Pruning and Playing.......

Big brother David flew in Saturday and brought his
wii with him...........hmmmmm that really doesn't sound right does it
I'm glad it's spelt different. lol.....David spent Sunday at the hospital
with his Dad, they both needed to spend time together alone....
Then last night we all played tennis and bowling...O.K I now
know what every-one is raving about...It was so much
fun, I haven't laughed that much in a long time.....Above David and Chloe
are still playing and it was 10:30 p.m by this time........David, Chloe and
Alanah left for the coast this morning.......The girls will
be back Wednesday and Karen and David will be back again next Saturday...
Meanwhile I have been busy in the Garden.
I love pruning plants and sometimes I get a little carried away.

Like Today..
I loved this topiary, but it was getting to big and was full of
wasp I decided it had to go!!!!!!!!!
Now it looks so bare..
Can you see the size it was, The second photo is taken from in the house
and you can see part of it in the right hand corner. Then above is the stump
and my bare garden.I'm not sure I like it....
Below is the ball of green...see it was getting way to big.

I will plant something else there, I'm just not to sure what!!!
While out in garden I spied the first of the
hyacinths coming through around the rose bushes.
I have finished pruning all the roses
in the garden, as you can see there is already
new growth on them.....I love the winter garden
when all is pruned and asleep...

Then in other parts of the garden it is confusing
as some of the clivias are starting to flower
I even found a jonquil in amidst the naturism's while weeding.
As you see we all a great week-end
lots of gardening, planting and lots of playing.
I hope you all had a great week-end as well...


  1. Mandy, Do the doctors think Greg will be able to come home from the hospital soon? You are just always in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Wii's are a blast! I get a kick out of watching us old folks get into the game, too. Such enthusiasm. Makes me laugh out loud and that's always a good thing. Your pruning looks better - by far - than my pruning endeavors.
