Abundance

A friend of mine messaged me and asked if I wanted some pig face cuttings. 
I had been eyeing off her plants so I said a big yes please 
This is what I got!

So I got a very small portion and started planting them out. 
In pots 





And straight into the gardens. 
Lots straight into the garden! 
And I haven’t even made a dent. 
So if you want some. Come on down. I’ll pop the kettle on lol 
Good friends are priceless

Just plodding along


We have been busy doing what needs to be done this time of year 
I have finished my Christmas shopping, it’s all wrapped up and ready for the big day 
As you can see. We have had a lot of rain 
It’s so wet out there. Which is nice for the plants. Not so much for us wanting to get out there and get stuff done 
And I don’t know if you can see. But Rupert and Albus have been to have their annual haircut. Rupert got his “bits” removed as well. So he will not be grumpy as he gets older and he hasn’t got a girlfriend lol 
So life is pretty hectic. But nice
I’ve tried to visit you all as much as I could. 
Hope your lives are as blissful as mine Right now 
See ya xxx

Spring cleaning

Today hubby and I did a big clean around the house 
I did windows he pressure cleaned the house 
And we both worked on the deck 
Still haven’t finished 
But we did make a huge dent in the job 
Once we finish cleaning we will need to oil the deck 
But for now I’m resting 
I’m taking meds 
And I’m going to be in bed early 
Oh my but I hurt! 
See ya xx

Bah humbug

Usually I’m all bah humbug. 
In the past it was just money we didn’t have 
And then the kids were older 
And then I just didn’t have the energy with a chronic illness 
But I have friends who love Christmas and dianne, who I meet at swimming, really really loves Christmas 
And she offered to help me do it all 
So I finally said. Ok lol 
This is usually all I do  plus a wreath on the front door 


But now I have this as well 
Looks great doesn’t it. 
They’re not on. But there is 1200 lights on it as well!
But that’s not all 
There are two like this! 

I know. 
They do look great. Especially at night with the lights on. 
2400 of them! 
So I know have three Christmas trees 
And dianne has plans for even more 
As she is happy to come and do it all 
I’m all for it. 
I really do like the decorations. Just don’t have the spare energy 
Can’t wait until Melody comes over and sees it. 
That’s how they finally convinced me 
Melody will love it so you have to do it lol

A different view

Didn’t get a before shot. I forgot. But this is half way. It was really really overgrown 

And here it is. With an extreme make over. 
It was getting harder and harder to get large vehicles around there without the branches scratching them 
So now we have a large open space 
I have one protea to plant in there and I’m thinking of moving an olive tree that is in amongst the other trees that hasn’t 
Done much do to not enough sun 
But for now I’m enjoying just seeing the world 
There is a small tree that was struggling. But now it has lots of room to spread and grow. 
So what do you think?  The willow will grow again and it’s usually very quick at bouncing back
But this time we will be vigilant and not let it get outta control 
See ya xxx
