Photos from your garden

Only a few acres of our 40 acre garden. I think we need a couple of cows/horses to keep the grass down.

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

at the house sit in Wooroloo they have about 30 sheep ... they shed their fleece so don't need shearing ... the lambs are a joy to see ... just a thought ...

I think those sheep are Dorpers. I thought about getting a couple. Low maintenance in terms of being parasite resistant, feet don’t go manky in the mud, no shearing. Bred for Australian conditions.

Monstera deliciousa = swiss cheese plant, a member of the philodendron family. Delicious to eat.

We have so many fungi/mushrooms growing on the land I don’t know what’s edible and what isn’t

@TootsIt is a triple coloured double bougainvillea. Took a cutting from a campsite in central Qld. The parent is only bouble coloured, no green. Must be the different soil.

It's lovely Bob.  I was surprised to see bougainvillea here in Devonport - not as nice as yours though - also hibiscus does well here in a sheltered, sunny part of the garden.

Odd, innit? I cannot grow hibiscus in my garden...My nexties on either side have a couple each...And, our area is called The Hibiscus Coast...

If I raise a bed, then I can grow them; my soil is too acid (5 to 5.3 pH)

This isn't a photo of our garden but a few of the lemons I've just been picking from our tree.   Picked the huge one from the middle of the tree.  The big ones are always right inside.
