VALLEY FLOWERS

hr

After we moved to Lobethal (in 1983) Peg worked at the Onkaparinga Woolen Mill,
however with a young family to look after the hours were inconvenient
so she decided she need a work from home job.
hr

From 1987 to 1999 Peg operated a business,

"VALLEY FLOWERS",

growing cut flowers and doing floristry work, at our Lobethal property.

Her floristry work, included wedding arrangements and displays as well as general floristry.

These are a few photos of her work

Our Garden Changes

We moved to Lobethal in 1983 and, over the years, there have been many changes to our garden.
Prior to 2000 the whole front yard was use to grow cut flowers, from 2000 to 2012 the front was gradually change into a regular garden.
Then after we subdivided the property the garden was completely made over again.

borers borers

We had a large gum tree in our garden die after a infestation of borers.


Its removal was carried out very professionally by
ADELIDE HILLS TREE
AND STUMP REMOVALS.


They also removed branches from other trees which were getting too close to our house.

Their work was completed with any damage to surrounding plants in the garden.
