Visitors...

Photobucket
When I moved here to Toowoomba a couple of months ago, this little wallaby came to visit. The first time I saw her, she was stretched out on the grass, looking like a piece of toffee, hence the name 'Taffy'. Taffy did enjoy nibbling on pumpkin seed bread.

Over the course of a few weeks I noticed Taffy becoming more rotund. Was the little feeding I was doing too much? Was I creating an obese native creature?

Then out popped a little head. 'Pumpkin' had shown herself (or himself, who knows?).

My first YouTube upload! I promise they'll get better...

We still see wallabies every morning on the way to work. They are fast losing their green belt. I never tire of seeing them in the ntural surrounds.

How absolutely adorable. You don't want a family of possums for your roof do you? Thought it was worth an ask ...

By the sounds and look of it you're like living in the jungle now! Cute Taffy and Pumkin, i played with the kangaroos once in the wildlife park and i was SO surprised at how GENTLE they are. Even the really big ones, i was afraid they'd box me in the face, but they are so kind and lovely. Love kangaroos and wallabies!
Thanks for featuring my dress!:)

So sweet. It must be really beautiful to live in an area where you are able to see a wallaby.
