Working bee

It was busy out at the block this weekend. Our guys were rebuilding the fence shared with the neighbour while the neighbour had his barn raising project going. And yes it was a chilly weekend.

Our more savvy fence makers said that the wombat is coming from the town oval and using the storm water culvert to cross the road (that culvert goes into the neighbours property), then burrows through the fence to our side to get to the tastier more natural food in our block.


We used to have the picnic setting in the "Chapel" but Ian refused to eat over there ... he said his food got cold in the short distance from the garage.  So I move the picnic setting to just outside the garage door and put a hammock in the Chapel instead.  
It turned out to be a perfect solution.  I simply love swinging away reading a good book or just looking up into soaring canopy of the trees.

Poo hunting

It seems the neighbour on the other side is not keen in animals.  When discussing the specifications of our shared fence he insisted on it having barbed wire to keep the animals out .. and in the process mentioned the fat wombat that burrows under fence from our side.  I thought this was exciting news so spent a busy hour or so looking at all the poo on the block.

Crikey a lot of animals must wonder about in the night because there is poo everywhere ... kangaroo poo in the grassy areas, possum poo under the trees, rabbit poo here and there, something I think might be fox poo   But no wombat poo which is supposed to have a distinctive cube shape until I found these .. I think we've got a wombat!

The new neighbours

It turns out our new neighbours are going to be Cinnamon and Tina a pair of goats.  Wishing to avoid the potential of unpleasant neighbours the next house along bought the block which they will be using to give their pet goats a bigger run.

They are now busy cleaning up the weeds before fencing the block in readiness for the new occupants.

We're getting new neighbours

It was a surprise to find last weekend that after two years of waiting the block next door has been sold.
