Look At Me Now

Yes dear reader it's been a long time ... but look at me now.

We've in, we're settled and it's like we never left.
I'll be updating some pics over the next little while to show you how the House That Ben Built is faring.

These pics show the back of the house and the gorgeous curved wall.
We planted some mature white crepe myrtles and they are exactly what were were after, giving a lovely softness to the garden.

Jan Louise I can't believe how lovely the trees look ! They were just coming into bud when we left in January and look at them now. I always felt nothing could be as beautiful as the roses they replaced (lost in transition)...but the blossoms just soften it all as you said. Marvellous darling....

Yes they are lovely .... the blossom actually looks like snow which has gently settled on the foliage. And the white is luminous in the garden - exactly the effect we were after. I love it when a plan comes together!
