Okay - so the work is actually really hard - climbing around these steep hills lugging plants, spades, stakes etc. But who can beat this view and the feeling of having the whole of the Wairarapa spread out in front of you, while you work?? My lovely team of planting ladies, and I, have been very busy planting a mixture of properties over the last few months. This was Friday, and the most perfect autumn weather we could have asked for, on this extremely exposed hillside. Better than sitting inside an office??? Absolutely!

The larger plants were planted several years ago, and we are adding more each year. .
