👣 In summer I always enjoy an early-evening walk on our smallholding. No need to get in my car to find nature, I have 8.5ha right here to explore, hoping to see the Barn Owl or some Guinea fowl, but always enjoying the Bluegum trees and beautiful grasses and wild flowers along the way.

An early morning storm
Every morning at 5.15am the sun rises over the bluegum bush at the back of our property, bathing the whole smallholding in golden sunlight.
This morning it was a bit late because of heavy, black cloud cover, but at 5.30am the miracle happened!
Twenty minutes later we had a quick shower and out came the sun again!
All Solly's chooks surfaced from their hiding places (they're up-and-about before 5am every morning, but the crowing starts at about 3.30am!) and here they're enjoying some mixed fowl food I put out for them.
