That was an excellent last mental-health-Friday off. Got all the new garden equipment (sans mower) mounted tidily on the wall in the garage, and also put in a bunch of new hooks in on the other side to similarly neaten up the stuff that was hanging there. I also took the opportunity to take the new blower for a spin to clean the floor of the garage out a bit. It's got a "Turbo" button, and HOO BOY am I glad I had the arm strap attached because it was actively pushing backwards against me!

We've also gone whole-hog and replaced ALL of our outdoor gardening equipment with battery-powered stuff from a company called EGO. It's apparently extremely well-regarded and is as good as petrol so I'm keen to see how it goes.

It's 30°C and 12% humidity, and I've powerwashed the back patio and mowed the lawns. #pooped (Give me this dryness over a humid day anytime).

What a glorious morning for a spot of gardening.

Hell yeah, that's a damn fine-looking front yard!

Fortunately I was able to trim our front hedge this morning before it got really hot. (Even so, it wasn't even 10am when I'd finished and it was already 32°).

Phew, first project of the long weekend done. We've got a section of the yard around the back where the hot water system and air conditioner live and where nobody ever goes that just constantly gets choked with weeds. I pulled up as much as I could and sprayed it with weed killer. And now, I'm pooped.

So since my last front garden update (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1397), I realised that that nice cheerful blue planter box was busily rusting, and the left-hand lavender died because it'd grown roots through the hole in the bottom and when I lifted it up I destroyed those roots. So today we got some new lavender and pots and did some rearranging! (The right hand lavender had also mostly died due to the same issue, but part of had managed to hang on).

Our front garden is looking nice and green and colourful!

I figure I should take an up-to-date photo of our lovely front garden while it's looking relatively green, before the Stage 2 water restrictions kick in next week.
