Here is the only dill plant that made it but we have harvested so much dill from it it is uncanny!      Version 2

Below is the Macadamia blooming and there are lots and lots of insects flying around fertilising it.Macadamia flowers On the other hand the Guava is faring miserably. Something that we cannot see is eating all the leaves.

Early spring garden

In the garden right now.

Kumquat buds and flowers  Here is a yellow citrus flower. At least we think so but this needs further investigation because nothing on the internet says there is such a thing.

dsc00740 Here is one of the terrible Lantanas. It is a pink one. Soon it will be cut to a nice shape.dsc00738  This one we have no idea what it is but it is very cute. Possibly Scarlet pimpernel (Anagallis arvensis)dsc00737 Here is a Mulberry almost ripe!dsc00735 Here is a Banksia cone. The small bumps have seeds inside.dsc00727 Here is a White Paper Daisy / Rhodanthe floribunda. We have relocated these from the bush to the cleared space by the entrance.dsc00728 Here are many yellow flowers. They are all over right now. Senecio Lautus ssp dissectifolius / Variable Groundsel.

Up close below:


The Wisteria (Blåregn) that grows in the Citrus Grove and we are trying to tame it.
Here is a creeping vine. We do not know what it is yet. Maybe a Jasmin of some kind, possibly Jasminum Polyanthum 

Citrus buds and flowers And lastly the citrus flowers and buds. They smell lovely but do not smell citrus at all.

Working on the dunny again

Lazy morning by the fire.

Did September cleaning and vacuuming.

After lunch we started working on the vinyl flooring in the dunny-to-be. Cut the corners and decided to glue half of it tomorrow. Half so we can move the dunny from the verandah. And only half because we have to make a drain for the shower and sink before glueing the rest. Looking forward to this.

After that we raked the garden behind the house which was full of leaves again.

Still have the sliver and the Pecan square to rake and remove branches and twigs.

But things are looking up, really. The beans and radishes are sprouting and some other things which we are not sure if it´s weeds or veg´s.

Sometimes days are like that

Woke up and from the verandah saw one of the big Wallabies licking a very red spot on his stomach. It was sitting down on it´s tail which was sticking out front sort of instead of backwards as usual. Jen spoke to it and it did not jump away. The two big ones are a bit shy otherwise. Went in and had brekkie. Later it lied down in it´s side. Now we got nervous it was sick and maybe would die. We talked to it a couple of times and it looked at us but did not jump away. In the evening it got up and jumped away and ate some. I hope it´s back to business. We planned our day´s work: the dunny and raking the back yard but then our plans got thwarted because it stunk in the storage. The cans with beans we had conserved had yeasted and run over and gotten mouldy and stunk prawn and fish. One of the bottles of lemon juice had leaked a lot and mould loved it. So instead of following our plan we picked the innards of the old fridge apart and cleaned them and sprayed mould stuff on. Poured out our beans on the compost and did not do much else. Sometimes days are like that.
