Birds in a dead tree

I walked the dogs up the hill behind the house and sat on another dead tree, minding the ants, to draw this one which had a magpie and two rosellas in it.
Came home and more or less coloured it.
I am slowly getting back into walking although at the moment the house is being re organised and having an autumn clean. John has been on the roof blowing all the leaves out of the gutters in preparation for THE RAIN if it doesnt come I think the weather fellows will be hung drawn and quatered as they have said we will get at least 20 mls. I do hope they are right.

A contradiction - a dead tree, dry land, but colourful birds.
Here the birds are noisy once again and the grass has greened up.Hope you will get a huge rain soon.
It's Anzac Day and we have been watching the TV programs. Seems that thousands of young people are interested to remember the awfulness of war by attending ceremonies.

I like the colours on the trunk - really gives the feel of your eucalyptus trees

Oh, I do hope you get the rain - we had a little yesterday but it only filled one wheelie bin. This is a nice drawing - gives the feel of the landscape.
