Can anyone ID this worm please?

You can see from the paddle pop stick that it is GIANT?

September birds

Our loveable crazy birdwatcher friend, Deb Metters, visited Wordwood in September 2018.  Here is a selection of her photos. For bird identification, see the Fauna page of this blog.



En plein air ablutions

The start of our shower and toilet. So far, just the deck and composting toilet. Walls, roof, water tank, gas heater and shower still underway. Pete promises me a 2018 finish. The toilet is now operational, if a bit drafty. Serendipitous find of an old enamel shower base at the Toowoomba Tip Shop today.

Book Tree


We are working on a new idea – a tree bookcase or book tree for beside the bed in The Nook. We harvested and debarked the tree last weekend. We found the perfect already dead-but-not-yet-rotten she-oak, so no trees will be harmed in the making. The idea is inspired by the Pinterest photo on the right.
