Adam and I set up an echidna, two white cockatoos and a magpie with the help of Steven on Tony’s farm. Our daughter Tepi had a wonderful time chasing Blondie the dog on adventures, one of which ended in a frantic search for her. We found her crying at the top of the hill a bit sunkissed and missing a sock. The farm is green after all the rain, but sheep now struggle against grass seeds in the eye and flies armed with maggots. A forest of thistle now surrounds the shroud site and the tree is healthier, thick with leaves.
