Someone's been digging in my garden

Every now and again we get to see some
amazing creatures wandering around our yard.
At the moment we are very lucky to have
the biggest echidna I have ever seen
(I'd say he'd be at least 35cm long - almost 14")
He forages around in our front garden in the evenings.
We know he's arrived when we hear
a bit of shuffling and snuffling.
He moves slowly around
and doesn't seem to mind us 
coming out to have a look
at him from a distance.

It is such a thrill and a joy to see 
a healthy and content native animal
wandering freely around and knowing
we are able to provide a bit of space
and hopefully safe haven for
him to thrive and survive.

Concertina Child - Covered

A little while ago, 
when I was doing a lot of 
altered book covers, I played around a bit with
metal, nails and text in metal. 
Now, I know metal and paper aren't really good
partners for a long term relationship
as far as archival qualities go,
but sometimes
short term friendships can be
extremely interesting.

I had a hankering to put a metal cover
with a bit of text onto my
concertina child and
this is the initial outcome.

Still thinking.........................
