They say the best time to plant anything new or move plants around is Spring time. Too bad no one told us when we decided to "clean up" my Mum's Garden in the middle of Winter!!

Every time my mum decides to leave Australia to visit family in Vietnam, my Brother Benny and I decide to do some sort of home project for her. The story normally goes like this:
Good news is that she likes the new garden. Bad news is she will need to replant a lot of them because we "accidentally" killed them during the numerous attempted relocations. Benny and I wanted to make her garden a little bit nicer but more importantly accessible. She turned the "BIG 6-0" this year and has found it slightly more difficult to garden. We thought it was vital she is able to keep gardening as she loves growing her own fruit, veggies and herbs. From the photos, you can see that the garden lacked paths before it and therefore made it dangerous for her or anyone else when accessing the garden.
I hope that by cleaning it up, adding the footpaths and some benches, the garden will be easy to access for many years to come! I'm looking forward to eating her food made from the produce she grows. Over the years, she has grown countless types of fruit, veggies or herbs in the garden including lemons, bananas, mandarins, papaya, chillis, basil, dragonfruit, lemongrass, mint, (don't know the name in English but in Vietnamese it's translated to "need water") and many others that I don't know the names of either!
BTW Lassie loves the garden too but he has restricted visiting rights since he is a fellow plant destroyer! Hope you like the finished product!!!
Please note Benny and I are not professionals haha...

Hen's (or Bachelorette) Parties can be a real drama to plan! There's so many expectations, from the bride, the bridesmaids, friends, long lost cousins. You might face problems with payments, decision-making, opinionated (or not so opinionated) individuals... but all is not lost!
