It's so good to be in Western Australia again visiting my parents. It's so good to see them both face to face, to be able to give them hugs and enjoy their company. Dad is O.K., perhaps a little better than I expected to see him and I can still make him laugh which is good.
It's so good to be back on the farm enjoying the 360 degree view once more. It's nice to be warmer although I do not enjoy the extreme heat that I grew up in. This morning I was awake at 6.00am and too these few photos.
Harvesting is underway with my brother and nephew spending long hours out in the paddock. There is something rather nice hearing the rumble of harvesters in the distance and taking a peek outside to see their progress.
Dad and Mum's mulberry tree is in fruit and this morning a picked a container full for popping in the freezer for a rainy day. Many mulberries end up on the ground which makes a fine feast for local residents, Bob Tail lizards.
Yesterday while Genevieve and I were waiting for the train to bring us up to the farm, we amused ourselves by taking a few photos of ourselves. This is probably the best of the lot as many unusual faces were pulled. Many strange looks were directed at us as we were laughing so much. Well one must find a way to pass the time.
Well it is time lock up the chooks for the night and do a little watering of the garden for Mum.
