Oh dear, it’s been a while, so I took a walk. Let’s catch up…

About EllaDee's daleleelife101.blog

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.

  1. I have real mixed views about street art. On one hand, some of the art work is amazing, and can really breath life into a derelict building, but on the other, when it is daubed onto a beautiful building, it then becomes ugly.

    The black swans are beautiful, a native of Australia I understand, though I could be wrong.

    On a recent holiday to Dawlish, a Devon town well know for its black swans, which I understsnd were imported from Australia many years ago. I’d only left my camera back in the motorhome, so didn’t get any photos at all 😦

    • Street art in this area is well accepted, and a lot of it is deliberate & approved, as opposed to graffiti. In some cases it has become a commercial art form (& desirable as home decor), which I have mixed feelings about. Everyone hates those destructive tags.

      I believe the black swan are native. I love the white swans as well. I saw a TV program last night about Oxfordshire featuring the Thames & the lochs, on which were white swans… a part of many fairy tale books I read as a child 🙂

    • Thank you. The cat looked like an Egyptian Basque cat guarding a tomb, except it was guarding the backyard & laneway, which it took very seriously as you can see by the look on its face 🙂
