Must have been a doozy of a storm. Shame to see all those busted up trees. Guess that's Gods way of keeping things trimmed down.

Usually tell people that I can't sit down anywhere on my land where I'm not looking at something to do.

Great to see your wheat coming up. Good feeling, isn't it, to see hard work payoff.

About time for an update!
We have had a fair bit of rain and warm weather here, so everything has grown-including the weeds!! We put the sheep into one of the sanctuary areas to eat down the weeds before they dry off and become a fire hazard!

Why thank you....
Have been making mulberry jam....one for me, one for the bowl....one for me....one for the bowl.....

We had a late lamb born yesterday- quite a surprise as the ewe is only a year old...plus it is VERY late in the year for Wiltshires to have a lamb....not that we are complaining!

Burnsy...the space is great and provides lots of opportunities....also lots of work!! Sometimes if we get too busy it all easily gets away from us, and then we have to have a big effort to regain status quo :(

Great growing season at the moment....

Although a lot of bush hasn't grown back after the big bushfire...the Balga have loved it and started flowering!

Most of the paperbarks have also come back, and a lot of weeds/grasses for the sheep to eat!
