Its a remembrance day for me during which I remember the loss of 4 of my long-term close friends. Before a small gathering for afternoon tea we will walk to all the trees I have planted in the name of those loved ones.

am -12:30 noon for a meditation bee and Bitou Yoga.

They will be meeting in the picnic area at the end of Grays Lane,

find them just behind the beach. As they will be in the sun, meditating and …visualising the removal of Bitou using ecological restoration principals.

pants, a hat, gloves and to bring water, a picnic and beach gear,

Sunny Sunday.

Anais and Joel, from Future Feeders (http://www.futurefeeders.org/) visited yesterday to collect the turmeric stock for their future organic venture. Following time in the garden we climbed to the Night-Cap boundary and viewed the lantana slash and mulch work site.

A winter week.

A busy and different week just past highlighted by the visit of my sister Heather and her husband Bruce. Town adventures, shopping and computer problems solved , thank-you Bruce.

Heather-and-Bruce-leaving.

Damp days when my family were here, 3 days of sun-shine has followed. Heavy gales forced us back to the cabin on Friday. Hurling spearing dead branches made edge of mixed forest work dangerous. The roar of the wind in the canopy is a sound I sometimes dread. I am satisfied at our progressing work. Through the mulched lantana many rain-forest trees are growing.

And the garden where the bees are still busy, monarch butterflies developing visible through their cocoons. No frost yet for the gardens. I am hoping for a couple before the air warms.
