The first couple of hours of my day are spent on the deck making stuff and drinking tea. If I get hungry I reach out and grab a banana!
They taste like real bananas should. Of course, I have to share them with possums and fruitbats. If I need some material to weave or make string I have a ready and plentiful supply.
A grass nest, some tools and tinkerings. My property used to be a pasture and watering hole for cattle, so there's no shortage of grass for me to use or for Hariette to chew. It grows to 2m and has wallaby tracks through it. Slowly, slowly we are eliminating the grass and replacing it with wetland plants and rainforest trees.
The trug with banana pith (excellent for string making), emu feathers and tools. Thatching I made from Miscanthus zebrinus prunings and toes.
More materials and experiments.
and a teeny nest found by Noah a couple of days ago.
Time for tea or maybe a banana smoothie.
*Disclaimer: These photos were taken with my laptop. Not easy trying to frame photos with a laptop, hence the toes.
