Down the Path

From the local charity shop 3 bowls and a set of measuring jugs ....70c in total for all

David has made a winding path down the bottom of the back yard. Two pink rose gardens are going in on either side ( note the heaps of butternut pumpkins) All the roses have been ordered... about 20 plus others  transplanted from another part of our property

This is one of the new ordered roses called "Father Of Peace" released  for 2015

also on order"Wedgewood Rose"

"Addictive Lure"

 The crushed river pebble has been delivered today and has to be spread on the path, and it's a lovely soft colour

The path can't be seen from the back verandah but an arbour is going in on the top of the path

The drought seems to intensified the Glory Vine this year

  1. Oooh, love the path! So you just dig a trench, edge it with loose bricks and fill it with gravel? Is there any more to it? I want a path from the house to the drive and this has got me thinking... xxx

  2. Those measuring cups are awesome Meg! And that path is fantastic as well! Looks like you all are moving beautifully into the next season! Those roses about knocked me over! Happy weekend my friend! Nicole xoxo

  3. your bountiful gardens are so lovely....

  7. The path is stunning, looking forward to seeing the end result.

  8. The the bowls and measuring cups! The scenery photos are gorgeous!! Have a great day!

  9. Your paths are going to be splendid! The roses will be lovely, too. Hi, girls! I see you! I love your apple trees. When we get a house, planting and caring for an apple tree must be on the agenda! I just need to decide if they will be for eating or making applesauce! Best wishes!

  10. Love the color of your new finds! The views around your home are amazing! I want to live there! Have a wonderful week!

  11. Your roses are gorgeous and will look so pretty around your new path. What a bargain on your pretty bowls and measuring cups! You find the best stuff. Thanks so much for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party.

  12. The path is beautiful and will look so lovely with the stone and the roses on either side. Love butternut (we call them squash!). Your view is spectacular!

  13. Your view is stunning, and those roses! What an amazing color. Thanks for sharing!

  14. I am so envious of your new garden path. One day I will have mine and I'll be using reclaimed brick . . . I hope!

  15. You have such a beautiful view! It looks so peaceful. Such great finds for the measuring jugs. Thanks for sharing and have a nice day!

  16. We are kindred spirits!
    There is nothing I enjoy more than fleamarketeering (as I call it).

  21. What a beautiful view, lovely garden and it looks like it will be even nicer. I love that pale pink rose. I a have no luck with roses but I want to try again this year. I am not sure how or what I will plant but I do want a pretty rose to be a success. I don't think I have enough sun.
    Would love to walk through your garden
