The week that was has been full of awe, wonder and a whole lot of hard yacka!!
The grey skies of the stormy Tuesday night gave way to a beautiful rainbow the next morning.
Some beauty on hand despite the felled trees, fences, flying trampolines, and lack of power and water for many.
I bought a hydrangea. Yummy colour.
Fresh soil spread over one of the nicely pruned rose gardens.
To newly constructed raised vege plots filled with new soil. Great effort Mark.
More bare ground, new plantings. The garden here was so low maintenance we have some areas that have very little. I wanted to show you all now so I can skite next year when I've had my way with it and it's full of colour!!
New hebes ready to get their toes stuck in and GROW!!! (hey, and look, a tidily made bed in the master bedroom). Miracles are everywhere ;-)
What a sad looking corner..............you wait........watch this space.....
My Nanna's bulbs are sprouting again this year. They travelled with me up to Auckland for three years and have been with me for at least 10-13 years. So wonderful to have her with me all this time.
I oiled the outside furniture. Which then made the deck look horrendous! Amazing how faded they become over time.
Yes. We did. What a difference!!
Clean and shiny.
We support the Cancer Society in the family. All of us.
This week Canteen bandanas have been on sale.
A wonderful cause to support.
And the baby in her new school uniform. Five years in less than a month.
I love getting stuff ready.
