Before our first autumn rain, the calves were dropping like
the rain should have.
A recent baby making tentative friends with our last remaining
steer that, for the second time running, jumped out of the stockyards
not to be sent to market.
Ya gotta give it to him for spunk!
Togetherness, two mommas and their babies.
No need to cover up, these girls believe in letting it all hang out.
On my way to town, I pass this beautiful farm
with two Golden Ash, Fraxinus excelsior 'Aurea' , flanked by
two beautiful Claret Ash, Fraxinus raywoodii.
The Claret Ash comes from a property not far from our Mt.Lofty house.
A gardener noticed a red sport on a Golden Ash and propagated from
it. It was a rather grand house with lots of visitors who, in a few
years time, marvelled at the depth of colour and the rest is history.
Claret Ash against one of my favourite shade trees, the Golden Elm
in our village.
We all are mirror images of each other,
some enjoying autumn and others, spring.
Whichever you are in, take pleasure in what it offers.
