The south side of the house is feeling very bare.
We used to have one huge tree on that side of the house but last winter it came down and landed on our home
Now we don’t want a repeat of that incident
But we do want trees to look at and act as windbreakers for that cold southerly wind
So we went to a local nursery that was open and purchased a variety of natives
We got about twenty but we needed a few for the row of eucalyptus we planted around the workshop
To fill gaps.
We placed all the tree were we wanted them mixing the varieties so we can get a nice view out from the backyard and
As you can see were were being closely monitored by the livestock
And here they all are planted and tree guards put around them all
17 trees planted today
Hubby has four to plant on the other side of the property
Might do that tomorrow we are exhausted lol
Luckily hubby has a petrol augur to dig the holes with.
Would of taken much longer digging by hand
It was lovely out in the sunshine
People were walking and riding their bikes everyone said hello
And one of our neighbours walked over to offer encouragement while keeping a safe distance
I can’t wait until they all grow and flower and the birds all come to feast
Hope your all keeping well and sane in isolation
See ya xxx
