Nature's Place


No surprise to see what comes, it being the only ‘wet’ garden hereabouts. Oasis in an urban desert where people still cut down trees and rip out mature bushes – habitat and food sources.

The ‘season’ so far is hot and dry and summer has only just begun. Bushfires already in full swing, affected people doing their best with it.

I am inclined to make room for any creatures that appear but there are conditions in a small finite space. … All must abide if it’s to survive.

These guys idea of gardening is to eat everything. Needless to say, this can’t be allowed without regular checks.

The garden is for every creature that fits in it, none are allowed to destroy or monopolise resources.

Though all can have a piece for a time, and some ‘management’ occurs, it is largely left to run.

And so it unfolds, not unlike a flowers petals open to the sun, as time passes.

It all happens in time, everything in its place, a containable space.

Perspective means nothing runs amok … for long.

      I often go in the garden at night, it’s a different world then, and find creatures you wouldn’t see during the day, foraging as if they can’t be seen. Ordinarily they wouldn’t, and they don’t understand the light from a torch. So I can pick them up and put them somewhere else the damage they do won’t be felt by everything else, in the back yard, or over the fence.

    Awesome detail as always Mark I could not help but notice the pattern behind the head,on the shoulders. It resembles solder points and a microprocessor on a circuit board. Hmmm… ;-)

      They are definitely structured, purposefully designed even. And behind their very being is …

    I watched in the summer as a hornet successfully captured such a haystack. The hornet patrolled on the common clematis.
    It took almost 20 seconds for her to fly away with her.
