Koala Blue

Last night as the middle S Clark was driving me to choir as we pulled out of the drive she said "Ooh there's a duck on the lawn!"
We almost tried to take a photo, but couldn't overcome our lateness and clumsiness.
And anyway as we turned on to the road there was a koala about to brave the traffic.
We pulled over and fortunately they can belt along when they want to and so cleared the road in 2 seconds flat.
I often think about Edwin Muir's poem The Horses when I see a koala. The symbol/sign of the restoration of hope after disaster. Returning Koalas remind us that maybe we are being slightly more caring for our environment.
