and now for something completely different....


ahh progress...yesterday was none too hot about 33C so i got a lotta diggin done...cleared the space as best i could..who put those pipes there!! it looks small here (about 1 meter x 700mm x 75mm) and dug a couple of post holes for the pergola to go over, the lemon tree is going to have to share some sky space with a beam going right through the centre.. she'll be right!! ended up concreting last night as its heating up towards the weekend and that would be just nuts to hope for no cracks...

anyhoo pics of the unveiling tonight hopefully, that is a bit of a hot spot in the corner and hence the need for shade and dont ask why its taken me 3 years to get done...after this there will be a spot of fence reno and some bamboo screens to go up too should be lovely and a section for mozaic me thinks would be nice.. well back to making some pots today and awaiting the work rush of next week!!
