Today Adrian Odgers and Ellie entertained and educated a fairly large group of Woodridge students while I started on preparing the site where the new bird hide will go.
Adrian stayed in the nursery and introduced the students to the wonderful world of orchids with some fascinating stories.
Ellie in the meantime took the groups on a walk to the arboretum showing the students the extent of the fire and the necessity of fire in fynbos.
Ellie also took the opportunity to show one of the victims of the fire and the rings on the shell of the tortoise.
Back at home the bird hide is really starting to take shape.
Time to enlist my painter
