Saturday 16.

Early start after a late night. 7 am start with Jayne and Tim, in a 3 hour seek, scamper and sliding down slopes, in our latest attempt to remove the flowering jump seed.

I think by the weight of the bag we removed, 80 kilos was up rooted.

Roadside mowing machine is heading our way and it was paramount we remove as much as we saw before the seeds are scattered. All at the end of flowering now so seeds not mature yet.

Great morning and a satisfying effort. 8 Saturday mornings, Jayne and I, with Tim joining us later, with Robyn picking up and taking the jumpseed to the tip.

A verandah guest has arrived. Curled around the antechinuses down ward pole from the ceiling, we danced around it last night. This morning, when we returned from work, it was happily stretched out. It is thin but its colours are stuning. A scar from an injury, barbed wire, a whipper snipper perhaps, is visible along its body.
