A productive long weekend

We’ve had a busy and productive long weekend at our place. In preparation for selling our house we had a bit of a working bee to get the garden tidied up and looking presentable. I made a start on Saturday by trimming the hedge and pruning the roses. I had a couple of helpers too, who did their bit to try and tidy up.

Yesterday it was all hands on deck. My parents came over yesterday to help in the garden and to be an extra couple of pairs of eyes and hands to watch the boys and keep them out of trouble. We managed to get quite a bit done, and you could certainly notice the difference in the appearance of the garden. Grandma’s chocolate cake was certainly a hit with the boys.

We also took the opportunity to clean the pram and stroller, as well as the pram that we’ll be giving away to the Dandelion Support Network. Thomas also thought it would be a good idea to clean his wheelbarrow.

 

I think you missed a spot!

Dad came over today to do a bit more work, and we managed to lop some dead branches off the trees near our driveway, and finish the pruning of some other trees around the place. There’s still a bit of work to do around the back of the house (which Dad is planning to work on tomorrow if the weather’s OK), but the front yard is looking much better.

All we have to do now is keep it looking that way, until we’re ready to sell.
