The bilbies are back for their annual visit.
Some green amongst the brown
Incredibly some lucerne plants still hanging in there despite a long hot dry summer.
You may recall we sowed this new stand of lucerne early September last year but then abandoned it mid-November when we still hadn’t been allocated any water.
So what now for this paddock?
We wait for rain, then see how many plants revive. Depending on the outlook for the season we might direct seed some more lucerne into it or just leave it alone.

...the only plant I could find flowers on for the Autumn Wild Pollinator Count.
Indirectly pollinators play a role in the majority of what we eat & consume. So if you can, become a citizen scientist and get involved in the count. It’s happening all this week and it only takes 10 minutes.
Enjoyed having a coffee this morning with Lorie of Twice as Nice Gallery& Cafe.
Lorie, a local from way back, has just started his epic trip around Australia raising funds for Eli’s Gift, a charity that helps out families of very sick children. His beautifully restored 1949 Leyland Sydney double decker bus has a top speed of 45kms/hr… it will be a slow journey, meandering from town to town.
Lorie is heading east, hoping to be in Albury over Easter. So, if you see his bus in your travels make sure you pop in for a coffee, a chat & make a donation to a very worthy cause.
