Perhaps the season is really changing and the cooler weather is beginning. Already the days are noticeably shorter. Well, so they should be as the equinox is just about upon us.
Any rain will be gratefully received, not only to freshen up the gardens and the forests, but also to reduce the risk of wildfire. Last week, near Balingup, we experienced a bushfire emanating from a nearby plantation, that took three days to control. Friends, not far from the fire, decided to move out whilst the heat was on.
Time to make use of the gardener's friends: rakes and secateurs to tidy up and reduce the build up of fuel.
The garden will look more presentable, too!
