blame it on the rain

backyard

It rains sometimes in Hawaii. We have been getting unusual rainfall for spring here. Fortunately the rain comes and goes fairly quickly and on the days we are working outside it is a welcome reprieve from the persistent sunshine. You can see here that the view after the rain is breathtaking.

Z and I worked a seven-hour day yesterday…a whole lot of weeding. Our afternoon yoga session was just the thing our aching backs needed. This farming gig isn’t always a walk in the park!

Today was nice however. Z and I got dropped off at the beach during the afternoon for an hour or two. We then came back and worked a half day – Z sawed and painted signs for the garden and I sanded a wooden walkway in front.

The landscape architect was here today making plans for the labyrinth Myra is installing in the front yard. So far there are only lines spray-painted on the grass but it promises to be quite a sight.

It looks like a bunch of us will be doing a lot of digging tomorrow. We have to dig through the grass and 2 inches into the soil for the length of the labyrinth. Believe me – it is long. Should be a nice workout.

We have been invited to go on a very exclusive tour of the rainforest here on Maui. Myra has a friend who worked for the Nature Conservancy – she has access and invited us. Everyone in the house is going and it promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
