A walk on the windy wild side, Sunday afternoon.
A couple of years ago I helped Mum and Dad plant some native trees along a creek that has been fenced off to animals on PopPop's farm.
Today Mum noticed a flowering beauty in the tree lot. So we went to investigate!
The grass is very long, it is a bit of a jungle to get through.
BUT look what we discovered!
and more....this silver wattle is loaded with seed pods.
So is the lucerne tree. Perhaps I could collect seeds and grow more trees?
Not sure what this healthy one is, I shall have to check with Dad.
Dad tells me I need to wait for the seed pods to dry before I can collect them.
Planting trees on the farm is important because all the old trees will eventually die and we need young ones to replace them. Trees are important because they provide food and shelters for birds and animals. They also provide shade for our sheep and cattle.
They also help keep the soil healthy.
There are lots of birds on the farm.
I wake up to the sounds of birds every morning.
Remember the parrots....that nest in the hollows...
they also LOVE PopPop's OATS!
