A few things we did around the outside in the gardens & inside the house after we bought our current home, which was built in 1940.
We have half an acre in town, half of that was previously a paddock for 3 horses. Over the last 6yrs that we have lived here, we have started many 'projects' to bring both the old garden, originally planted in 1940, & the house back to life.
This is the 1st little video of photographs I took, made into a slide show type of presentation. Here's a link: http://youtu.be/EzcIo0fCP54 from my YouTube page.
Even after the 1st 'round' of projects were completed, we have since done much more .. most of the work has been done by myself & hubby, Murray, and there's more yet we wish to start! Some of these projects ran at the same time .. inside work balanced with outside garden work, to give ourselves a 'break' while still probably doing too much for 2 people in their 60's!
I'll add another project soon that involved the 'evolution' of an old rotary clothesline we couldn't get out of the ground to move .. you'll have to watch for that one!
Cheers & enjoy!
