What's On Show This Weekend ... August 29-30, 2015.
Our wintertime is well and truly ended.  It's been one of the warmest winters I can recall for quite some time, and given that tropical winters are usually very, very mild anyway, you could be forgiven for thinking we hadn't had a winter at all.  Officially...

Well, old man Winter arrived in the tropics this past week.  He bought some seriously cold nights and early mornings, and some gorgeous sunrises.   Mid-week it was down to between 7 and 9 deg C  (44 - 48 F).  That is COLD for the tropics.  With very low hum...

I've been so very slack in posting on either of my blogs this year, and the year is already half over!!!  It's getting harder and harder for me to find the time to devote to blogging, so I think I'll just try and add a quick post on the weekends as a way of...

Part of the point of planting indigenous plants in the garden is to attract native birds. I used to think it was good to attract as many different species of birds as possible. Over the years I have observed quite a variety o...

+sue catmint   We are bemoaning the lack of a wet season here.  Everything is starting to dry out very, very quickly and our dry season has only just begun.  The garden is going to have a tough year.

There have been so many birds around our place lately. The long dry season means they're searching for any sources of nectar and water to drink, or little insects to feast on. I've been enjoying spotting the variety of birds popping by for a visit.

From the weekend .... Feb 28 / March 1, 2015.  End of Summer into the first days of our supposed Autumn, although it will feel summery for quite some time to come.

Story
Tagline
Known as Bush Bernie in garden blogging circles. I'm a teacher, wife, mother, and grandmother whose interest in gardening has been rekindled after many busy years filled with work and family. My garden is located in a dry tropics region of north Queensland and the climate and weather conditions here can be quite challenging! But I'm whole-heartedly enjoying getting out there and having a go!
