Yard Work

two days of yard work, yesterday it was just Sally Girl & i, 'A' joined us today. pruning mulching & planting, needless to say im now had it so a leisurely afternoon for me, but first some pictures
ok no pictures blogger wont let me, so maybe later

two orange trees, one is a Lanes Late & the other is a Valencia

the people next door pulled all the jasmine off the fence so now they can see all the way down our yard from their back veranda, to say im not pleased is an understatement so i have started to plant agapanthas along the fence & the first of a row of Grevilleas, far enough away that they cant cut them from their side.

these are the Lilliypillies i planted a while ago they are full of new leaves, they are down near the compost bays we put in when we first moved in. i am hoping to grow them to fence height.

 Crochet Blanket
just the right size for the couch to keep the chill off. 

i made up these squares last year & they were just sitting in a basket waiting to become a nice warn blanket. it was going to be a single bed blanket but i didnt want to make a heap more squares. last saturday  i layed it out & found i needed 3 more squares to finish it off.
it is a 9x7 patch about 68" x 48".
i didnt want to just sew it all together i wanted something more so on to you tube i went in search & i found a tutorial for a continuous five
chain flat braid Five Chain Flat Braid 

so on sunday i sat down & pieced it 
all together, took me pretty much 
all day, i like how it turned out, i 
will be using this method again.
