Here at Silver Birch Homestead, we are slowly getting around to buying new things that we need. We left a lot behind in Victoria, so there have of course been items to replace. There is also a growing list of items we simply didn’t need on a suburban block, many of which we are slowly accumulating. For example, a chainsaw, a chipper/mulcher, a spotlight (not just for getting around the block, but there is huge potential for night photography here), and walkie talkies (have you tried finding someone on ten acres?). Sophie has been busily cooking up tomatoes for sauces, and we have also planted about three hundred bulbs (Belladonnas and Daffodils).
I am beginning to get photos of various birds around the place finally. They aren’t fantastic images yet, but it’s a start.
