spring feeling again

Today we had a big fire going the whole day since all our wine clippings were still there. A lot of wind lately had made it impossible to light a fire at all. It is so dangerous when you have all large eucalyptus trees near by.

Our new volonteer, Christoffer, arrived yesterday and he was immediately thrown into hard labour.

We were so lucky having our friends Richard and Bernard on the farm as well and they helped out the whole day.

The day started a bit wet and chilly with a light drizzle but then it became warmer and warmer and after lunch we were really sweaty and dirty. Bernard taught us a bit about the fruit trees.

At 5 pm we stopped for the day so we could take care of the dogs and the chickens. We decided to take the dogs for a nice walk in the valley and apple orchard,

  1. Pretty blue flower är vintergröna, en vintergrön marktäckare vi känner igen från Sverige och även har här i våra trakter! Vilka vackra blommande fruktträd och vad härligt att ha egna aprikoser och persikor!
