Making a new track in the bush for pest control use gave me such a delight that I want to share it… amazing colour and shape….hidden away from human contact usually but not from the creator/ designer of such things… Amazing God.

It has been an eventful few months with the weather being warm and fine. We are quietly living with occasional guests, work on tree pruning and pest control continuing. The venture of selling trees at the entrance on a stand has been progressing well so that I have an outlet for trees and ferns that I have potted up in previous years. It is a journey of being ready, up to date with outside activities with winter weather changes coming upon his now.

I am grateful for being able to catch 2 stoats in DOC 200 traps close to the house who had killed a number of moscovy ducklings. Also grateful for help to move gravel from Blue Bluff’s cliff face onto paths between the outbuildings. An battery powered hedge trimmer has given me confidence to prune around the house… amazing. Lots of rain predicted to we will see how they will handle that, time for fires in the kitchen, water heated by the boiler with the stored wood collected over months past.
