How to be a decent grower in the garden

Im not talking morality, though I guess there are plenty of garden morals, especially in a community garden. More like growing decent produce; a cauliflower that heads properly (still havent managed it), or a carrot that looks like the textbook one (ditto). I could go on, and on If youd like to grow a Continue reading How to be a decent grower

Raptor portraits Natural Newstead

Of all the birds, raptors are perhaps the most thrilling to observe from close range.

The Little Eagle, pictured below, allowed me to approach to within ten metres or so I think the closest Ive ever been to this magnificent bird. All of the shots are virtually full frame.

Completing the cuckoos Natural Newstead

Rounding out the focus on cuckoos in recent weeks, here are the two species that havent featured so far.

Pallid Cuckoos have been around in good numbers for at least a fortnight, while Black-eared Cuckoos are doing well in the bush along the Mia Mia. The least common of all the migrating cuckoos, its been great to see and hear them on most visits to this area since early September. On a warm Friday evening I was a little surprised to see a small flock of woodswallows near South German Track White-browed and at least one Masked Woodswallow a very early record.

Its because I love you.. Edgar's Mission Farm SanctuaryEdgar's Mission Farm Sanctuary

Edgars Mission - lamb, petal

The waiting is the hardest part. Waiting in the deafening silence for the vet to return with the green needle that will set you free on your final journey. Waiting, staying strong, looking into your beautiful Who me? face and seeing yet more beauty that had eluded me. My mind treks back to the day I first met you, sitting on the floor on the barn where you had been placed. An injury to your back robbed you of the ability to move your hind legs, but not your ability to live or be loved. Your Who me? face darted left and right, then back again, commanding us, your now-loyal servants, to do everything in our power and your might to get you mobile once again. And that we did, with almost 100% success, no doubt spurred on by your dogged determination to live life to the full. No one told you that you were a food production animal and that your worth would only be the sum of your parts. If they did, I know you would have looked at them with your Who me? face and said Bullocks!

Edgars Mission - lamb, petal-2

Oh Petal, I loved you then as I love you now; I could not love you any more if I tried, but in these final moments I am going to do my darnedest to. I want so desperately to whip out my phone and take one last photo of you, but somehow that seems disrespectful and I feel this last precious moment should remain in my heart and not on my phone. Kindness brought us together: kindness of the caring heart who spied you out of the corner of her eye as she saw you laying there so awkwardly in a paddock; kindness as she somehow found the courage to face the farmer and beg a sweet mercy for you. And now, kindness was to take us apart, as I have come to accept that just because we can sustain life, it doesnt mean we should. No longer able to fulfil our charter of giving you a life truly worth living, you had become trappe...
