About EllaDee's

After a decade of living in tiny apartments in the inner-city of Sydney, Australia with my husband referred to in my posts as the Gorgeous One (G.O.) while I worked in corporate-legal and the G.O. in civil earthworks we relocated 500 kilometres north in December 2015 to our home in the Nambucca Valley to follow our dream of living simply and creatively. We travelled around Australia in 2016. Now we work on our 1930’s house, have a vegetable garden and a dog plus share a flock of backyard chickens with our neighbour. These days I’m a horticulture student, something I dreamed of doing for many years. From time to time I write about day-to-day life, past & present, people & places, and take snapshots with my smart phone. Copyright 2011-2017. All content of,, & is copyright.

  1. One of my endearing memories of Sydney (and Aus in general) was what we called the rubbish bin birds. Not ducks but those white ones who always perched on the bins. Didn’t see ducks though, but s/he is lovely 🙂

    • Thanks. ED images is where I indulge the hippy grandma persona who resides in the sunny corner of my subconscious. She likes colours, shiny, and if given free reign, tacky 😉

  2. We have a stretch of road near here, where it is uncommon to see cars just stopped on it, they stop to let the ducks cross the road, I love it that everyone, well nearly everyone does it. Love your photo.
