Hello friends and family
We have had a cold week. I have started growing seeds and seedlings in the front porch because it is too cold in the hothouse. I have cleaned out the hothouse and have started preparing it for the tomatoes and capsicums when it gets a little warmer.
I finished cutting the eastern garden hedge which is an annual milestone. This gives more sun to the cherries and the pear trees. The Kowhai is in full bloom and the trees are humming with bees as I walk past.
Wednesday was my day at the Top-Tip shop which is where I catch up with the locals and their news. It is my social life! I talked to Stewart from Shag point who has not seen any YEPs there this season.
This weekend we went to the Catlins for a team building exercise. We spend so much time task focused that it is necessary to get away from the penguins and share some of natures beauty.
We went to Nugget point which is always stunning.
The Otago Shags are nesting on one of the Nuggets that used to be home to Gannets.
Have a great week!
