The idea for this year came from here and if you follow the link you will understand the rules.
First I had to place a mixture of items into a bundle and wrap them in fabric--I have placed a range of different papers, some rusty bottle tops, a piece of gum leaf, some bark and different types of fabrics in each bundle.
I made up 4 bundles.
These were each rolled up and tied with a strip of fabric.
Then three of them were hung outside in the trees and the fourth one was partially buried.
An Australian native tree
This tree will soon lose its leaves
This is an ornamental Grape tree and will also loose its leaves
The photos of the bundles in the trees were taken at dusk because the weather forcast was for rain and I decided to hang them out to help them on the way.
Yeah that was the idea anyway--ten drops of rain later and they are still dry and that was on the third of January.
You can tell by the dirt around the bundle below just how dry the earth is.
