Nature in a rush

Currawongs have created a new club house in the compost bins.  Most mornings they gather around, calling each other to come and glean.  Their songs/calls are very distinctive and can be heard long distance.

Delivery of lucerne/grass for laying in the blueberry orchard on our return.  This young man lives down the road - tall, handsome with the most beautiful blue eyes.  Loves to stand around and talk.  And very proud of the fact that the tractor "can turn on a sixpence" - only I don't think he's ever seen a sixpence!

Daffodils intact - proof of turning ability!

Apricot blossom

Blossom on one of the many varieties of blueberries in the orchard.

Luminous - rampant - borage.

Quinces (there are two but it's difficult to distinguish from this angle)
