I took a wander down to our sad dam the other morning.
|The photo is deceptive - the water is just barely|
covering the dam floor
The above pic is deceptive - the dam is even lower than it was a couple of weeks ago - we seriously need a good heavy shower to fill it again - even halfway up would be reassuring.
|A huge gash is developing where the road|
gully enters the dam
Standing on the jetty and looking up the gully which runs to the dam from the road, the effect of the water flowing into the dam is visible. The sand is being eroded from the sides. we are trying to prevent complete erosion, and thus raising the floor level of the dam with the wash away by placing some stones rocks in the gully. I don;t know if we are going to be successful.
|A fair sized pomegranate|
Walking back from the dam I spied on of the few pomegranates our trees produced this year. It's a goodly size and holds the promise of pomegranates in the years to come.
|I was crouched next to this pomagranate bush|
when I look up and saw something in the distance
that required closer inspection
Looking up from where I was kneeling next to the pomegranate bush I spied something in the distance. Why, it's Blockhead - our eco-friendly (bird) pest controlling scarecrow.
|Blockhead - a mere shadow of his former glory|
The condition of that jersey is a simple example of how long it takes for synthetic man made products to leave this planet...
Blockhead definitely needs reviving next Spring if he is to be an effective bird / hare deterrent.
