It is like pushing a reset button and starting again. It is a good feeling.
Plus my day was made this morning when I found that The Farmhouse garden was showing signs of recovery from the annual beating that it gets every February.
Look - roses. Yay and double yay!
I have blogged about Farmgirl's interesting choice of farmwork attire before. This was what she chose on the weekend for a motorbike/gator adventure across the paddocks.

Farmboy was much more sensibly attired.

Farmboy got the motorbike for Christmas. I still have mixed feelings about it. Overall though motorbikes are a part of life here. After much discussion we felt he would be better learning the necessary skills from The Farmer when he was a bit younger rather than jumping on a bike at a mate's place when he was a bit older (and full of testosterone) with disastrous results. The bike is also set so it can't go very fast at all at present.
Most of our farm work is no longer done on motorbikes but rather is done by gators. Here is a gator.
It is like a tough, 4 WD golf cart. It is much more stable ( and slower) than the 4 wheeled motorbikes we were previously using for stock work. Plus a lot of our staff are in their late teens/early 20s and regardless of what rules we put on the bikes we knew they just cut up on them when no-one was looking! The gator is handy too as the little tray on the back carries a lot.
Have just looked at the time and realised I need to get myself down to the bus stop pronto. Hope all is well with everyone. May take off word verification and just block anonymous comments I think. Those little words are so annoying.
