The grass in the back paddock has had a chance to grow really well after a wonderfully wet November and December. It very much looks like the drought that has been with us for the last seven years may finally be on its way out. I wouldn't mind letting the grass grow, were it not for the snake hazard. Unfortunately, our ride-on mower broke down and we won't be able to get it fixed until early January.
After spending a couple of rainy afternoons (isn't it wonderful to have rainy afternoons!) with the boys drawing mazes, we came up with an idea... Why not create a real maze outside?
J got the whipper-snipper out and spent 30 to 40 minutes or so cutting a complicated path into the high grass, with many side-paths and dead ends. There are different shapes, straight lines and spirals. Our maze covers an almost triangular area of approximately 350sqm.
We all had a go at walking the maze. It was actually quite difficult to do, even for the ingenious creator!
The boys thought it was magnificent, including young T (in the backpack).
