A bit of smartening up going on around here. It was long overdue. At my office, I've just had both the front and side steps painted, and now embellished them with some concrete balls I bought locally off Trademe. What do you think? The steps and columns are gorgeous, symmetrical and very much the feature of this funny little building. Now they look a little bit more dressed up with the balls. Best thing about the balls - this will not be their final resting place - oh no! They can be moved around and repositioned at whim. Funnily enough, the only thing I won't be doing with them is juggling.

The two photos above are 19 months apart. Shows how the garden has filled out. The Camellia hedges are starting to create structure now, and the Maples have really taken off. I always intended to paint the steps, and now I have. Had also thought about painting zebra stripes on the columns, too, but might just be a little bit too OTT for me!! Any ideas???
