A New Front Garden

As mentioned in a previous post about garden makevovers, the diggers have been and gone. We have a new front garden! I usually do fencing and garden landscaping myself. However, there was quite a bit to do on the front garden. There would be lots of waste material to get rid of which would be...

Family Photos in the Garden

There’s very little happening here at the moment. Just the usual. We are working and schooling from home – although Morgan does go back to school for real next week. We’ve pretty much exhausted all of the possible walks from home. Fortunately, living on the coast does mean that the scenery changes daily so walking...
