Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

A little trimming needed

The front garden was not getting enough morning sun and some of the plants, as they grew, leaned towards the light.

The oriental lillys along the fence grew very tall, about 4' and grew towards the light. There are also other plants towards the back of the garden, which will benefit from a little more light.

This holly tree, and ornamental plum haircut, should make the leaning plants happy next season.

Another plum tree and bamboo were also making too much shade.

Now that is a little better, though I would really like to top that plum tree to be level with the roof of the house and I think the bamboo will be thinned out a little more.
