Cleaning up the back yard is pretty well endless, with two large trees in the throes of "bark season" - Australian trees drop all their bark in the summer and start again - and all the smaller plants doing their best to help. One is the "widow maker" lemon scented eucalypt and the other a rose eucalypt, or similar name; Eucalyptus Grandii. Fortunately I like gardening :-) So today was much pruning and raking, from around 5.30 pm to nearly 7pm when the sun was low enough. I had tossed out some elderly bread (still ok but dry), so the ravens were lurking, waiting for me to get out of the way so they can go get it and wash it in the bird bath. They've finished raising their chicks - I think there were two - in their nest at the top of the grandii and turfed them off to join the gangs of teenaged ravens who hang around the train station.
