My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Growth

~~~~~

When we moved off the farm. in 2005,  we moved

to an area that did not offer sewerage as a service.

We had to install our own water treatment plant or septic tank.

We opted for the water treatment plant.

According to council/health regulations we had to provide

300 square metres of land for the treated water

to be sprayed on to our block or garden bed.

This patch of grass was the area.

 

Soon workmen were in establishing the area.

 

Adding some kind of sand to help with the absorption

of treated water to be sprayed thereon.

 

 By 2013 we had seen some growth in our garden.

For a few years it was quite often more wet than dry.

However, it maybe since the boys moved out

and plants became established,

it is seldom wet under foot.

 And about twenty minutes ago it looked…

just like this.

This part of our garden is known as the poo-pit.

Although the water which is sprayed on to it

is nearly as clear as tap water.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-T

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-TT

(Needs to have two T’s anywhere in the word)

 
Many giraffes sighted in Africa came with

oxpeckers attached.

 


Limpy was so named because of a deformed foot.

We were told that this deformity did no hinder her

when attacking a swift-footed impala.

We did not test her ability.

 


Letters create words which create sentences

so we can communicate.

The wettest we have ever seen our block was

after a mid summer down pour.

This pool of water is where we now

park our cars….the garage.

 

Acacia trees, commonly known as wattle trees,

commence blooming in July.

 

Along with daffodils they are the first signs

that Spring is on the way.

A vignette around cherries,

 

around Corio Bay…

and around this dahlia.
