Derek was not with us this week. Martin and Pat spent the time doing mega weeding. The weeds are rampant but the soil is still soft so it is not too difficult. The top of the mini slope and the bottom of Derek's slope were the focus of this energy,
In previous weeks we have continued to free up the vegetation from another planted area further down the valley where the Kauri was permanently bent.
Total joy. We saw two small dragonflies. I have not seen one in Auckland for years. Our stream must be good for them and the valley canopy is certainy increasing.
