Back to work..

Back to work yesterday, and what a big day. I suppose i have been gone for 3 weeks and there's lots of catching up to do.
These two photos are of a Hibiscus plant a got yesterday for the new deck. They are called "disco belle" The flowers are so big and beautiful, that I couldn't leave them there.The plant itself is a dwarf hibiscus so will do really well in pots.
I got this sweet table and chair setting from my local hardware man, but the plants and pots are from Bunnings. I don't want to put to much on the deck as it is really for the clothesline and we don't want sheets and plants fighting...

In the evening this is where you'll find me sitting. The old clothesline goes next week, and I will soon be planting in the garden around the cubby house. I do love to have different sitting areas for different times of the day and yes even different seasons.

Work again today, I am still enjoying work and the challenges it brings in running a workshop. There is still some small changes to be made to run it more efficiently but I'm getting there.
Have a great day all...


  1. Hi Mandy
    Bet it's good to be home and back to routine again. I love holidays but I love home more.
    Thankfully the cool weather has settled in and today it's only about 21C.
    We are short staffed at our dealership - our one salesman is off with whooping cough til Monday, our car detailer had an operation and is off til Monday and my office manager offside is on annual leave until Monday!
    We have enlisted our girls help so Brianna is washing cars and Kirby is helping Angus move cars and such. Busy, busy, busy!
    Hope the weather cools off for you soon,

    Cheers - Joolz

  2. Mandy, those are absolutely beautiful Hibiscus plants and they look great on the new deck. It will be lovely sitting out there in the evenings. A lovely contemplation area.
    hugs Deb
