If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, you’ll know we’re heading into summer now.
Please – if you can – put some water outside your home. You never know what animals will use it, but I guarantee it will be appreciated.
I started putting water out when I got home from Europe in early October – front and back garden – and I’ve had to top it up every day since then.
Animals I know for certain use that water: about fifteen types of bird, a possum and her baby, multiple cats (some owned, some possibly stray), and the odd dog that escapes its backyard and comes visiting.
So: any tray or bowl will do! If you’re hot and thirsty, so are the animals. And we have no rain in inland Australia, so it’s extra important!
We get a lot of bright pink sunsets in Canberra during spring and summer. I’ve been overseas for most of spring so far (and will be away again for the first week of November), and last night’s was the first one I got to see.
