The kids rescued this little hopper from the pool this afternoon. A tonne of these critters have bred up since the rain & locust plagues can totally devastate the feed. So, we’re hoping their cycle is almost finished & that the damage will be minimal this time.

town day

January 25, 2008

Today, the whole family made the 300km round trip to town – its lovely to see the countryside still looking so lush & green.

bush harvest is a local arts & crafts co-operative that i joined when i moved to the area. Their shop stocks all sorts of interesting handmade items – but these recycled corrugated iron & timber dogs are my favourite

i swear each dog has a unique personality. You can read more about them here.
