Another dry winter finished

My little Kalanchoe Barharensis making friends with the birds nest fern
Well we are just coming off the back of another dry winter for the farmers, with well below average rainfall, meaning a scant lot of work for us.  Hopefully all the hard yakka I put into my garden last autumn will pay off - lots of composting & mulching.
I have been quite busy getting my heavy rigid truck licence too, was quite proud of myself to pass first time. Tomorrow Im off to drive the truck & load the chief's plane, my first time on my own!
And also putting our house on the market for round 2 of  punishing home opens ( yuk) again!

 Chrysocephalum Apiculatum sunburst
This little native everlasting is so tough, doesnt need much water & flowers consistantly.
Ptilotus joey
love this native, this is its second year, they really only look good for the first season, should be treated as an annual.

& of course good old aeonium schwartzkop.


  1. A big congratulations on getting the truck licence. Well done!!! Your garden looks lovely, very different from mine. We have had loads of rain over the winter and it is a struggle to keep up with the lawns and weeds. Finding my vegie garden today. Good luck with round 2 of selling your house. x

  2. Thanks Jackie, I have spent the last two days driving the our work truck & now need to spend the next two recovering, all your rainfall sounds lovely, hopefully we will have better falls next year.
