Shrapnel damage
Legs of a whippersnapper after a solid day cutting back the jungle

Did spot an Orchard butterfly sheltering from the wind:

RE: Shrapnel damage
That's what my arms look like when I go near the bromeliads!! I swear the things take a swipe at me when I get within reach.

The fella in the house up behind the units goes feral with a whippersnipper every couple of weeks. He give that thing a workout. The 'shrapnel' hits the colorbond fence and it sounds like the shootout at the OK Corral!!

RE: Shrapnel damage
Max, I don't have any pictures but ...... the very first time in our new house, after whipper snipping in shorts, I went on an afternoon walk and ran into some of our new neighbours. None was rude enough to mention the blood running down my shins.

I wear longs now.

Tailoring the world economy around the climate cult's demands is akin to demolishing your house to avoid the risk of it catching fire one day.

Yep. Nice end to Spring. Very pleasant.

RE: Shrapnel damage
You are all kidding! It's cold! In November!! It's not supposed to be cold in November, what is wrong with you people??

I'm sitting here with a fleecy jumper on and still cold!
There's an icy Southerly blowing, the lizards have all gone back into hibernation, the birds are hovering around the door for freebies due to lack of insects and flower nectar.

The bloody Ice Age Cometh and you're all pleased?? Go and burn a tree or something, quick! arrrrghhh!!

The whippersnapper guards are 'ere.
Feel great, as yet untested, just waiting for the grass to dry a bit
