Today

has been a day of packing boxes and walking up and down stairs and then unpacking boxes!! I know it will be good next Monday when the furniture goes in, less to unpack but I am a bit tired of it I must admit!! Late this afternoon I had a wander in the garden and then when I got home I found Shez had put some photos on her blog of our garden...well here are some more!!
the wargamers supplies, only a small part of them!!

the wisteria is in flower...same time as yours Fiona

this plant has a long way to grow...is just a baby!

looking up to the back fence


Ethel seems very happy


the fig tree is starting to get leaves

the echium (I think) is flowering beautifully, and has lots of visiting bees

the plum tree blossom is nearly finished, the leaves are coming out now

the view from the back to the house


the grevillea's are in flower and have many wattle birds visiting , the bottle brush is beautiful too.


love the colours of the new oak tree leaves and the delicacy of the grevillea flower
and finally the proud painter in his new war gaming empire!! He has been very busy painting the last few days, the room is ready for the furniture to be moved into now.
I was going to pack a few more boxes but now I think I might have a G & T and a soak in the bath with a book! Might even do some sewing later.
Happiness to you.

Hi Sue, I have been thinking of you & how you will be busy packing boxes. Your new garden looks beautiful ...I loved seeing the pics on Shez's blog too. Hope you enjoyed your G & T in the bath :-)

All that unpacking, shuffling of stuff will be worth it. What a fabulous garden you have. I was wondering if hubby had his arms outstretched like that to suggest: "what a lovely patchwork room this would make"?????

Fiona said...

what a lovely garden and your wisteria is in a perfect spot - that edging will be lovely in a few years. great going with the house - it is tiring but you will soon be done and feel quite at home!

That's one very happy war gamer there lol! Your garden is beautiful Sue. I just adore Ethel xxx

Anthea said...

That's gonna be some amazing gaming zone Sue! wow.
As for the wisteria, it looks so dainty at the moment, I just hope the structure is strong enough to withstand it when it's more robust & a heavier plant - I've seen them do some terrible damage. Your gardens look very lovely & green!

Love your garden! And Ethel's found a good spot. Hope your craft zone is as big as the war game zone.

What a beautiful place! I've always liked unpacking more than packing.

OMG!!! Mark was already envious of David's gaming room LOL When he sees the new one he will have be demanding a new home for us! Glad you are getting there slowly and surely. I cringe at the thought of moving again. Lovely garden for your soul. Ethel looks rather proud in her new environment.

Elyte said...

Fabulous garden Sue. Hope you are nearly finished with all the unpacking. Need time for some fun.

wouldn't it be wonderful if "someone" came along and did all the packing... and unpacking .. and you could just walk into a home all ready to go!.. hope the bath and G&T did the trick xx
