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!

What's On Show This Weekend ... October 3-4, 2015 ... mid-Spring.

This year's dry season has been particularly harsh at my place.  Thankfully they're still a few blooms around to bring in the birds, and they've enjoyed the pond.

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...

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.

What's On Show This Weekend ... July 18-19, 2015.
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...

The last week of the school holidays is over now, and work starts once more tomorrow.  It's amazing how quickly the time flies when you don't have to set the alarm for an early morning! The weather has been simply glorious.  Whilst we call this time of the ...
