ON THE ROAD — By the time I left the shady home of the Western Bower Birds at the Olive Pink Botanical Gardens the sun was high and the temperature climbing towards 40 degrees centigrade. Nevertheless Jan and I took the stone steps leading up to the top of Annie Myers Hill, at the back of the gardens. Near the top I disturbed a Euro (Macropus robustus) who hopped away only a short distance before deciding sensibly it was best to just rest in what shade was on offer. The gorgeous doe dozed quietly and then a little head popped out of the pouch for a look around. After a short inspection of the surroundings the big joey went back into the pouch to continue napping in cozy comfort.
