Finish

On Saturday afternoon I put the finishing touches on my garden renovations. I planted the remaining seedlings, laid out some pea hay mulch, hung new strings of lights around the garage's eaves and through the lilly pilly trees and swept the paths. I was on a deadline since I'd invited a couple of dozen people around for a celebratory garden party, and the first guests arrived just I was finishing pulling up the last stray weeds.

What they saw had gone from this:




The front yard after I'd bought the place and ignored it for a month.


to this:




The Flatmate takes out his frustrations on one of his many arboreal victims.


to this:




Having recovered from The Flatmate's devastation, the garden thrives under the protection of the Giant Killer Robot.


I'm satisfied that all the hard work has been worth it.

I'm satisfied that there were many tasty muffins and other hors d'oeuvres and an episode of MST3K to round off the evening.
