You know you’re getting your eco-habitat right when you have top-of-the-rung predators lurking amongst the foliage: this tiger turned up the other morning, to the consternation of the faint-hearted chickens!
And then an ibis! Who seemed very puzzled at finding itself in such a lovely jungle of fruit and no garbage in sight…
I felt quite like David Attenborough, stalking the wildlife through the orchard with my camera.
I'm mother of a beautiful boy and sweet baby girl, living in a brown yurt by a dam on a farm, with my permaculture-teacher husband, a man in love with the good brown earth. I'm taking a break with my babies from studying midwifery, to plant in fruit trees and dig in sand pits for a wee while instead. Enjoying going to sleep with the sound of frogs and waking to frost sparkling like diamonds in the morning sun.
