I hope above Australia that everyone is enjoying beautiful Spring weather like down under we are enjoying a lovely Autumn coolness.
Australia has just sent 4 of the Koala " bear " to Singapore Zoo as a gift to mark Singapore's 50th Anniversary this year of Australia and Singapore Diplomatic Relations. Our Koalas are a national icon in terms of Flora and Fauna and have left for Singapore travelling on Australian carrier Qantas Airlines.
Koala joeys are actually a marsupial as the mothers carry the babies in a pouch on her belly.
Australia has listed them as a threatened species affected by climate change.
Australia's Foreign Minister Julie Bishop gifting the Koalas.
You can tell I love the cuddly Koalas as I always have one on my blog header.
We are having school holidays and 2 weeks holiday from my sewing class group and I have been doing some grandchild minding .
