February Update

Its been a while since I posted any progress posts, mostly because its been pretty hot so we have tried not to do too much work. In the Northern hemisphere the rest time is winter, here it is summer!

Just after New Years we got an excavator in to clean up the front yard. It had a few tree stumps and lumpy bits that made it hard to see exactly what was available to us. This is the result:






















This is the pile of stumps and bits that were left behind.



Here is Brodie planting our long-suffering potted citrus trees. They were in pots for 3 years.



Two weeks ago we had a cool change come through and we had the fireplace going! In February!!! The fire wasn't really necessary but it was nice to have. During that weekend our arborist mate came around and decided to clear some of the scrub underneath the larger trees in the backyard. This is what it looked like before:







And here is what it looks like after:







And here is one of the 'grass' area finally cleared up.



Since we did that clearing we have been enjoying the wild birds and insects flying around in the new space. We have a tree (can't remember the name right now) that is attracting a lot of wildlife. Here are a few birds:





We are enjoying the antics of a pair of Richmond Birdwing Butterflies. They are threatened in our area so it is a real treat to see them in our backyard every day. I haven't taken a good photo yet, but I am trying my best!!!

Until next time,

Kat
