Why Regular Roof Maintenance Is Essential

 

Most times, the position of the roof causes it to be almost ignored by the occupants of the home. Depending on the size of the house, the roof may be way up high and sometimes it is hard to remember that it is even there. That is why, unlike other areas of the home, the roof is rarely maintained. Some people do not even know they need to maintain their roof, especially when there are no obvious signs of wear or damage such as leaks or other physical signs.

 

It is necessary to get a professional inspection at least once a year. What roofing maintenance entails is engaging in practices such as cleaning and basic repairs in a bid to strengthen the roof and increase its lifespan. It does not matter the material the roof is made out of. If you do not maintain it, it will deteriorate, and may not even last for 10 years.

There’s a Snake In My Yard! What Should I Do?
 

The most likely time for people to encounter snakes in their garden is Spring and Summer when the males are out looking for females to mate with.

 

If you see a snake in your garden or house, do not try to catch or kill the snake. Walk away from it slowly and keep an eye on it from a safe distance (several metres away). Keep your pets safely away from it and the snake will usually move on in its own time. Snakes don’t want to be near humans any more than humans generally want to be near snakes.

Coping with Grief
   

Grief is a normal emotional and physical response that can occur when we have experienced a significant loss and/or change in our lives. The loss of someone we love can result in emotional responses such as disbelief, anger, guilt, depression and a feeling of emptiness. Physical symptoms can include sleeplessness, loss of concentration, the feeling of detachment, and numbness.

 

It can take anywhere from two to five years to readjust after the loss of a loved one. Each person will react in their own unique way. There are certain chemicals released by the grieving person, sometimes for months after the death, which is normal. These chemicals change the way we think and feel. Often a Birthday, Christmas and the first Anniversary of the death of a loved one are especially difficult times.

Plums! How to grow your own Plum Tree in a pot
 

Plums are a diverse stone-fruit coming in a wide range of shapes, sizes, skin colours and tastes which vary from extremely sweet to quite tart. They are delicious fresh and ideal for lunch boxes or snacks on the run. They are also fantastic in hot and cold desserts, stewed, grilled, baked or sautéed, and in fruit salads or pies. Plums make tasty sauces for various meats or ice-cream and can also be preserved in jams. Australian Plums are generally available between November and April, but growing your own Plum tree is one of the easiest and most prolific fruit trees to grow in your garden. If you have missed the bare-rooted planting season, you can still find potted plum trees at your local garden centre or nursery.

Daffodil Day Appeal ~ August 27th 2021

The Power to make a difference is yours

The Power of the Flower lies in its ability not only to inspire hope, but to encourage people to take action.

The Daffodil Day Appeal is Cancer Council’s most iconic and much-loved fundraising campaign. It’s a chance for Australians to come together and show their Flower Power; their ability to create change in the lives of people impacted by cancer, by funding cancer research. In 2020, the Daffodil Day Appeal raised almost $1.5 million for life-saving cancer research, but looked a little different. Despite a global pandemic, Australians still dug deep and donated online to show their commitment to a cancer free future.
