Day 297 of 365

It's a while since I've done a "What's in my Beanie" wander around the orchard. Mostly as there hasn't been much on offer! However we are very lucky that we have had oranges and lemons available all winter (and into the spring!); they hang on the trees really well and we are able to pick them when we need them.
And the chooks are laying nicely now, too.
See you tomorrow,
Raewyn.

Day 286 of 365

DH working!! Chatting while a new gate is being installed in the cow yard railings.
See you tomorrow,
Raewyn.

Day 285 of 365

We went out the very back of the farm to see the Kowhai in flower.
The yellow trees.
The round thing in the picture is for putting large bales of hay into for feeding.
We were a bit late this year so the flowers were past their best but there were still plenty of Tui feeding.
Leanne *here* got an awsome video of the Tui at her place.
The sun was too bright - and the trees too tall - for good photos!
See you tomorrow,
Raewyn.

Day 283 of 365

Because Miss Piggy has dug up a lot of the orchard (with her snout, inspite of the ring) we're having to feed the pets with
a little extra; maize and calf pellets. It didn't take them long to get the idea of this extra feed! (DH's nephew has been making sure they don't go without!)
See you tomorrow,
Raewyn.

Day 282 of 365

DH's nephew's been stitching while he's here. Learning backstitch!
See you tomorrow,

Day 281 of 365

Moon watching.
9.20 pm
Eclipse starting; about 10.30 pm
The eclipse continues; about 11pm
The Blood Moon; about 11.30 pm.
Apparently the Blood Moon shows for about an hour. I couldn't get any better photos as a breeze got up and kept blowing clouds across the face of the moon. And it was bed-time.
But an entertaining night!
See you tomorrow,
Raewyn.

A nice country scene, I thought.

Dogs waiting patiently for me to finish my chores!
