New Paved area finished!!

Hubby and I have been working hard the last couple of weeks to finish off our new paved outdoor area. Later we will build a wood fired oven in the corner, but for now it's all ready for Mums 70th birthday BBQ next Saturday. I wish I had the 'before' photo to show, as it really was awful with an unused bird aviary and over grown trees


The little path leads to my old sewing room verandah where the bbq is kept

This is taken from the new sewing room verandah



My old wheel barrow has been moved to sit under the wattle and bottle brush tree

My favourite corner where hubby made a bird bath from some mud stone, he just ground out a bowl shape and I sealed it with some Boncrete so it will hold water. (I have put in an order for another one! Lol!) I was looking for bird baths a few weeks back only to find that they are really expensive now!

This rose is growing just outside my sliding door...wish I knew all the names of my roses



The first rose to open on this bush...it has lots of buds so it going to look pretty when it's all out in flower

I hope you have all had a great weekend!
