Land for Wildlife

We are now proud members of the Land for Wildlife scheme.
Lyre birds are in mating season and their beautiful songs echo across the forest all through the day.
The rainy season is really kicking in now, soil is nicely soaked, and there is alot of water in the creek and the dams. Tree planting in earnest has begun, in a couple of years it should look fabulous.
The farm is now on facebook too. Its just another way to network, most of the action remains at the blog.

Joyous mud, this happens when logging machinery uses your access road

Laurie's Birthday weekend

Monday: Laurie turned 66, happy birthday to Laurie and the Queen!

and Yuko baked the best 66th chocolate birthday cake ever baked.


We extended the shed, in preparation for a new kitchen development..

We took a windfallen gum tree to task..

Kle used a milling attachment on a fallen Blackwood, stunning wood!

and the Plant List continued:
Japanese turnips
Our local Blackwood seeds are now germinating

oh and there are several dozen wonderfully weird mushroom species popping
up all over the place..this one takes the prize so far
