It all looks wonderful!! 16 mos. & part of that was winter so you have really been busy. The pool & castle look so good & deck & saved wood, just really amazing how much you have gotten done. Love the orange flowers in pot by pool are they Tiger lilies? And the purple or blue flowers in some of 1st pics & yellow "faith" sign. Really looking like a great "junker" lives there!! Jan

It's just lovely, all of it. I would work myself to death if I had that big slope to garden. But with your energy that doesn't seem to be a problem. I'm still in awe over the pond and deck too.

calamity...I am lovin' your "free wood" trellis' & fence topper! Wow, lookin' great! That narrower one with the lattice is a cute idea! TFS those pics!

Your sloped yard is looking really good...hard to get "green" going in those places! Your hard work is definitely paying off!

The pond pic...just in AWE...love that your lilies are bloomin' ... I have one bloomin now, too...and they are so beautiful! Castle looks so serene in your pic...what a beautiful spot to sit & enjoy! I've always been drawn to that "circle of people" pc when I've seen it at times...what a perfect place you've given it!

TFS & keep updatin'...you are so motivating! Jeanne S.

I'm exhausted just reading all the things you have accomplished! lol! Your castle really looks wonderful by the pond. Aren't water lilies some of the prettiest flowers? I just love them. Your free firewood creations are spectacular too. Love the trellis with the birdhouse ala jeannespines creation. Hmmmmmmm...I can see there is plenty of room on the hill for more garden junk! ;^) Keep those wonderful pictures coming!

The waterlilies in bloom add the final gorgeous touch to your castle pond! And is that flash of gold one of your fish that I see swimming near the surface in the middle?

I love the gardens on your back slope, and also the bottle tree that I see near your house!

Oh that's right, Cait, our summer is your winter (and vice versa!) We need more Aussis on this forum to post garden photos during the Australian summer months! It would be an inspiration to us in the northern hemisphere during our winter months as well.
