A Brief Botannical detour with Mum and Inaya


I had to move the cattle, then decided the back fences needed checking as well. Inaya came with me and carried the camera while I hunted around looking for any loose wires. As those in farming all know. Bad fences means stock getting out usually into the wrong places. Since we were down in the back of the farm Inaya asked if she could take a photo of a young nikau palm (Rhopalostylis sapida) These palms are the world's most southerly palms. This shot is hers.

  1. Cool! She's got the palm in the right place, in the center of the photo :-)

  2. I told Inaya "If it looks nice take the shot" Which she did and it turned out so well for her. I think she did really well - I noticed one of the fronds had been chewed. Probably by the old man (Ed the oldest horse we have)I can't blame those rotten possums this time.

  6. By the way I'll be sending you an email today, so be sure check it later! And fingers crossed that your cows are bred too! I told Amy I was going to start a new blog featuring photography I've taken of things here on the farm, rather than do the farm pic of the day on my other one...I've got lots to post!

  8. I'm laughing here. It's nearly 1 a.m.here on Tuesday morning. Now I can work out the times!!! I'll pick up the email probably later in the morning in about four hours or so - I should be in bed and had better get there or I never will!. Really hope those cows are in calf. Okay so we link all the blogs together. Great idea!!! This is going to be fun. Once I'm sorted with all the stuff to do with work etc I'll finalise that other blog for the art stuff. Fun fun fun!!!
