Hi there! Sorry I’ve been a little sporadic lately. I didn’t feel like blogging last week, and then my blog had a bug (which is still being fixed!), so I have lots to share with you this week!
A couple of weeks ago Ford sent me this Wildtrak Ranger and I have put it to good use. They gave it to me to help with any tasks I had around the home ie. you know, building a new house and stuff. So at the moment we’re trying to build a garden! I’m am not good at gardening, so I left the hard work to my hubby when I was away the other weekend. We bought a pile of escallonia’s to border our driveway and some pines for down the side of the house near the neighbour’s boundary…
I was happy to pick up the plants! I always have that 11 year old kid as my side-kick. I can’t do much without him! We filled the back of the Wildtrak with the plants. Very handy indeed.
The escallonia’s make a great hedge. We’ve had them in previous houses. They get a lovely white flower too. The lawn is all down and is knitting well. It’s a buffalo turf, so it gets a little yellow in the beginning, but you just wait until spring time! It will be the greenest lawn in the street 🙂
I have also ordered standard white iceberg roses for across the front of the verandah. But I have to wait until bare-rooted season, so they won’t be ready for another month or so. I am dying to get those in! Then I will also put a little hedge across the front of the roses too.
Like my sheets as curtains?? Good hey?! I am still waiting on the plantation shutters to arrive. They shouldn’t be far away. I am sure the neighbours think I am just leaving those sheets up permanently 🙂
I am still getting questions about the exterior of my home, so I thought I would put some answers here in this post…
Weatherboard product is this.
The colour is Taubman’s Endure Shale Grey.
Gutters, fascia and roof colour is Colorbond Surfmist.
Email me for my BUILDER’S details. I’m happy to recommend him!
Here is my new front door mat! I love it. It’s from Adoremat. You can design your own – such a great idea!
I’ve always wanted an amazing garden, but I am very basic when it comes to the yard.
Do you garden? What’s your favourite hedge as I need something around the back.
This is not a sponsored post, but I have been given the Ford Ranger to try out and Adoremat made the front door mat for me.
