Helping with the native flower collection.

This farm grows native flowers for the market and it is almost the end of the season, but we were lucky enough to help with their last collection of Banksia, Kangaroo Paws and Protea.

 Deidre cuts the flowers and Seldon, the dog, supervises.

With great concentration Jack helps with the cutting too.

Kim collects the bunches and brings them to the packing shed.

Seldon and Matilda come rushing over to make sure I do every thing right.

The flowers have to be put together in bundles of 5 and be matching in size, then put into a bucket of water. Then they will be delivered to an agent who will take them to the Monday morning flower markets.

It is a very satisfying job.

Because it is the end of the season this is not one of the jobs we will have to do again, but it was interesting to help with the collection.
