I tried to use greens to make a New Zealand Bellbird..
I sewed in 2 real feathers under the wings. ( they originally came off the peacock at the orchard - I kept a whole lot )
the green is iridescent.
The Billington plums are now ready and there is a plentiful crop. They are red fleshed and tasty.
A close up of a beautiful gerbra.
We all went to the jetty with the nets to scoop out mangrove seeds and throw them up on the grass to get mowed up. We don't want our estuary to disappear and fill in with mangroves. Both grandsons enthusiastically helping R.
