In November 2004 we started the journey to bring a baby home from China ... five years later, in October 2009, we met Isobel Pingqin.
Our little livewire known as Izzy.

Sunflowers and Sheds

The very back section of our backyard was totally neglected when our house was being built.  The vege garden became a weed garden, and a temporary home for transplanted plants.  Our bay tree actually grew into a "tree" in the vege garden.  The garden shed sat in the middle of the yard, falling apart and a large pile of wood grew.  Thistle took over grass and the whole area looked like an abandoned house.
So we've started to now clean it up.  It is a work in progress and will take time, but we're making progress.  The shed has been given a makeover, pulled apart, put back together and washed, and moved to its new position. 
The vege garden has some herbs, still no veges as some plants are still residing there temporarily, but what has excited us the most is our sunflowers.  Izzy had some seeds so we threw them in there. What we now have is quite amazing.  These sunflowers are HUGE.

The backyard at the end of the building phase - not looking too good.
Starting to tidy it all up -
I just need to convince someone to throw away all that wood on the pile!
