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.
