The Claytons 52/2019

18 posts in this topic

We didn't do 52/2019, I sort of finished 2018 then like everyone ran out of puff to keep on.  But it's spring summer so will chip away til Christmas, no promises, and hope everyone who takes the odd shot will join in.

 

September snapshots.

 

A bit of rain last month was a welcome novelty, a dry finger dam filled up and the Spoonbills found it, lovely to see them again.

A feral cat moved in, initially unwelcome - we don't choose to have cats because life is difficult enough for birds already - but this one picked off the hundred or so rats that over-ran the hay sheds, we also can't poison because of the danger to owls especially.  So she was allowed to stay on and has doubled in size - so much younger than we thought when it first appeared.

Full Moon a week or two ago - one of those nice Halloween orange ones.

From the front door - kangaroos on the neighbour's land, they don't much come onto our spot because the alpacas get all "bells and whistles".

From the back door - Arnold the littlest pony and Harley the tiniest sheep catch some morning sun in the freezing cold.

I deliberately took a walk the other week to capture colours ...with surrounds of red and dry ... any bit of colour ..even a single plant  becomes something spirit -lifting :) peach blossom/wisteria/clivia/bluebells and an un named succulent hanging basket :)

Not wrong on the colour or lack of it - I did nothing for about six months or so, it was depressing enough just looking at it without creating reminders. 

That's lovely that your animals share nicely with the visitors, mine tend to carry on like selfish little brats.

That young euro is a gem, gorgeous attitude.

Not many bees around this spring, it's been mostly too cold and windy.  There were just a few around the pear trees, would be hundreds in better weather.

More cat woes - yet another feral has moved in to call the car-port home.  He was calling on the previous stray, I think she has a de-sexing tattoo - but this boy is all battle-scars and male hormones.  Will try to trap him and take to vet, get desexed and whatever shots - I'd like them to go back to their old homes but obviously that's not in their plans

So love Pudden.  No, no grass, (that didn't last long).   But a dust-roll must feel good, ginger cat likes edgey tractor tracks for a back massage, grey cat not impressed.

There's also this one ... 
not a 'garden' ..but an assortment of roses, all protected in various places round the house  by various wire cages etc :) -gathered together in a collage ...

Inspired by The Little Prince? - the little planet that is.

But the roses also have a connection - "  and if a sheep eats the rose ..."  (Happens here all the time, and think of St Exup).

If I'd thought faster yesterday I'd have tried to do something inspired by Hans Heysen.  Almost home and held up at our crooked bridge by a flock being moved to another property.

Lots of dust, and a hot and tired kelpie.

This is one of my favourites from a friend's funeral on Monday :(
I had no idea this service existed ..but - how wonderful! 
Led by his son, and escorted by other family and friends on Harley machines, S had his final ride along the river he loved, and beyond.
