We have acquired three 5000 litres water tanks for the Nursery and today we connected those tanks in preparation for the addition of pump and solar power.
Our indigenous Native Raspberries are flowering and fruiting at the moment, and that means fresh raspberries for breakfast.
Which gave us an idea for a cool drink on these very hot days.
One of the main plants we use in erosion control and creek management is Lomandras – the Australian mat rush. Propagating these form our own seed is our next project.
It’s been some time now since we made the Callistemon path to the south of the driveway and it was badly in need of some maintenance.
We still have some remaining ‘exotic’ trees on the property that we would like to remove. Though beautiful and successful in their own right, none of them belong here and carry the risk of becoming a pest.

Today our new shipping container office arrived.
We only bought it 2 days ago, but as we bought it at auction we had to ‘take possession’ and move it as soon as possible.
Our Yellow Box(Eucalyptus melliodora) are flowering and it’s snowing on the big deck.
We still have some non-native tree on the property, but are slowly removing them all.
Among those are the big Jacaranda and the similar sized Poinciana.
Both these need a chop back as they are very shady.
In the terraces at the front of the house is a number of larger and mature Callistemon(Bottle Brush) trees.
One of the larger ones is near the North East corner of the house. Unfortunately this tree is starting to cast shadow on our solar panels, so it is going to need a big chop!
