and it'll be planted very soon. It's teeny so I reckon it'll be about 18 months before it looks like we want it to, but it'll be worth the wait! What's another 18 months when we've waited for 7 years!!
But!!! here's Operation picket Fence in action...
Framework is all in position.
Pickets on! Gates done!
Primer and undercoat done! Still got 2 more coats of actual paint to go, but it's looking ace!!
Bob thinks it looks great! He supervised.
And the view from our house...
Since the picket fence was looking so lovely, it put the front bed to shame, so we got out the pruning stuff and set to work. There was a LOT of camellia pruning to be done. It took hours and a very sore back.
Here's the before - well, the in progress...
...and the after. Camellias are back to being nice round balls and we can actually see out over the deck. The gardenias that are in between them and ground cover will now actually get to see some light and may have flowers on them again, soon.
and since we're around the house, here's the wisteria on the bedroom deck. I adore it and the smell is out of this world.
This is our pale pink one. We've also got a lot of purple as well.
We really got a lot done this weekend. And I'd like to say a big thank you to Paul and his trusty helper, Greg ( Kerikeri Hire a Hubby) for all their hard work getting the fence in.
