CATCH UP

Having the house on the market during summer ensures we never have an idle moment.  The grass is growing so fast at both houses so the mower is being shuttled between the two and try and stay on top of things.  As well, the weeds are thriving so they also need to be dealt with.

I really miss my Boonah garden and was very happy to take this bunch of roses home from our last visit.
Mr Lincoln, Double Delight, Golden Girls


As we now live near the "Rose City" (Warwick) I will certainly be planting another rose garden and including some of the above varieties. 


At present we are getting the sheep and chooks sorted out.  We inherited three new chooks and lost one of our originals so we are net +2.  The three new ones are all good layers so a good supply of eggs now.



The sheep have settled in and are fat and happy.


We've started putting in gardens.  Firstly along the front fence.  As our house is close to the road we wanted to put in some trees and shrubs to give privacy and kill dust.  The first run of plants are in but we still need to kill the grass & weeds and then mulch.



Some views around the place.






And from my kitchen window...




After some good rain things are looking decidedly green again.

  1. Such beautiful views you have. So relaxing to look out beyond. Im sure you will have the garden under control very soon. Good thing is that you are starting from scratch and can make it just how you want it.

  2. Barb, you do have a lot of work ahead of you. Did you get much rain? I got home last night and it is like a jungle. Is that hill on the right the one you see when you are on the Highway and approaching Allora? Just trying to get my bearings.

  3. Hi Barb, how lovely are your views?! I would love to wake up to all that greenery every morning. We passed through Warwick when we were in Queensland in 2010. It was such a shock to us to find how beautiful Qld really is, no wonder people move there.

    I hope everything is going well in your new place :)

  5. I came to your blog through "Eight Acres", and recognized that mountain in the last photo. My mum lives in Hendon (near Allora) and that is the mountain which tells us, we've nearly arrived! We live near Toowoomba.

    Anyway, I look forward to catching up with your blog.
