Is that a wee leprechaun I see?

    • It is upside down – hahaha – Australia broke all heat records this summer and plants can burn in the heat of the day – we are in the subtropics and our autumn is probably like your summer – hahaha – a great time to plant veges (lots of sun and not much rain – we have bore water/ground water freely available) – in fact you can plant any time of year around here (though some times are better for some particular plants).

    • Thanks Ben :) Bamboo is wonderful and it does make some special music and magic – like the bamboo shoots are talking to each other. Nothing is eating my veges so far – maybe all the hares have drowned in the floods – there are no kangaroos here and I haven’t seen any possums – in Brisbane my vege patch would have been demolished by possums, but not around here – we will see and if there are problems I will get some netting ;) fingers crossed

    • Thanks Charles – not sure where all the bunnies have gone, but nothing is bothering my crop at the moment – maybe they were all flooded out of their warrens and have gone elsewhere – I haven’t seen the bandicoot around either – maybe there is just a lot of food elsewhere (that is not so close to a house) that they are hanging around.

  1. Oh, it is such beautiful country, and the superb pics really are transportive! gorgeous rainbow, the veggie garden, the land reaching out – it’s a piece of paradise! And Happy Happiness Day too! x

    • haha – mine might yet turn out just like yours – wish it would just not rain for a month or so – veggie patches always start out with so much promise, until a miriad of problems come along to give us a headache and a tendency to avoid said crop ;)
