Well, the sun was out for most of it anyhow.  It wasn’t hot, about 20 degrees C, but very pleasant.  We both spent some of yesterday and (most of) today in the garden.  Yesterday we finished weeding one of our garden beds, and heavily pruned one of our hibiscus plants back.  Just cutting up the hibiscus clippings took a couple of hours – it went from being about ten feet tall to about two feet.

Today C sorted out the retic in a new garden bed he and his dad finished not long ago (they did limestone retaining walls), while I dug out grass, pruned, and weeded.  The place is actually starting to look a helluva lot better.  This makes me happy 🙂

In other stuff, I looked at a couple of properties today (in between gardening).  Both of them need a LOT of work.  They both remind me of a one-bedroom unit we bought a few years ago, that needed every single thing replaced or repainted.  It was a shitload of work.  Haven’t talked to C about it yet, but I suspect he’ll want to pass, given the work required.  I’d be happy going for one of them, but we would have to get it at a really good price to justify the amount of work it needs – like, about a 20% discount on what they want.  We might be able to get one for a good price however as apparently the owner (same person owns both properties) has ‘over-committed themselves’ ie. got into too much debt.  We’ll see, anyhow.
