The garden progressed nicely. I demolished the hill of dirt, and started eating into another. Sue marked out circles for garden beds according to a permaculture design, with the middle one becoming a frog-pond.
Photographed this lovely kangaroo paw beside the sand-track on our place the other day. First time I’ve seen the splayed “paws”.

This is an intermediate photograph, showing the reduction in the hill, and the spread of the topsoil 13 days later.
While I was doing this, we constructed a compost bin out of shed leftovers (a very smart Manor Red sides with Wilderness Green posts), and Sue made compost with cut grass/weeds and horse manure. You can see our scythe resting in front of them.
I’ve been using the scythe lately to mow between the trees in windbreak — hard work but fun.
