It's been a couple of years since I had a blog. The last one was more general. This one is almost specifically gardening. "Almost specifically" translates as, "I have a very small block, am an amateur gardener who knows little of the botanical names and may struggle to provide content so I'll talk about the kids as well". Or something like that.
Alison and I moved into our house in Picnic Point, South west of Sydney on the Australia day long weekend in 2009. We spent the first twelve months of weekends doing up the house. That means that the garden is basically less than a year old. It sort of makes sense that the beginning of spring is the beginning of the blog.
Inspiration has come from the internet. Looking up gardening resources I came accross a number of gardening blogs, and have been an avid follower of them for some time. Those blogs will appear in the links to the right. Thank you to all who write them.
I think I'll begin with a few before shots of the house and property, Then some after shots before I begin the weekly or so updates. Forgive me while I work out how to do this in blogger.
The real estate photo from the front of the house.
About six months ago.
From the back of the house looking down to the converted garage.
Again around six months ago.
And finally the back deck before and almost after. Almost because I haven't finished it yet. That's in a week or so.
OK. That was a learning curve. But I managed to get pictures up. Time to work on the layout and take some more recent photos for the next update.
