We made use of the long weekend – yes, it’s Auckland Anniversary weekend – and did some farm maintenance. We chopped the dead or fallen over Manuka trees, tensioned fence wires and added a new wire at the base so that naught Joey would not squeeze through under the fence.

The cut trees and branches had to be moved over the wetland and you had to be careful not to get stuck with your boots.

Then we finished the afternoon with a picnic underneath the favourite picnic tree.

Crisp winter mornings are fun to watch with the fog and the clouds moving, building up and disappearing again.

Flood water fun

The first flood this winter has arrived. Usually, we have 2 or more of those events, but this year is the first time we have been having some fun in it. After all, why not?

Winter is officially here

Rain and mild temperatures have led winter to the land. The trees have dropped their leaves and the moss started to grow. Browns and greens and the dominating colours, the red and yellows have almost gone.

Quiet times

While we had no guests, have not been out to see any people and had no coffee other than the home made one due to COVID-19 lockdown level 4 and 3, we fixed a few things around the farm, moved animals around the paddocks and got more feed in.
