it is the Queens birthday weekend here & dutch husband and I have spent most of our time at Villa Maria ~ doing as much as we can ..
since having the trees cut down last week, the orange tree has bounced back already [I actually harvested the oranges from the tree yesterday.. the possums were destroying all the fruit.. dutch husband and I shared oranges for morning tea this morning.. still alot of cleaning up to do in the garden after the tree fellers came..
[a path in the back garden that goes along by the citrus trees..] I am going to put an old gate at the beginning of the path and it will be known as 'the Alice path'.. welcome to Wonderland..
[the white rabbit is the first you will meet.. don't be late!.. ] any ideas of what I can put near him?.. I have old tea cups hanging near the Mad Hatter.. and mirrors near Alice.. still working out the Queen of Hearts [pictures will come in the next few days]
[dutch husband has spent the past 3 days constructing Villa Eggplant.. the new home for our chooks.. ]
[a few weeks ago, I planted garlic at Villa Maria. it is now sprouting!]
[the is taken from the backyard, looking at the back of the house.]
it is not very attractive and has alot of work to be done. our plan is to bag & paint all the brick work.. roughly, like an old italian villa. the colours that I have chosen are earthy colours. the front door is going to be either red or aubergine.. still not sure
tomorrow, we go back again. the last day of our long weekend. and start painting my art studio.. pink walls with a feature wall of lime green & window sill is purple..
odd you think? wait for pictures! i have bought the most brilliant handles for the doors..
