Frosty gorgeous autumn day at Country Lodge Kinloch


All done ๐Ÿ˜Š mini break and then on to the bedrooms.


Another big day of decorating, ceiling finished - all those beams! Well done Stephen - finished all the first coat of paint and did a second coat on the wood around the bottom. Day off tomorrow, it's a cricket watching day - go the black caps!


Goodbye too much dark wood and mustard paint! Our pioneer cottage is getting a freshen up. First coat of paint nearly completed.


Happy New Year - here's hoping you all have a great 2017 - safe travels wherever you may be ๐ŸŒ


What do you do with left over macrocarpa logs? Do you make a garden sculpture, or do you make moveable seats or tables for the pรฉtanque pitch .... or perhaps all three!


Rhododendrons in bloom


Garden art - one still life and one living!๐Ÿ˜†. Plus the clematis in bloom looking pretty, and that living garden art managed to photo bomb that picture too.


Definite signs of spring at Country Lodge Kinloch - so pretty


First signs of Spring and then Mother Nature decides it's winter time again - so pretty thoughโ„๏ธโ„๏ธโ„๏ธ


Beautiful day here at country lodge Kinloch - gardening with an audience๐Ÿ˜„


Autumn has well and truly arrived in Taupo, and here at Country Lodge Kinloch our deciduous trees are looking stunning.


It's has taken us one year from inception to completion but finally the pottager garden is finished, fully fenced to keep out the rabbits and any wandering sheep and producing a healthy supply of lovely fresh vegetables along with a few beautiful flowers.


The roof is on and I'm moving in! Even started painting the exterior today - but Mabel's supervision is starting to slip!


On to the finishing touches, but sadly Mother Nature intervened and the roof has been delayed - hoping for Friday now. Ready and waiting to move in.......
