I've kept this blog, on and off, since 2006. In 2015 I used it to chart daily encounters, images, thoughts and feelings about volcanic basalt/bluestone in Melbourne and Victoria, especially in the first part of the year. I plan to write a book provisionally titled Bluestone: An Emotional History, about human uses of and feelings for bluestone. But I am also working on quite a few other projects and a big grant application, especially now I am on research leave. I'm working mostly from home, then, for six months, and will need online sociability for company!

Thursday Frog Blogging

How cool is it when you get to blog about a blog set up by a friend of your parents? Bushranger posts about birds and plants and books in the Geelong area, and has put up a magnificent photograph of a poddlebonk frog in her garden.

Our own frog, Herbert, is much shyer, and I've only seen him once, swimming in the stone basin underneath the tap. But I can hear him as I'm typing now. And have even thought I detected a different cry. Perhaps Herbert has found happiness amidst the violets?

I'm frogless to the best of my knowledge, but I do have my dad working on his wartime memories for some guest posts. I offered to set him up his own blog but he said he'd rather just colonise mine.

A rare thing: a colonisation to be anticipated with pleasure...

I think that if you had a frog, you would know. We set up a little boggy area in the garden, but I think Herbert spends most of his time near the water bowl under the tap.
