmont was also included and you can see the images over here.

Feathered friends - Cockatoos

Taken from my lounge room window a few weeks ago. These feathered friends are regular visitors to my garden. I don't know what this tree is but it is deciduous and they love the little berries. It has quite a nice form but I can't help thinking it's a weed... The great thing about it is in summer when its green it looks lovely and protects the front of the house from the western sun in the afternoons and in winter when it sheds its leaves it allows the house to be bathed in the golden light of the setting sun. I love the lounge room in this light and I love the colours in these images.
