We have had more rain during August than we had during August 2014… 83mm (3.26 inches) compared with 29mm last year.
With the rain, the native birds are displaying nesting behaviour…. the pair of parrots that have been working away at making a nest hole in one of the big trees have been at it again… for the fifth year. The hole is still inadequate.
Native flowers have been lovely. Most flower during the winter here….
I have been eating well, especially with the particular chickens that I have at the moment. They are the kind that lay all year around. I am not sure that this is good for the chickens and I don't think I'd have this kind again… but after the fox raid (more than a year ago now) I had to take what I could get!
As we move closer to the sping equinox, the herbs are beginning to flower… even the rue…
