I have been spending quite a lot of time in the garden lately. This beautiful Gordonia had just dropped off the bush and is a little bit bruised but still so beautiful. The bush is only about 30cm high but covered in buds. Hopefully I will have a chance to take a photo of some of the flowers when they are still attached to the bush.
We are gradually making sense of the parts of the garden that had the trees removed. It is hard work but well worth the effort.
The stack of logs for the fire is looking good and as we have far too much we put some of the logs out the front and today someone drove up with a trailer and was thrilled to take some away.
As some of you know, I mind the little babies next door for a couple of hours each day and their daddy helps us out with tasks that are difficult for us. (we don't have to ask, he just notices things that he can help us with) Today he climbed up on the roof and cleaned our gutters for us. You can only imagine how thrilled I am to have that done before the winter.
Good neighbours are real treasures.
