  4. I think it’s already started! I’ve seen evidence of gardening in front of three unoccupied homes this week. there has also been some guerilla rubbish collection going on as well. keep your cool KB, and wear a balaclava and capsicum spray goggles at all times.

  6. yes, gangsta stuck his head over the fence this morning and told me that they had eaten all my trees. GREAT sense of humour.

  7. Sorry to hear that AM, but that is precisely what I meant by rounding up all the stray stock/fauna. I think it will be something we will always have to deal with. 🙁

  8. my trees were fine 🙂 just gangsta’s sick sense of humour… I’ve planted quite a few together so I’m considering fencing the area while they get started, mainly because they stand between 80 sheep and goats and the commons.

  9. Ohhhh that gangsta – gotta love him! Yes, fencing or some sort of protection is probably a must. If the sheep/goats don’t damage them, then the rabbits/kangaroos will.

  11. For all the mums out there (& the mum-to-be) you are welcome to come on Sunday & pick some flowers from my garden. Even if you don’t fit into the above categories you are still welcome! 😉

  12. the horses were out on the prowl for feed and water again last night, leaving the gift of manure, but raiding hay inadvertently left out. They didn’t touch any of the newly planted trees. What a blessing!!!! As for rabbits and goats, kangaroos and emu…no guarantees on that one. It seems they go for the grasses on Murray street first. Maybe they know we are trying to improve their environment. Perhaps we can leave a water trough away from the new is so dry out there!!! After all, they were here first and it is their country.(not the rabbits and goats) but without them all we would not have been able to survive in this forbidding land. Gina’s idea of planting just for the animals seems to make more and more sense…they are part of our living environment.
    Several of the aunties expressed delight in the flowers today and wanted to know how to get pretty flowers to grow in their gardens. Just wondering if we can do a ‘guerrilla planting’ in those barren landscapes. Hhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?
