Mow mow mow your lawn, gently down the hill. Tidledee Didledee Tidledee dum.

In an attempt to take control of the grove again, Gerry grabbed the weed-eater and "mowed the lawn" on our Manzanilla slope.

I might add that "lawn" is a bit of a misnomer. Anything from silver beet, to asparagus, gooseberries and yams have been discovered between the trees. Remnants of the previous owners' attempts at a vege patch, that we have turned into an olive grove. An army of weeds have also kept us busy for a couple of days, hacking them out by hand. As our neighbour Rob once remarked "just hack them out one by one - one day you'll get them all".

One windy day - cleaning up the overgrown grove.

Gerry in action - still smiling.
