Tanderra, Maryborough Victoria
Some pictures of our farm "Tanderra" at Maryborough.
Tanderra is an aboriginal word for place of rest.. Ha Ha.
Mid-Winter, with a white frost on the ground and very
cold, well by our standards anyway.
You can see the hayshed, full of baled hay in the
background and just in front of that our main water
tank, 150,000 gallons capacity, on the left the
machinery shed/workshop is nearly finished, but I
have not built the 3 car garage yet, it will replace
the old ramshackle one on the right.
That's me, minus a lot of poundage, engaged in one of the
most backbreaking things I ever tried, Shearing.
A "Golden Wattle" on the property, this tree had the most
blossom on it I have ever seen on a wattle tree.
Carting hay, for winter stock feed, always a chore at the
start of the hot weather, but it was a nice feeling knowing
we would not have to buy in fodder the next year.
Yet again blogger has managed to mix up the photos, this
one shows me mowing a crop of oats to bale for hay, so it
was meant to go before the hay carting one..... oh well.
