Spicers Gap

Spicers Gap from the back deck

Spicers Gap reappeared yesterday after WMBM spent the previous two afternoons pruning, trimming and finally chainsaw pruning the conifers that run between our and the neighbouring property. In the "early days" before access through neighbouring Cunninghams Gap, the oxen, drays, horses and humans were hoisted up the sheer face quite literally - definitely not an experience for the faint-hearted.
Some serious height reduction has occurred - and once again our early warning system is back in full view. 
The secret garden is in full bloom with a colourful competition between the spider lillies and crepe myrtles. The little people aren't complaining and the wild double-barred finch population has exploded this summer. Babies and nests everywhere ...

Crepe myrtles and spider lillies

What an absolutely gorgeous secret garden- no wonder the birds love it.
