FARM LIFE
 
JackyBird farm is a constantly changing scene.
 
Very active with farm work during weekdays, there is always something on the go. During harvest times the farm is particularly abuzz with teams of people picking in the orchards and vineyards, with machinery hard at work and with vehicles burdened by all the fresh produce heading off to distant cellars and processing plants.
 
But at weekends it quietens down with only the on-duty team moving around caring for the animals and changing the irrigation.
 
No matter how hot and busy the day may have been, in the evenings the silence of the valley settles stealthily like a blanket, leaving only the fading sounds of the birds to remind one of all the earlier activities. And then, just when the silence seems to become complete, the first of the owls will start to hoot to each other in the distance, accompanied from time to time by the high-pitched barks of bat-eared foxes hunting insects in the night.
 
And of course the best show of all - the crystal clear darkening sky becomes crowded with bright stars and with the Milky Way blazing brightly; an awe-inspiring sight.
 
As the seasons roll around the plants are a captivating point of interest - flower bedecked in the spring; laden with fruit in the summer; a sea of browns and yellows in the autumn; and finally gaunt and bony in the winter as they slumber and gather strength for the coming cycle. Not to be left out, the sheep regularly produce new lambs, bleating and unsteady on spindly new legs, while the fields of vegetables and oats come and go, counter-pointed by the steady bright evergreen fields of lucerne.
