Randy and Gene live in the Lower Hutt suburb of Avalon.

"Brothers Randy and Gene chat to Grey Cat through the cat flap (social distancing). Randy and Gene run a muck through the Avalon neighbourhood with their pal who often sneaks in and eats their food. 
Randy likes to watch keep watch of all the goings on in the neighbourhood, he lives in Ferretti Grove, Avalon with his brother Gene and human mum and dad (Kaye and Alex). Randy is a very friendly and curious little boy and enjoys making new friends - I know this due to the text messages I get about his whereabouts - usually napping at the neighbour's place."

Tūī were out in full force, as they fed on the blossoms!
Kereru, as usual, were everywhere including in a wheelbarrow!
The sparrows were caught having a good old dust bath.
Mr Duck was out by himself and full of chatter as I walked by him.
Although it was still very cold, it was nice to feel the rays of the sun on me!
