Not enough hours in the day

Not enough days in a week
and not enough weeks in a year to get every thing done.
Fresh flowers available from my road side stall.

Awesome value at $5 per bunch

 There are still a few flowers left out in the paddock.
Zinnias are reaching the end of their run.
Such great summer flowers.
 The dahlias are grateful that the heat has gone.
They are flowering nicely.

My cosmos, orange coloured flowers, are amazing. 
The plants would be 8ft tall
I wonder if they come in different colours?
Orange works well with red and purple zinnias.
 In other news, the first wall has evolved. 
Using left over steel and some recycled windows. 
Now for some cladding.
I have to relocate the water tank and create a paved path, with drainage.
Which gets back to the title of this post,
There are just not enough hours in the day!

Floor action

I am a bit excited.
The floor is being laid.
Small steps forward on a big job.
Now I can start dreaming of walls. 

 This rain dumped 8 ml's in 8 minutes.
What a down pour.
The Lycoris look good, 
some people refer to them as Yellow Nerines.
There are many Salvias  flowering at the moment,
Phyllis Fancy

 Very pretty with the purple stem and blush on the caylix
I have it growing next to a Salvia called Ripe Raspberry.
They are such good performers, hardy and heaps of colour.

The Basil is still going well, I will have to freeze some for 
winter flavour.
Freezing keeps better flavour than drying.
Fairy rain today, I don't think I will get wet weeding.
Best I get out there and get on with it!
