TODAY it's all about the gardens and fence.
The guys set the posts in concrete yesterday afternoon, so today they can build the dog fence.
ABOVE: Now it's here, and I love it. When it's wet it looks even nicer.
ABOVE: Bex and I, and later on Griffin, pulled all the camellias out and re-homed them until the previous owners can pick them up.
ABOVE: It was a really easy job as they had only been in the garden a month or so. I noticed a few of them are pink!
Once they are taken away, I will have to think of what will be going in that garden.
They had some overgrown herbs and strawberries in it.
ABOVE: Archer was very interested in the lemon tree. He picked a lemon... but we didn't let him try eating it.
ABOVE: all my new plants are ready to get planted today.
ABOVE: Stew found the spot for Willy The Waiter... now he just has to be fixed to the fence.
And that's all for now... catch ya later.
10.38 am: Well, while everyone was having waffles for breakfast, I nipped over to Wairere Nursery in Gordonton and got a few more plants for the gardens.
Now all we have to do is plant them. *smiles*
I think we should see some action on the fence building SOON... right now our builder is playing basketball on the driveway! lol
12.19 pm: And it's been a hive of industry here this morning.
ABOVE: The 'builder' playing. ' tisk tisk'
ABOVE: Wee Archer watching out the lounge window.
ABOVE: Fence building going on...
ABOVE: And gardening. Bex and I managed to plant all 25 new plants.
ABOVE: I'm thrilled to bits with the gardens. Now all those plants have to grow, then I can fill the gaps with more later on.
Lacy and Keera have gone into Hamilton to join Amanda and Co for a birthday lunch for Keera. Keera is 4 tomorrow.
We are doing a little birthday dinner for Keera here tomorrow night.
ABOVE: My gorgeous gate has a new home now too. So, so glad we brought it with us.
Well it's been an awesome day. I love it when things go to plan.
Steve, Bex and the boys have gone home to Auckland, Lacy and Keera are here for another night and tomorrow, Miss Muppet turns 4!
