Well it might be for The Weather Girls and Geri Halliwell but not for us, I’m sad to say there’s no sign of concreters for us 😦
For those of you enjoying the Spring sunshine in the UK and Germany or the delights of Brazil and Perth Sydney is under a deluge with no respite in sight. Hubby has already had to pump the pool out as it filled to the brim. Last time it rained this much I was bailing with a bucket as he was off on business and I am not au fait with the pool pump workings. That was a lot of buckets…
So we took the opportunity to drive up to Gardener’s Ridge and see how it was faring in this wet and wild weather. We drove slowly past any houses with rain gardens and swathes and had a good look around.
So we went from this:
[I’ve been busy experimenting with PicMonkey for the collages, it’s free and better still easy to use 🙂 ]
There were a few older gum trees down on our drive there due to the combination of high winds and rain. I just hope the big one behind our fence has a good healthy root system.
So whilst we patiently wait for the weather to clear I shall do a bit more research into rain garden planting. I found quite a helpful site yesterday courtesy of Ozbreed:
I’ve also been updating the House Plans and elevations on my blog to show the signed off versions (see House Plans at the top of this page). Not much different on the elevations just the rear roof set at 18 degrees to give the 3m ceilings in the split level and the fireplace flue makes its appearance and in the correct position! The Ground Floor and First Floor plans show the standard staircase with a mini landing on stair number 9 – details, details, details 🙂
