Snappy Friends challenge - bark!

Over the weekend we moved to Melbourne. (Finally!) It's quite strange being "between" houses. We are staying in a caravan park in our tent. (The kids think we are on holidays, but it feels a tad "homeless" to me!) Chookyblue has started up the Snappy Friends challenges again and my caravan park has "bark" so I am off and running.




The gum trees with all the bark hanging off them are amazing. Birds love these trees because the hanging bark offers a wealth of homes for insect life. The last photo shows the casing of an insect of some description attached to the bark.

I read bark and thought of a dog bark :)
it's that time of year, there are trees shedding bark everywhere, revealing their new skins.

Oh enjyoy the break from vacuuming and dusting....get out the camp chair and stitch! I think the kids have the right idea treating it as a holiday....my biggest put-off with camping is the trek to the ablution block! Hope you aren't too far away! Great pics....hope the house hunting is going well.

I like the way you say "I moved to Melbourne on the weekend " like I might say " I cooked bacon and eggs last weekend "....

Enjoy camping out. I hope you find a wonderful new home soon. This is a new adventure.

Mmmm camping....... it is not my idea of fun. Hope you are not homeless for long. Love the 3rd photo.

Camping .... now that sounds like my idea of relaxation .. so yeah I would think of it as a holiday ... don't worry you'll find something soon enough. The photos are great ... what sort of camera do you have ... point and snap or SLR

your homeless comment had me laughing out loud! you are so damn funny. I'm glad you have sort of moved - it's a step in the right direction. Hope you find a more permanent place to live very soon. I love camping too but it can get old. Beautiful photo of the tree.

Love those gum trees! Would they be the same one Koalas love? You must think of yourself on holiday. It will probably be over all too soon! x
