Morning light floods the kitchen. The sky opens early revealing a mist over the valley. It's been very dry here in the west of Ireland, so morning mist adds a little dew to the plants and is very w...

So as our mid-Summer month, January, draws to a close, I thought I'd share what's been going on in my garden here in the dry tropics of north Queensland.

Summertime in the tropics means loads of Crepe Myrtle blooms.  They add so much colour to the garden.

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!
