While the past week had been full of massive projects — we still took time to enjoy lunch with Hoppy and Lyn visiting from Sydney.

We’ve started work on large arc shaped orchard above the Spring.

It took a day to slash and we finally got rid of the Johnson Grass stand above the Spring. We also cleared a new area for a new citrus orchard and road side tree preserve.

It took two days for Nicholas and I to dig the 65 holes for the orchard. When finished, I dug another 10 for new citrus trees and got them in place.

Caroline helped mulch the new citrus and existing trees with the heaps of cut grass.

The next day, after Nicholas and Caroline departed, Philip and I planted near 100 Frangipanis in the new orchard in a single day. WHEW! It was hot, tiring, but fulfilling work.
