If you were paying careful attention to my last blog post (27th August) you would have noticed that I mentioned that we were about to go away on holidays.
Well, we certainly did and were away for just over 3 weeks before returning home on Sunday. It was a road trip though our home state of Queensland which you can read about on my other blog, Somewhere, Anywhere if you are interested.
There will be plenty of new content coming up soon but meanwhile, here are a couple of images that greeted us upon our return.
We had housesitters staying in our home so that the chickens and gardens would be maintained. Quite aside from the housesitters, the growing conditions must have been simply perfect. This is the haul I picked from the garden on Sunday afternoon.
In December last year we had some Himalayan Ash trees removed. These are classified as an environmental weed in south east Queensland – please refer to the link for details. Naturally, we were keen to revegetate the area as quickly as possibly and have planted a mixed selection of native shrubs and small trees.
It is barely 9 months since these were planted but this callistemon is already putting on a spectacular spring show.
