Autumn is a beautiful time of year and this year is no exception.
We had plenty of rain at the end of March and the farm is exploding with life. Summer grasses have greened and the winter grasses have germinated promising us a bountiful winter.
The days begin with a cacophony of bird songs; kookaburras, magpies, fairy wrens and the lyrical cockatoos. A huge variety of insects also seem to have appeared since the rain. Spider webs can be seen on the grasses in the morning light shining with dew, something that I have not seen for quite a while.
The sheep and cattle are looking marvellous with the wonderful season. There is enough grass to feed them through to spring, a very comfortable situation to be in.
We acknowledge that we are very lucky to be in this situation. Our thoughts go to those that are still waiting for rain - for some the drought has been relentless.
