Blue Monday – Rosemount Estate   25 comments

Happy Blue Monday Everyone!

I was looking through my pictures from our trip to Australia three years ago and came across this picture of a very blue building. This is a winery we visited while touring the wine country north of Sydney.  I especially liked the windows of this building.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Merry, merry king of the bush is he
Laugh, Kookaburra! Laugh, Kookaburra!
Gay your life must be

My dear sister Ellen has solved a mystery for me today!  When we were in Australia, we heard these birds that sounded as though they were conversing and laughing in their own bird speak- it was hilarious!  While walking and exploring a rain forest, we came upon said birds and I took some pictures of them, wondering what kind of birds are these?  Well, today my sister has answered my question!  Love it! Check out her research on the Eucalyptus tree and the Kookaburra!
