Once they were in the gate it was heads down for eating. The paddock they had been in is one of worst. Dry and not a lot of good grass, mostly native grasses that they prefer not to eat. It needs some improvement to say the least. A rest, some good soaking rain and a little bit of organic material.
I also moved some plants from the I'm past my best table at the shops to happier ground. That is, my herb garden. Nothing wrong with the plants really but new stock needs the shelf space. I'm happy. I love a bargain and three lavenders and a rosemary are very welcome.
And one day soon they can be fodder for my favourite bee. No, it isn't one of our honey bees. It's our native blue banded bee. We have quite a number of these visiting the garden and on occasion sleeping overnight in a fox fern which is on our veranda. They are cute and have a really nice buzz. Right now, they are making the most of the rosemary and the basil.
