Walnut Tree Cottage

Broadband is connected! It has been a long 10 days without it.
Some pictures of the new garden. The house is still a work in progress (a nice way of saying it is still a bit of a mess) but we are getting there and I will share pictures when it is a little more sorted.
The sign out the front.
One of the walnut trees.
The view from the walnut trees to some of the roses (I say some as there are quite a lot - I'm sure I will get a crash course in rose growing from Mum).
I feel so scammy inheriting such a great garden. We have picked some passionfruit already.
The side of the house.
The view from the deck.
A gorgeous grassed area for playing.
The vegie patch. Quite overgrown and full of weeds, but it won't take long to clean up. It is already fenced and the soil underneath is wonderful.

The snake that was in the shed the other day. It was quite stuck in the fruit nets. So the wonderful (or slightly crazy depending on how you feel about snakes) snake catcher cut it out and was taking it home to cut the rest of the net off before he let it go out in the bush.

What a gorgeous garden Kate. I am sure you will love scamming all the produce too, lol!! I dont think I would like the addition of the snake though.

From someone who's been on the move (country to country) for almost 20 years, this is heavenly! I have seen the other posts which shows your yard, verandah, gorgeous wooden furniture - wow! The snake...eeeeww!!! We had similiar problems when we live at the edge of a tropical forest in Singapore. Had to lined the perimeter of our garden with sulphur.
