Muddy roads, wet sheep and rained in shearers can cause some logistical challenges when is comes to the annual job of shearing our sheep. Last month shearing was interrupted several times by rain but we got there in the end thanks to flexible staff and a good dose of patience and persistence by everyone involved.
With paddocks full of green grass there has never been a better time to enjoy home grown, home slaughtered lamb.
Looking around our property we now have full dams, a running creek and abundant wildflowers. Such a dramatic contrast to what our landscape can look like at this time of the year.
On an afternoon walk we spotted this well camouflaged echidna looking for some dry ground.
About 40kms away the Menindee Lakes are bursting back into life with water flowing and wildflowers swaying in the surrounding sand hills.
In the vegetable garden there is asparagus, flowers, weeds and some spring vegetables slowly establishing themselves.
School holidays mean that right now we have a bit more time to appreciate our surrounds, cook, garden, read and spend time with our horses. Thank goodness for the holidays.
Are you into podcasts? Or maybe just looking for some beautiful links and ideas? If so be sure to visit My Open Kitchen. There is so much goodness here that I don't even know where to start.
Happy Sunday, friends x
