A few neighbours at windows or outside clapping the NHS at 8pm :-) And yes, I was one of them !

RSPB Giving Nature a Home
Am I associating with a bunch of criminals? Tut Tut. Walking your dogs in disguise!!! Our stay-at-home rules allow daily exercise, while keeping social distancing. The 2 m has also been described as 2 arm lengths.
Some people just don’t get it – two of the US travel group who contracted the virus in the Barossa, two of them caught a plane interstate and on to home country, before their test results came back positive. Irresponsible, putting so many others at risk. We have decent health care here.
In small doses to prevent backache, it has taken me 3 days to dig up & split the overgrown clump of daylilies (Haemerocallis). I replanted a few and the rest have gone in the green bin for next week’s collection. It was made more difficult when I discovered a large root from OH’s precious crab apple growing through the middle of clump. I carefully extricated the root, mentioned it to OH . . . and he took his snips and cut off the exposed section. If I had done that . . . ! Enuff said.
PAT – I do hope your friends keep well and heed the “stay home” rules. They could be DownUnder for a while.
Today’s bans require any Aussies returning from overseas to quarantine for 14 days in specified hotel in the city of their arrival. Our state has added that any then coming home to SA will face a further 14 days isolation.
Much anger at those allowed off cruise ship Ruby Princess with no checks or isolation. Of the 2700 passengers, 162 have since tested positive. The passengers have spread across the country taking the virus with them.
On a cheerier note, houses in one suburb have been displaying teddy bears in front windows to amuse families taking a walk. (We are still allowed out to exercise.)
We spend 90% of net income on conservation, public education and advocacy
