Sorry about the long periods between posts, but at this stage, developments are very slow.

Nothing much going on around the house at the moment! Dithering about what to do with a couple of garden beds at the side of the house. This is one of them :

Need to order soil to build them up & might just plant a row of C. sasanquas. I like this one, Jennifer-Susan :

Have been adivsed by a fellow H1er (thankyou TheMax) that I will need to test the soil's ph levels before planting. Bunnings is selling a ph kit for $16 though I think we have litmus paper packed somewhere .

Also planning to move a large frangipani from the rear of the yard to under our front balcony.
I will enlarge the existing garden bed currently under our balcony & bring it out toward the middle of our front yard. Can't plant it out too far from the balcony as our neighbour asked us not to block their waterviews !!!! What could I say to that ? I had originally planned to have a feature garden located where our side & front boundaries meet, but that was going to be right in their line of vision to the river !

Unfortunately, the transplant will need to wait until the end of August. So patience is a must here.
This is the tree :

& it will be going here :

Around the perimeter of the newly formed gardenbed, I would love to plant something similar to these :

It would be great to be able to create an effect somewhat like this - still thinking about it :

Got this armchair with matching footstool on ebay today. What a steal! Buying on ebay can be risky but the chair is very comfortable & the colours go beautifully with our decor.

We're finally moving closer to finalising our light fittings. Would you believe, after 9 months here, we still have globes sticking out of our ceilings. It's funny what you don't notice if it's above your head. LOL.
I've organised to have the local light store come out & make some suggestions. We did have some styles picked out a year ago but since then we've changed our minds.

As so0n as we've picked the lights, I will be posting them here.
