What an awesome weekend.  First, Friday was a holiday, so three day weekends are especially great.  Friday was spent taking care of all the regular stuff, laundry, mopping, etc. ,  I had a few friends stop by and pick up some “groceries” from the garden on the way home.  Then Saturday and Sunday, we spent fixing things in the garden (securing the duck homes for protecting baby ducks and fixing the roof on the shed.  Then we planted a bunch of things, a kumquat tree, some watermelons, radishes, carrots, and some pretty flowers in the garden.  We enjoyed the pool all weekend.  It was hot, and water was cold, a perfect combination for a perfect weekend.


Our ohia tree is in bloom right now.  Rapid Ohia Death is a big concern on the Big Island. It is decimating forests on our Island.  Our tree, our only ohia tree, is currently not affected.  We’re doing our best to keep it that way.
