Its raining, and there’s 100% cloud cover, so its all but an ultra dedicated ultra small crew of gardeners that arrive for a flying visit today. Still, in a fully focussed two hours, Sue, Supapon and I managed to complete our streamwatch data collection (results below) propagate a few more fragrant old roses, apply compost to a couple of beds, sow even more calendula, plant a couple of Prostantheras on the stream bank, before enjoying keyhole cake, lamingtons and a drop of home made cherry brandy from Supapon to welcome to this new citizen! Cheers!
