While waiting for a plumber, wiling away time in the garden.

The waiting game has started, plumbers they are as rare as hens teeth and they know it, I have put out feelers with people we know next looking in the local paper but the local paper is not the same one as it was last week we once got the Parramatta local but they are changing our councils and we are becoming a new area joining with Auburn and a few other areas to form a new council, I see a method in their madness Auburn council are in lots of trouble maybe this will solve all the problems, maybe.
So I'm doing some garden work or sitting down thinking about it.
Lots of growth because of all the rain we have had.
But nice and cool in here.

This is how much rain we had in 5 days I emptied the pond last week and it's under a tree.
Things are disappearing into the greenery.

Everything is messy and birdseed spilt on the table is growing.



The Jackerander lost a few branches in the wild winds last week.




The beer fairy's bike is being grown over with creeping charlie.

This was the storm lots of rain thunder and lightning.




This was about 3pm the street lights turn on when it gets dark not at certain times.
And Pidge was caught up in the tree, not game to come down to his bed, he has been missing a bit lately maybe a girlfriend or getting a bit old and getting lost, he was missing for 36 hours after we came home from the zoo the other night very rare,  he is always home by 6pm in the summer 4pm in the winter but storms he home before the rain hits.
I've got corn and pigface growing in the driveway on cement.







My favourite spot for a cup of coffee but Leroy likes it too, so I must share and wait my turn.

  4. I do love your jungle.
    We had rain too. And wind. And hail.

    Good luck with the plumber.

  6. People put bikes in gardens here and let the vegetation overgrow them. It's artistic. Is that the Beer Fairy's plan?

  8. Slowly the jungle consumes the bicycle. I guess project 'get fit on a bike' was a fail. Been there, done that.

  10. Everything is so nice and lush, Merle. Lots of pretty flowers - like a little oasis there. Funny about Pidge - maybe there is a hawk lurking around. Hopefully it is just a lady friend. x K

  17. Merle, it has been raining a lot around your neck of the woods too! We sure do need the rain here. It makes everything grow and cleans everything up. Everything is green and sure growing in your garden. Your favorite spot for a cup of coffee is charming, and I really like those little houses in the first picture.

    I hope you find a good plumber, Merle. It's no fun waiting on one.
