Incredibly hot morning these weeks.

Derek is putting further work into his section overgrown with mainly honeysuckle and gorse. Martin and I and last week Thomas,  Gigi, Martin and I tackled the remnants of what was called the Peace Garden.Since this was started it has not been able to be attended and everything is covered in bindweed and convolvulus.

We found two new Kauri that are doing pretty well. Thankfully neither of the newly uncovered trees had had the tips weighed over and permanently bent.

We found an outline of planning in the area, someone had laid punga logs to shape the space. I nearly sprained my ankle as they were covered and/or grown over. I was able to clear some of them to perhaps perceive the original plan.

A large Macrocarpa near the school playing field had fallen down and the path had been blocked. Martin had to trim branches fin order for us to be able to proceed.
