Paws for thought

Sometimes there's a tennis ball that needs chasing, and you just have to run through the freshly cut grass.

Defeating the chooks

Even though the chooks won't eat garlic, they have absolutely no respect for the reinventors' efforts at growing food and will scratch it out of the ground.

Laying fine chicken wire across the ground before the plants erupt from the soil is one way to protect them.

Finally, it's winter

Winter in Perth is a bit of a joke - usually it's sunny and 22 degrees during the day, and we almost never get a frost.
With climate creep, the roses refuse to stop blooming and the hydrangeas refuse to lose their leaves even when the new ones are budding up the stems.
So the practical reinventor took matters into her own hands.
A severe prune for the hydrangeas and the roses.

With these saved to adorn a mantlepiece.

Soon there will be the creative reinventor's favourite jonquils along with a variety of ranunculus, anenome and daffodungles.
