Unfortunately our sale fell through & we are now staying put for the time being. After being very dissapointed, I have now reconciled myself to it & am getting on with things.
CP has been offered a job flying the water bombers for next summers fire season which will mean he can come home every night, so at least thats one thing.
I am going to try and improve the soil as much as I can first, while its still summer, so I can get into the planting come autumn, my soil is basically beach sand so needs huge amounts of compost, humus etc.
This is my courtyard where I had the scale infested hedges, now I just need S2 to dig out the roots & I can get it ready for planting, I think I will create my little succulent garden here.
