Because it is such a glorious day, I decided to get outside and weed the front garden. Much to my annoyance and embarrassment, I have allowed the front garden to get out of control and over run by weeds. It is a vastly different area to the back garden, which is easily maintained as it is exclusively tropical plants.
The roots on some of the weeds were over a metre in length and removing them took plenty of effort. I still have about 3 metres of garden bed to do before it is complete but for today, that will do! I was absolutely filthy, due to the dust flying around and my face looked like a pandas, as I was wearing sunglasses. Hahaha. A hot shower, with plenty of water pressure was bliss and I feel human again.
I have decided to plant the driveway with lilly pilly plants as they are hardy, drought tolerant and grow rapidly into a lovely hedge. Here they are also known as “neighbours be gone” for obvious reasons LOL. I am not adverse to chatting with my neighbours but I hate being ambushed each time I go outside my front door, so the screening hedge will be an aesthetic and practical addition.
Yesterday, I called in to see Prue and she came with me to the chicken and meat wholesale outlet because the freezer was in desperate need of replenishment. I do not eat any meat at all, so with Prue’s assistance we selected various items and D bought a huge slab of rump steak, which has been sliced and packed away in the freezer.I asked Prue what she needed and she selected some chicken Kiev’s and a few other bits and pieces to take home for her freezer. One of the bonuses of shopping with your mother !!!!!
I am going to make a coffee and sit outside and enjoy the rest of the afternoon. 🙂
