Random images from an early morning walk

The first principle in permaculture is “Observe and Interact”. I try to observe a bit every morning to see what needs doing, fruit that’s ready to be picked, a very thirsty tree or a hole in a fence for example, it’s my favourite time of the day, wandering in the early morning light with a coffee and a cigarette, the dogs playing as they follow me around, birds and insects getting to work and in the distance the voices of people greeting each other as they walk to their fields.

Here are a few random shots from this morning.

  1. Wow, Marco, really envy your life. Hope I could join you one of these days for such walk in the morning. It’s a kind of life that I have always wanted. Will keep this as one of my target for this year. 🙂

    • Hi KB, I do hope you find the time to come and visit us, we are not that far…..I look forward to it.

      Keep well, I also hope to come to Singapore soon.

  2. Marco,
    I could not imagine you living any other kind of life..I am happy to witness the fruits of hard labour bringing you such joy. It’s a long way from the Hacienda 🙂 My fondest wishes. Cheryl.

  3. Really beautiful photographs. You live in a beautiful part of the world.

  4. Marco, I have not kept myself in the loop and only now have seen these wonderful photos of your part of the world. For some reason they remind me a little of the early days spent in India in the monsoons when everything was lush and green. Am really enjoying your blog. Thanks. Vj
