With the hot and dry conditions, growth of most of the roadside vegetation - including the weeds - has been limited but the gutter along Bickleigh Vale Rd needed clearing of gravel in (optomistic) preparation for the next heavy rain.
Whilst all the road construction work was going on, a small party worked on our two other items:
And then it was over to the Sonningfield carport for morning tea!
A dead Red Oak in Bickleigh Vale Rd and Golden Rain Wattle in Edna Walling Lane were earmarked for removal during last November's working bee and the Shire's contractor came today to remove them.
To our surprise, when the contactor had packed up and gone, we found the trees with their tops removed but the dead trunks and roots still in place. We'll have a chat with the Shire and find out why!
