I was charmed by this simplest of water features: a tiny spout trickled water from the lower stone arch, falling into the smallish pond below.

Narrapumelap Homestead was open this Easter, drawing visitors from all around. The first hint of the marvels that lie beyond is the handsome pair of ornately wrought gates, featuring a central “W”.

This Easter long weekend has included a couple of trips to the farm to check sheep. One of the younger dogs wasn’t handled much before being re-homed, so is quite wary of contact with people, dodging out of my way when I reach to pat the pack.
