The Project Begins........

The front of the house. Renovations are ongoing inside with a blank slate for the yard except for some backyard fruit trees and the stunning multi-coloured bougainvillea to the right of picture.
The house Bougainvillea adorning a bottle of 2004 Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame, one of the best Champagnes I've tasted.
The before picture of the backyard. To the right a large mature Golden Apple tree and left a Mammy Apple.
8 Yards of compost delivered just before the fencing goes up. An attempt to amend the extremely heavy clay "soil" roughly 2 feet above solid limestone. A challenge.
The first delivery of very valuable mature palms for free!! via the clients old school friend that had to remove them from a project site being developed.
Me admiring the second delivery of palms, 10 in all !!!! A true blessing.

Nice to have friends with free palms, Dave! Tricky to get them in?
