Bryan, Paul H, Judith Wood, Lee Borrell & Susan Stewart arrived around
Rick the tree surgeon was there and had already hoisted himself half-way
up the tree at the side of the house when we had arrived. The warning came
"don't walk under the tree - Rick is up there". Forever after that day the
question on everyone's lips was "Where's Rick"! Bryan cleared away all of
the lopped branches and Rick said he would come again to do more lopping
and ID the trees for us.
Paul H was working around the alpine garden and well it looked too. He had
also turned over and edged the small vegetable garden and had cut steps into
the soil heading down to the apiary - clearing the path as he went. Lee edged
these steps with wood. The small stones also were spread bordering the alpine
Judith planted up more herbs in the herb tablet and generally tidied up in
preparation of her evening on "Medicinal Herbs and Home Remedies" this Tuesday
Lee and myself sunk the posts at the front of the house to complete the wooden
fence. We will put the horizontal planks on soon once the cement has stopped.
Katie and Tom Moreton called in for a chat and coffee.
Carolyn also arrived with "Gavin" to ascertain where we could place the
thermostats in order to try to save on heating bills.
All in all a very productive day!
