Happy Valentine’s Day from a secret friend


We have a tall, dark, 6 foot stranger living in our garden. We thought we heard him a few weeks ago. We thought we saw him a few days ago. Then today, here he was staring straight at us. He kept looking at us as we stood in shock. He had never been so close before. We were a little frightened at his stillness. He was hungry and thirsty; he was big and strong. He looked straight at us today, on Valentine’s day. He even left a few deposits!

Due to the recent bush fires in our area, kangaroos are coming closer and closer to houses seeking a little fresh grass. Colin came out to look; Whitey cat was too use smelling the flowers to notice.

See you later big guy, but please don’t surprise me behind the camelias!

  1. How cool. (it is a neat thing right?) We only get to see kangaroo’s in the zoo! One of the reasons I love the internet. To see summer weather while it is is cold here…and to see kangaroos in someones back yard! 🙂

    It was really a surprise to have such a large kangaroo so close to the house. We often see them jumping across the road, which is quite dangerous, but not often in broad daylight in our garden. Glad you enjoyed this special event! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
