I am calling for help with the heavy pots today. Unwrapping my green roof because all the fuchsias have sprouted already & I need to hang them in there! Crocus blooming where I can't see them & the chicken fence needs to be back in place to plant any more seeds out in the veg garden. Too much heavy lifting for me after I slid down into a ditch two days ago & fell into the mud. (the 6" of water was gone than goodness) A stinky Surprise! Today I am not moving real well but my back is OK thanks to Bowen Therapy yesterday. Outdoors on a sunny? day is the best therapy to move again. . .

Could be moving over to brand new laptop sometime. Tech says the age of it.  Wonder how William is doing, weather etc.?

As for pics I don't know how yet with his tablet.

Not much paint left on my house either, probably lead paint all in the ground from the house with my bad luck. Was just looking at the house from the road today fussing about it. The fellow who used o live in the trailer used to turn on sprinklers and water the house all day. grrrrrr!

Like Spring today, picked up some garden fencing to almost finish veggie gardens, some ground was still a bit frozen.  Next was trimming what I did not get at late Fall.   Oh I agree the smell of mice. Neighbour had a bad time last year and if was at the door talking with her the smell.

I would like to go back to Australia for #4 trip visit friends in Melbourne area. Does a coach go up your way. I remember a bay and  I think a tourist shop nearby. Hadn't seen many Canadians for awhile. If I get up that way maybe we can meet. Yes, I like my 20C/70F after sun rises and then goes down.

Have fun Vicky and post some pictures. Glad you are still working on your grandparents property ( now yours). You must be slowly making it better.  I am just about to get the pressure cleaner to the peeling off painted bricks of our house. Hoping to remove the paint from the foundations and chimneys and take it back to the natural brick. Then just paint the weather boards again.

Dang it 3rd time better be a charm this tablet keeps sending me out of here when I get a bunch written. Got my chicken wire and found a 2 pack of soaker hoses at the thrift store for $14.99. I quit using poisons didn't want a hawk to eat a poisoned mouse or have them dying in the walls. Now just have to find the energy and pray for good weather to stay around to get my beds built.

Vicky don,t you hate the smell of rats and mice. I have had rats move into my orchid house. Rat poo on all the shelves and pots, I hose it off and go in the next day and its back. I was wondering why my seeds were not growing in there when they should. I think they became rat food. We had to lay baits. I don,t like too because of our dogs. We have a vacant block next door, so Ken nailed rat baits high up on the other side of our fence. No more rat poo, Dogs are OK.

Oh, Nancy we must be tuned in to one and other. Your Campbeltown is Camperdown and that is the town where I live. You turn off the main road in Camperdown and go to Port Campbell to the 12 Apostles. I thought Canada was in metric and I have my air con and heater set at 20c as well. Must be the cosy spot for humans, LOL.

Oh well give it a try. If I could lay another two slabs cement and get help to pull tent trailer so can clean up underneath, then I can work around the last years veggie garden and have space to open up tent trailer totally.
