Grazing paddocks have too much height and too much barley grass, so John has mowed some with his new slasher and was doing the last paddock today when a stone sent off a spark. Here's the result.
They quickly distinguished it. Great work guys and thank you.
Not a large fire, but a little too close to our house for comfort.
Here is the culprit. The dark part of the stone at the lower edge is what sent off a spark.
How easily can it happen!
NEVER A DULL MOMENT. LUCKY HEY?
On a brighter note, softy Farmer John wouldn't pull down a nest some Swallows have built in our carport and now we have 4 baby Swallows in the nest.
Note the mud nest and some emu feathers in it too. Amazing to watch them build it bit by bit. Now he is complaining about the mess on the roof of his car. Piece of cardboard over that area fixes that problem.
John hasn't had as much time to garden this year, or should I say inclination, due to his lack of ability to move as he did 20 years ago. Maybe next year ..............
However, he's so proud of his roses and a some other colourful sections of the garden.
Note the two crows having a drink from the sheep's watering tank.
Most of the blossom trees have now finished, this photo taken a few weeks ago.
This particular tree was "halved" in a fierce windstorm last year so I was pleased how it had recuperated.
