I need to take a bit of a break from the daily photos. 

It’s been an incredible journey that started back on January 1, 2013 as a year-long personal challenge to capture the beauty in each day on the farm… and it just kept going. But after 8 years & over 2,900 posts I need to stop for a bit. 

Thank you all for being part of this journey. I am truly honoured by the level of interest in the day-to-day happenings on our farm. Never in my wildest dreams did I foresee that my photos would touch so many people from all over world. 

Thank you xx

Rainfall scarf 

You may recall during 2020 I documented the maximum temperature of each day by knitting a temperature scarf. This year I’m knitting a rainfall scarf, one row per day for the year, using shades of blue when it rains & eyelet rows to separate the months. Knitted in hand-dyed mini skeins from Dyeing to Knit & Cloud Forest Yarns

We don’t get a huge amount of rain; our long-term yearly average rainfall is 433mm (17”) & 52 wet days. We will see how this plays out during the year. And yes… that is only 0.5mm for all of April. We are hoping for some rain real soon.
