    Turf Down



    It looks bloody fantastic.
    Jamie Durie, eat your heart out !

    You rock, husband ! ( He did that brick garden border too - it's made from the bricks of the old fence the boy and I kicked down ! )





    For those interested, we went "HG Sapphire", a soft leaf buffalo.
    Time will tell how it goes.



    And P.S. - that Eggplant Parmigiana ? YUM !! Mind you, not the cheapest vego meal - about $20 of cheese in that sucker. Still, makes enough to feed a small army, and it wasn't too rich at all. It was pretty damn awesome. Yum

    Wow! Front yard looks terrific. Great handiwork hubby!! betcha can't wait to work in that garden oce you 'pop' (hopefully within 48 hours now you've had that yummy parmigiana!) Sometimes recipes shit me wit how expensive they beocme. Like that new Nigella 'Express'. Might be quick and easy recipes but they cost a bloody arm and a leg to make. Darn it.

    Crossing my fingers for you that the eggplant does the trick.

    I was wondering what grass you chose as I'm considering replacing our lawn which is infested with the dandelion things.

    What a great job your hubby did.

    Hey, the boy child just pointed to the baby meter on your blog and said "I want a baby like that one." He's obsessed with babies at the minute so come on, make it pop out so I can distract him with piccies of yours!!

    Great to see the garden. Bet you're glad it's done before baby comes. Keep us posted on the baby front!

    What a difference from when you moved in. It looks fantastic. Well done both of you on your hardwork. I bet you keep going out to just sit on the porch and ponder your handy work. Hope the eggplant is starting to do its stuff. Glad to see you made it past yesterday.

    Glossy-magazine-envy-inducing. What a man! Perfect hang-out for child, baby, mom and handyman.

    Right, well done AB. I think this means that H&B can let the baby out now. The nest inside and out is ready ;-)

    Hey Lea, it's Bron....i read your blog every week and have a laugh, or am amazed by what creative inspriation you have shared with us. I have a birth story very similar to yours when Georgia came along. I think I told you about it once....but like you, tend to block out the pain! I enquired into epi's for future prenancies, and 'yes of course you can have one', so hence my other two!!! Hey love your front lawn/garden area, good job guys. Good luck, i will be checking the birth notices to see what's happening !

    Bron xx
