..it's cold! Wintery weather makes for gloomy pictures but I thought I'd share what's happening around the place lately...
There must be slim bug pickings at the moment because our ducks are staaaarrvvviingg!! They follow me about the place constantly voicing their disapproval. I'm feeding them twice daily, but you know, this stiiiilll isn't enough for them!
There are odd little piles of wood scattered around the property (oops! Sorry, I shouldn't say little, hubby worked very hard to create these heaps). It's homegrown timber that has either died and been felled or has fallen over on it's own.
Here is our access to our main wood pile:
There is not a scrap of duckweed left on our dam - it really did vanish with the first appearance of the cold weather. The delicate green surface covering has been gone for weeks now.
It will be interesting to see if and when it reappears...
Hello cheeky friend. The goats have had a mischievous couple of weeks, escaping the confines of their paddock. (Who wants to be tucked away up here when there are more exciting taste-offerings on the other side of the fence?). Back to big daily hand feedings and tweeking the electric fence, which fingers crossed is back up and running again.
Our oak tree has finally decided to turn colour! It is a magnificent tree - a small picture just doesn't do it justice.
Inside, I've heaved out the slicer for a spot of bread slicing action. It makes short work of cutting several loaves in one sitting...
I've also spent a bit of time today washing fleece. At the front is some local wool I purchased and behind is some fawn coloured alpaca.
