On Fridays, we still go to Whenuakite to the Collin's house to help. They have lots acres with avocado trees, citrus trees, garden areas and lots to do. Sue is the sweetest lady on earth. She is in her 70's and her husband is in a care facility. We usually get there about 9 and work till noon. She then has us come in for "morning tea" and some chatting. Since we don't drink tea, she gets us a lovely drink called lemon-barley water. It's delish. She also likes to make us "mouse traps" which is toast with bacon, sweet onions and Edam cheese or sometimes orange muffins made by chopping up an entire orange (peel and all) and adding it to the mix. We love Fridays! Here's some pictures of her place in the spring: the circular driveway with her house on the left
The garden area, where I spent the morning getting it ready to plant and weeding the part I already planted:
The avocado trees out past the backyard hedgerow:
And some of the citrus trees (from which I picked oranges and lemons):
It's a heavenly piece of property and we always love being there!
