A day on the farm at Noggerup

Monday 3rd November,
Today is Bill’s Birthday and we have nothing planned just a quiet day at home and I promised I wouldn’t nag him today because it is his birthday but all bets are off tomorrow. Its hard to imagine but twelve months ago today we were in Houston and all the ladies in the restaurant for breakfast sang happy birthday to him.
Yesterday we drove to Noggerup to our friend’s (Farmer Dave & Gail) Farm. It is nestled in a truly picturesque setting overlooking lovely valleys and is a true tree change. We were joined by Dave’s parents and enjoyed a beautiful BBQ lunch. After catching up on all the gossip we donned boots and went for a pleasant stroll into the bush to look for the wildflowers growing in abundance. We were joined by a very shy racehorse goanna who when he spotted us coming zipped up the nearest tree. Gail and I settled down on a log amongst the blue leschenaultia to admire the view and Bill snapped us with the camera. We also took photos of the Kangaroo Paws growing nearby and some purple wild flowers we were unsure of the name. During our stroll we were met by a mother with two lambs, Bucky the resident horse and a group of black faced sheep. We jumped into the ute and went for a drive and again took some lovely photos of the farm from a hill that overlooked the property. Altogether a lovely relaxing day and we loved catching up with Gail & Dave. Thanks again for a lovely day.
Talk again soon Jan
