Tree Change......

Things have changed in my life lately and I think it is time that I had a change!  Whether it be a change of house, change of hair colour/style, change of job.  I would really love to have a tree change......BUT there is the risk of not having a no money to live, pay bills etc.

Has anyone had a tree change.....what are the pros and cons!!!

Will I be able to do it on my own??  Country people are much nicer than city people??

What do you think!!!

It's Finished....

I finished painting my pergola last weekend and yesterday I started decorating it with my old wares, plants etc. I am sure I will move things around a couple of times until I am happy with their spot and I am sure I will buy 1 or 2 more things that will look great under it....I think I can feel an antiquing day coming on!!!  No no, save money...the little voice in my head is telling me...I wish it would get out of my

The only way to connect the downpipe for the guttering was to run it back to the house as I didn't want my pavers lifted to dig everyone knows once they are lifted they will never go back the same way or look the same.  To try and hide the pipe I have put Grandpa's Whiskers around the pipe, tied with string, and once it starts to grow it will cover the pipe and hang will look better once it is all covered...what do you think!! If anyone has any other ideas...i am all ears.

I love old metal wash tubs (& watering cans) so I placed this one under the pergola with my little gardener man to keep an eye on it.

 I also pottered around in the garden relaxing...I cut back my roses and cut some lavender flowers to put in a vase inside.  I staked my sweet peas which are starting to come on put not quite tall enough to reach the trellis. I also have some buds on my orchids that my Mum gave me years ago and this is the first time that they have flowered....maybe Mum is working her magic from above...thanks Mum!  Can't wait until spring when the all the flowers will start to bloom. Next week I think it will be a trip to buy some sugar cane mulch to put over the garden beds ready for spring.

Enjoy your day!
