One garden, two houses, some lessons from the past and hope for the future. A look at life in New Zealand, a bit of history and a Morris jig or two.

My Favourite Window
September 2, 2010
A Good Wall
This wall has always captured my imagination, with its solitary little window facing the afternoon sun: a 19th Century failing of Northern Hemisphere builders and planners to adjust to the Southern Hemisphere's solar sweep. And now this space is poised between picturesque dereliction and agressive takeover by wild plums.
I have plans... But I will let the trees bloom once more before I take to them with my new chainsaw!
