What would a home in the Huon Valley be without a Huon Pine. This one might be up to a metre or two by the time Zach finishes high school.
This is our Huon Pine‚ planted Christmas 2008‚ eaten by the local fauna‚ but still growing in August 2009. Should reach a metre tall by 2016.
Where else would a good Taswiegan be in Autumn - at AgFest looking to see what toys are around‚ and these are the boots to do it. Thanks for the boots Kevin.
Already used well and used often. Imagine what will happen when we get started!
Kerryn couldn't resist this one. And who said we were moving closer to heaven.
When you're as beautiful and personable as Brekkie‚ why wouldn't you fit in?
Spring time in temperate climates produce some beautiful blossoms. This is in the front yard of our Huonville rental.
We may have done some clearing‚ but there are still a couple of trees left.
The clear serenity of an autumn afternoon as the shadows lengthen.
Never stand between Kerryn and her goal!
Our first purchase to be taken directly to the block. Just to burn the briar cuttings and roots.
This purple couple are just a small sample of the fungi which grow on our block in the cooler months. Hopefully‚ there'll be some truffles within the next decade.
Well‚ it's not Buck‚ but just as good a driver I'm sure
Kerryn shows where the new driveway will go.
This was our first choice of corner post‚ but we may move further down the hill if the firemen agree.
We have spent some time getting the best orientation for sun and view.
While the rest of the country might be in drought‚ it's a little wet here at the end of September.
The wettest winter since 1947 gives us our own littl pool in the back yard and an excuse not to go into the shed.
One of our beautiful natives just 'falls out' of the waterlogged front yard.
We may have webbed feet‚ but one of our children (admittedly adpoted) seems to be thriving.
This little fellow is just waiting for some sunshine to strut his stuff.
We'll all be ruined said Hanrahan‚ before the year is oot!
This is a small section of one of the trees we had to have cut down for the house site. It was estimated at about 2 ton and will be used around the yard.
With his talent for using the excavator‚ it was easy to move the log.
Kim and Gus take time out to meet the next door neighbours. They were very friendly.
For those with some extra energy‚ we have been building a wood heap. Please make sure that your axe is sharp.
For our youth is spent
And our backs are bent
And the snow is in our hair.
Gus helps Aunty understand what she needs to do.
The Queen of the block contemplates her next move. (What will Allan need to do?)
The new driveway leads down to the house level from which this photo was taken.
You can get some idea of the size of the wood heap form this photo. As you will note from the blog‚ Stuart and Neil and thier mobile saw mill were brought in to increase the amount of saw dust and decrease the size of the heap.
