The rain has finally subsided here and it IS lovely to see the sun shining. The garden is looking like it wants to burst at the seams with all the flowers that my gardener has planted...I will photograph them in a couple of weeks....but for the time being here are some photos that I took this morning.
This is our breeder mob. They should start calving this coming week. They are looking like they need supplement so a trip to Mareeba tomorrow to buy some lick blocks.
We call this cow "Dingo Girl". You might notice that she only has half of her right ear. When she was a baby she was attacked by dingoes. She was missing for 10 days before our neighbour found her and brought her back to us. Her mother took her straight back onto the teat and with plenty of antibiotics to heal the dingo bites she is now a mother herself and about to have her second calf. Amazing!
The gardener has plenty of jobs to do in our garden. Head down, butt up as the saying goes!

Pink everywhere in the garden at the moment. The pink azaleas are particularly beautiful at this time of the year.
Another show of pink flowers.
We tried covering the mandarin tree but the birds are still eating the fruit. Ah well. Must share the love!
