More bricks...

Some more bricks fell into our laps yesterday so this morning we knocked off the last few rows of paving.  The crusher dust is being swept into the holes now and the edging will be 'haunched up' with concrete to prevent movement.  The wooden things in the lower RHS of the pic are plant stands made from old bed heads.


On another note, we have thus far picked over 13 kg of apricots from our two old trees this week.  This fruit has the most luscious taste when jammed so that will be its fate.  


This is the 9kg we picked this morning.  The fragrance in the kitchen is beautiful.  

We have a family get together here next weekend so lots more to do.

Cheers, Barb

  1. The bricks look great! Oh the smell of fresh apricots...nothing like the bland things you buy at the shop.

  2. Gee, i hope your laps have recovered from having bricks landing on them! Ouch! Great job, very neat. I wish i could be a fairy sitting on the kitchen window shelf watching all the preserving activities of all you lovely ladies. If i had said a fly on the wall, you might have sprayed me or a big horrible spider might have gobbled me up.

  3. Barb, love your apricots. The rainbow lorikeets eat the blossoms on ours. Hubby has been intending to cut it and the peach trees down for years.

    1. Welcome home Chel, hope you had a lovely visit. Yes the apricots are surely divine. I hope to have some jam to bring along to the next SLT meet up.
