Those are beautiful closeup photos.

Wallace and Ella - thank you; I just love nature!

A couple of days of solid rain and now everything is going gangbusters. Just to prove I do have some non Aussie plants, first one below is a 'new world iris'. Then a Lechenaultia from West Australia and a Grevillea Molly.

WOW! 12 months no rain? Is that unusual for your area?

Pat - yes it is unusual for this area and even much of the state. Recently the whole state of New South Wales (809,000 square kilometres/312,000 square miles/8 million people) was declared in drought. Luckily in the last week or so many of us have had drenching rain and now I have full tanks again (8,000 litres) to help water my garden. I think we are all aware of climate change.

The weather and climate change are always topics of conversation; despite some significant rain in places our large state of New South Wales is still some 90% in drought. We are very lucky here and had some good rain a few weeks back. But we also had with that rain some severe storms, and with trees coming down and damaging others on the way, I lost 40% of my Aussie native bush garden. So I have rebuilt it and already after 6 weeks the new growth is excellent.

Here are a few snaps - one of my new grevilleas a pink G. Caloundra Gem, a revitalised G Lollypops which was just a 2 metre stick after the storms and a rescued rose from the front of the house, now in a pot.
