A regular sight around the farm are electric fence standards. Take a bunch of standards, push the staked ends into the ground, repeat every few yards until you have a fence line, attached one end of a length of wire to an existing fence, thread the other end through the curly ends, attach it to a power source and wallah, an instant fence, which is well respected by animals. So well respected that sometimes the fence does not even have to be ‘alive’ and the animals will stay away from it.
My passionfruit vine is really thriving, producing loads of scrumptious fruit at the moment. But it still has plenty of energy for producing little tendrils in search of something else to attach themselves to:
As they unwind, they reach out to find a host.
It doesn't seem that long ago that where there is now fruit, there were these beautiful flowers:
Yap, I pretty well love everything about my passionfruit vine.
During the week I thought I had lost my camera. I went through several days in a state of mild panic trying, trying, trying to remember when I had last used it. Today I found it. Hanging in a bag behind the door in my office at work.
Anyway, the point is, I haven't been out looking for subjects for this topic. I've been looking for my camera.
So this afternoon I've been looking around for things to fit the bill.
I stumbled on the vacuum cleaner hose.
Sitting in the paddock beside my house is an unsightly power pole with some serious attachments. Or maybe that a serious power pole with some unsightly attachments. Plenty of twisted, curly bits there.
Finally, I thought, that is it, I don't have all day to do this. I sat down to post this and in doing so noticed, just above eye level, right in front of me, a little container I use to hold pens and pencils. There's also a paint brush, a nail file and a small pair of scissors.
And when I looked to see what else might be in there, I found a little sewing thimble that I've been looking for for ages. Yes, I am having trouble with my memory lately!
I wonder how the rest of the team got on? Just pop over here to find out.
