On my run this afternoon I passed through the old Clemows orchard, down near Rosedale Rd. On the public reserve between the houses and the creek, there are dozens of old apple trees, where those in the know can get free fruit in season.
I surprised two wild deer as I arrived at the Connifer Grove picnic area in Woodhill Forest this morning. Bikes travel fairly quietly, so I was only a hundred metres or so away before they bounded off. A normal height wire fence didn’t even slow them down!
Yesterday I got to walk through the new tunnel, just before it becomes a motorway. It was remarkably clean, having been completely vaccumed for a $350-a-plate black tie dinner the night before.
My mother’s landscaping project got finished today. I went over for lunch and to do a quick inspection.
Just experimenting with uploading pics.
After dropping Judith at school this morning, I ducked into the bush behind Massey University to put the finishing touches on the berm I have been making on the Royal Albany Bicycle Trail.
When I biked to the top of the nursery hill this afternoon, I noticed all the big pines at the back of the old Centrepoint Nursery have been chopped. The building in the photo is the Kauri house.
