Our holiday to NZ was not much of a rest so we have also had a few days away camping since being back.
I will post more about NZ later this week.

We have been straight back into life here since returning. The days are cooler and finally drying out after months of rain. As we are in a subtropical area from April to November should be our dry season. But here we are half way through June and we have only just had the first 2 days of typical dry season weather. In fact it is still so wet underfoot that the ground squelches underfoot and when you push a full wheel barrow over it you leave a muddy track in your wake.

We are using the break drum from a Mac truck to contain the fire
It is made from posts and slabs that he milled himself. He is a arborist so these were made from some trees he cut down a few years ago.

|I now get to decide what to plant around it.|
For this we organised a wood splitter from one of the locals who sells fire wood. This was such a good idea and now it is all split and just has to be moved.

What's going on at your place?.
