On a recent bike ride I was overjoyed to see the efforts people were making in an attempt to protect their fruit harvest. With possums, white cockatoos and Rosella’s all competing for food in the neighbourhood people of all ages were going to extreme lengths to protect their bounty. For anyone with a love of fresh fruit grown by their own crop the efforts are entirely worth it. It takes after all a whole year for the fruit to grow and then the harvest lasts merely weeks or at most a month.
Not far from me, one particular tree caught my eye. It appeared from a distance like a large human eating monster, ready to multiply and take over the streets. But on closer inspection the ingenuity and effort of its maker struck me with admiration.
