It’s autumn. Everywhere I look in this beautiful part of the world I see autumnal colours – reds, yellows, oranges, browns. The light is amazing too! Varying from the soft pink tinge of the morning through to bright blue sunny skies and radiant sunsets.
Today I planted broad beans. Two varieties. One crimson flowered, the other chocolate flowered. It’s a leap of faith pressing dried up bean seeds into the ground. Hoping we’ll be rewarded with an abundance.
While I planted, the ducks strutted, the chooks scratched and the magpies stole fat juicy worms from my beds…poor little squirmers disturbed by me, digging up the beds in preparation for planting. They’re so cheeky those magpies. They come within a metre of me while I dig and plant. I guess they see it as worth it. Such delicious wormy goodness they lose their fear and warble for me while they take their ill gotten gains.
I don’t mind really. It’s such a wonderful experience being out in the garden that we all enjoy – chooks, ducks, maggies and me.
Only 15 – 20 weeks until we enjoy a fab crop of fresh broad beans. Can’t hardly wait!
