Cyclone Recovery

We have been relatively lucky with our Cyclone Gabrielle damage. Our trees survived two submersion's  in the flood waters and while we couldn't use the fruit at least they are still growing and have even started flowering again for next year.

As soon as the ground has dried out enough we will be able to remove the debris and start preparing for the coming season.

The rain has been never ending ever since the cyclone and it has taken a while for the ground to firm up again. But the Tui's, Bellbird's, and Fantail's have loved eating the fruit on the ground and the insects the decaying fruit bring in so the sound is absolutely amazing in the block as they happily sing away!
