Renovations and decorations

The back verandah has been occupying my thoughts and time this week.  The floor boards look so much better now they are painted witrh Cabots timber colour in Oyster Linen which is the same colour as the weather boards.

The window frames and other trim are Dulux Malay Grey.

I am planning to replace the furniture with some new pieces in grey and cream.  In the meantime I am adding some splashes of red to brighten the area up.

The place mats and the two sarongs used over the seats are from the op shops.

I have added a lovely glazed pot and lemon tree from Diacos Discount Nursery which is just down the road.  Mario helped  with advice and lifting things into the car for me.

We have redone this garden and added some pebbles- the neighbours are now working on their garden too. Our gardens are seperated by chicken wire fencing so we virtually share each others' plants which is really lovely. It is great to have good neighbours.

This time of year we have beautiful blooms and aromas.  This daphne is so pretty and will be planted near the boronia bushes which are in bud.

 We have lots of violets in various parts of the garden and there tiny flowers are always welcome.

Looks really pretty. The pebble mulch really makes the plants stand out! Relaxing deck. xox
