Great Land Grab.

Our son James moved out of home 2 weeks ago this Friday and now it's time to take our land back lol. James is like most teenagers wanted an area to entertain his friends with and not have mum & dad around 24/7.

So we gave him an spot out the back next to the veranda, near my vegie garden. This is his area eek scary isn't it?? We have put his "stuff" in another area for him to collect and we set about cleaning the area up.

Junk removed and the area had a shovel ran over it and then all weeds, smoke butts and rubbish collected and removed.

Now this is what I call a backyard blitz. mrgreen Now we don't have to pack away our table and chairs from the lawn each night after a day out the back relaxing. A place where we can come and go as we please.

Where we can have our breakfast on those balmy mornings and read the latest gardening or poultry magazine. Or a coffee, tea or skinny coke. cool

Pat then set about cleaning up a path to the rainwater tank. He was enjoying the whole idea of gardening and making the area more pleasing on the eyes. The table is just down the bottom on the right in the photo. So it's a lovely cooling area we have now set up.

Sadlycry there was a casualty in this land grab, we are hoping the birds will still nest this spring. Thankfully no eggs have been laid as of yet.

Until next time....hoo roo
