All about family and houses.

My daughter and her partner are now homeowners.

They are now in the process of owning a home, it's a sweet little house close to the city where they both work but Angus is now further away but will still visit.
My son is coming down from Qld for two weeks and his wife is coming next week so it will be busy for a couple of weeks.
Some garden pictures to look at Angus is over today and I have been inside more because of all the work next door, lots of dust which was playing up with my hay fever. 
 I have a new flower on one of my broms, this one has never flowered so I do not know what it will look like.

 Angus wants to go and play in the garden so we are off to tidy up and do some weeding.
Great day lots of sunshine and no workmen next door so nice and quiet too, and no dust.



 We did lots of weeding in the back garden, it's been left alone in winter so the wandering dew just takes over.  
 Angus is hoping for old bones he sometimes finds them up here.





 Just about finished up here
 Time for a sit down and cool drink, I have many seats in my yard I need more rests than I did when younger.



 No wind today it's very still, just the sound of the birds.












 This little bloke broke his leg and it fell off but he still is smiling


 The guardians of pidge's food, they are surposed to frighten off the wild birds who eat all his food but no one takes any notice of them they don't work at all.







   All done we will throw some fertiliser around tomorrow when Angus has gone home he will eat it if he can and it's just not good for him.

    1. They don't move in for a couple of months, it's pretty much how they like it maybe some painting.

    1. It is a wonderful place to sit and have tea, not bad for lunch but after dark sometime we have spiders, they build webs at night and take them up into the trees in the morning so they aren't around in the daytime.

    Just delightful and looking 'smick' for the spring, Merle! I don't envy you that dust hangover though - going through similar this side due to clearing and packing in prep for departure - eyes and nose are a mess!!! YAM xx

  8. Love your garden pictures as always. I know what you mean about having to sit more often while working. I can't believe the change in my body lately. You will miss Angus I can see. Have a great weekend!

  9. Merle, your garden looks wonderful and sorry that you will not see so much of your daughter and Angus now, but so many little places for a dog to investigate I am sure he will call often.

  10. I love the thought that while we are going into winter - to the death of gardens - you have new life and summer. You will be my brightness.

The last 2 weeks.

I like this fence is just a bit different and very neat, mine is falling over so I will get a new one soon, maybe. Wilbur on the swing,...
