The clean up plus light on the trees.

We haven't travelled this week, a rest week from that.

My husband decided to clean the front garden, cut back the carpet roses, pulled out excess growth of daisies, removed the tall Agapanthus as they have been there for at least 20 years.  Banksia Roses, white and yellow fell over the arch near the front door, climbing roses in between the bedroom windows, always looking lovely, these have been cut very low to hopefully grow once again.  The weeping standard roses have been groomed as well.
So more light and a different look house.  Later in the month or early next month the new windows will arrive.


Agapanthus lay on the lawn before being taken away, plus the finished look of the front.

We did visit friends one evening for dinner, and in their driveway are the trees below.  I put them in a Collage for something different.

  2. I had all new windows in the house a couple of years ago, not much fun, but very glad to have done it.

    1. Oh Rosemary, did you. We are not looking forward to it, and will be pleased when it's all done. Comes a time when windows need replacing.

    1. Well this live in Gardner is sore today :) Probably take him 3 weeks to get over it.
      Yes, the collage does look spooky, it's a bit like that when driving up that driveway.
