I have just spent two lovely hours watering my big rambling garden.
At times I quite enjoy the solitude just pottering in amongst the plants
and the trees and grasses. It’s such a lovely time of year when lots of plants
and trees are sprouting new leaves and spring flowers are blooming.
It was very quiet, different from when I spend time in the gardenwhen the birds
are making such a racket. In the morning the squabbling of the lorikeets is almost
unbearable. Everywhere around us gardens have native plants in bloom and the
birds are attracted to the blossoms. The birds come in droves and the cacophony
of bird noise is just deafening, and yet lovely at the same time.
This spring we have again been seeing bees. For a long time we have had no bees and have had
to pollinate our vegetables by hand. The gorgeous droning buzz in the citrus blossoms and in
native blooms have been music to our ears. Welcome back little bees. Nature is getting back to
normal in our neck of the woods.
I have just been reminded that we have a meeting to attend tonight in the next town, so I need to be off to cook dinner. Well, it’s really leftovers from another night – pork and ginger stirfry – whichI am going to add extra ingredients to, and cook up some rice. Dinner will be ready in a jiffy.
Tomorrow I will see what I can get into to make life just that little bit more interesting.
