Our two weeks of isolation after returning from New Zealand in March turned into seven weeks, with lockdown imposed following an outbreak of a certain virus here in northwest Tasmania. There is a lot to be said for staying at home, we certainly didn’t sit around wondering what to do next. The eastern wall of the house, potting shed and chook house have had a fresh coat of stain
and Michael created a unique cover for the gas bottles.
The garden has had quite an overhaul with much trimming, new timber edging to the beds and a fresh layer of mulch.
It is an ongoing project.
With the lifting of lockdown last Monday, while it seems much of the population headed to the shops, we took Cooper for a much needed run around the local country roads with the top down. The sun was shining and the scenery was breathtaking. Snow atop Black Bluff is a gentle reminder that winter is just around the corner
but there was no sign of it this day.
The autumn hues of liquidambar added a stunning contrast to the blues and greens.
Hopefully, we will have some more days like this before hunkering down until spring arrives.
