    Parrots have been recently causing havoc in my vegetable garden. A big native tree next door has become the resting (or nesting) place for hosts of Rainbow Lorikeets The hungry birds spent 2 weeks swooping commando-style onto my patio and eating all the sweet, new tender shoots - snow peas, dwarf kale, and parsley to name a few - before I realised by their squawking that it was them doing all the damage. Some plants were totally stripped down to the ground. The snow peas valiantly re-...

That is not to say their relationship with Krishna has been interrupted – no power on earth can do that – but their contributions, support, and...
