The adventures of Fe & Chris

A message from rural Australia

Two metres high, on a corrugated steel fence:


Curiously, we haven’t seen any rabbits. We’ve seen lots of Cane Toads though, and they seem to have made for most of the other large-ish beasts around here. As they are exotic, it is fair game to jump on them. In the markets of Darwin you can buy stuffed Cane Toads in any pose you like. Lovely.

We’re in Tennant Creek and heading South to Alice Springs. Must fly…

Now strangely in yesterday’s Guardian (easy) crossword the answer to a clue was “A town like Alice”. Sophie found some lovely Australian fabrics in a patchwork shop in Alice Springs for me , with aboriginal designs, and birds and things like geckos and wattle on them. I impressed Joy Shane long ago when she took me to the New England flower show (when there was thick snow on the ground outside) because the first thing we saw were six ‘wattle’ trees in huge pots. I said Mimosa, she said Acacia, and I said ‘the Australians call them Wattle” - she was impressed - sprays of yellow flowers like little balls for the uninitiated!

Up Tennant Creek without a paddle ?

We saw some wabbits! There were a few munching on the lawn of the guesthouse we stayed in in the Blue Mountains. Saw one Cane toad near where we stayed north of Cairns as I was driving to get some milk for Freya, a group of folk were standing around a toad by the road. I imagine it might have been a non-toad quite soon after.
