Our clocks go back tonight, so the evenings will be getting shorter.
The red berries on the Nikau palm trees surrounding our property have turned bright red, a sign that summer is nearly over. The tree rats and possums eat the berries from the tree closest to the house and we get the white/grey nibbled pips dropped all over the deck. It is like walking on marbles out there. At night time we hear them pinging off the wood, like a metronome: Ping, Ping, Ping.
Noodle - looking surprised/alarmed, which is her normal look these days.
