Not being able to get out and about, most of my life seems to be centred around my home. That is not necessarily a bad thing, just a bit different and I am sure there are a lot of other people around the world who's lives are much the same.
I had wanted to buy the house at the back of mine to move it onto another block so I could have a big garden but that didn't happen.
So, I have put most of my attention into the garden I have, including the patios and verandahs.
It is small and easy to manage and I have the bush across the road and the beach, so really I didn't need a big garden to look after. I just wanted one. It is a steep climb back to the house from the beach.
Every week I collect flowers from the bush for the house. I can't pick native plants but there are plenty of 'feral' flowers where people have dumped plants in the bush.
I planted some more bushes to make the verandah more private and at the side of the house came upon feathers.
My little assistant, who is my shadow alerted me to them.
Then I noticed that the PeeWees have gone missing. The males were always attacking their refections in the windows now they are suddenly gone.
I don't think it is the eagles, although they are always flying over.
And I know of no cats anywhere nearby. I suspect some of those big crows that are around are the killers.
I suppose that is just how nature works.
