Merry be SUSAN!

Many, many thanks for taking time to visit Boorganna and to leave such great feedback.

Trying to find "different" angles is becoming a hobby of mine. 8-)

Crikey CARLA!

Maximum thanks for calling in at Boorganna for some bird watching and for your really encouraging feedback.

They have the sharpest eyes! From way up in a tree they can spot a little grub in the grass that I can't even see, fly down and nail it in one.
