Point + Shoot : Many Hands

On a whim, it was decided that our poor neglected garden deserved some attention this weekend.
Since having Missi, I seem to be directing all my tender loving care in the direction of the bub, the boy, the dog and the inside of our home.
Leaving, unfortunately, very little energy/time/inclination for the great outdoors.
I only just manage to keep the pool clean, the patio swept and the garden weeded these days.

Hopefully, yesterday's little blitz will keep the poor garden hanging in there until...
um - I guess when the kids leave home, really!!

Have I mentioned how fantastic our street is?
A thousand times? Excellent.


See that trailer my big boy helper is in?
Not ours. It's a neighbours.
See that arm shoveling?
Not ours. It's a (different) neighbours.
See the pro serious gardening tools that are out of the shot.
Not ours. They're a (different again) neighbour's.
See the chatter throughout the day and the 'job well done' drinks and dinner that were shared after?
At ours - but with more neighbours in the mix.

You can't buy the sort of community we have managed to score here.
Literally - 'cause no one's selling if they can help it!
Our humble little street gives a whole new meaning to 'prime' real estate for me.

Ahh, you are so so lucky Shar, good neighbours really are a blessing. We have pretty nice neighbours on the whole... but yours sound like absolute keepers.
Glad you were able to fix up the outdoor areas, I don't know how anyone has time to garden, with small children around, it's just so time consuming xo

Oh wow that is amazing! I wish wish wish we had that kind of community going on here. We only moved here a few months ago so maybe there's time and hope! xx

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of
any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you
would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run
into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
