A Windfall Walk with a Difference

Recently a friend asked if we could help with some planting at his property.

Even though I was busy preparing work for an upcoming exhibition (more about that soon) I went along as there would also be time for a windfall walk along the river

Much to our delight we were warmly greeted by one of his tenants – the other was off at work!

Alfie proved to be a most adventurous girl and made sure we were entertained over our lunch break.

When it came time for the winfall river walk she was coming too –

there had been a major flood through the valley recently, so there was lots to inspect.

And I found the leaves I needed to continue with my work including some Totara twigs

which are incredibly prickly

but worth the pain.

To top if off there were some amazing rocks too –

I will have to experiment with the pink ones some time in the future.


  1. What a gorgeous property Jo – loved the rocks and Totara pines.
    Looking forward to see what they give you!
    Love and hugs,

    • Thanks Suzy – It is a lovely place with a tiny house, just right for one person and a cat – the property has the river running all the way along one of the boundaries – the down side of that is the sandflies – they are truly awful!! much love Jo
