How the Weekend Panned Out

The two column apples were planted

as was Camelia Sasanqua Yuletide

The carport got its laser light roofing on
We were treated to another beautiful sunset

Sunday morning my DH was putting a big metal circle into the side of the carport as he decided it needed bracing. It's going to look amazing when finished.

My lovely smooth roses were potted up until I get the garden ready for them to be put into the ground. There are 14 of them.  I also transplanted a lilac and a magnolia stellata from my garden at home but I forgot to photograph them.  Hopefully they will be ok.
Now I am taking some time out to look at the view. I will never get tired of looking at the bay. In all weather, it offers something new. Waves crashing over the dunes sometimes, other days the bay is like a mirror. From my lounge window I can see a little black dog that must live in a house behind the dunes. At least once a day he comes running between the dunes onto the beach, has a quick swim before going off home. He or she is always alone. It always makes me smile.


  1. Sounds like you live in a gorgeous place. How big does a column apple get? Will it give many fruit?

  2. Hi Deb
    You're going to freak out when I tell you this Sunday we dug out 18 rosebushes. I'm left with four that I can manage and prune without getting torn to shreds. I hated doing it but I have to be realistic and accept that i can't put the hours into the garden like I used to and i have to make it a garden for an ageing gal now not the young chick I was when I started this garden. It doesn't hurt to give things a new look any way. But those poor roses are just waiting to be tossed in the green bin and it hurts. Loved your sunset pic. Lucky you
