Instead of my rock orchids flowering to fade to sculptural seed pods as in every other year, by the time I got back after a week away, they had gone! High winds? I wondered.
Nope. Renegade wallaby, spotted in the act, stripping each stem of blossoms.
Why, when never before?? I will never know why such apparent perversity manifests itself, but I hope this is a once-off!
But if my green surrounds and its blossom bounty helps me recover in between bouts of talks, so it does for many others. At the 350 degrees Divestment Forum in Sydney I’d met Georgia from The Green B, another rural convert, and we swapped website addresses.
As I think my readers would like hers, the link will now be permanent here.
Since then, I’ve received video links to those talks, so here’s mine.
There’s since been another Forum in Hobart and 350.org will be hosting further forums over the coming month.
Full details can be found by clicking on the linked events below and in the attached flyers.
Perth — To be advised
And while I’m putting my ‘house’ in order here for summer, my Gypsy camper also now has better accommodation, with shade sail for hail or harsh sun, a trickle solar charger for its battery, and cement strips for my ute to find its way to connect more easily.
