Flower of the Month - May 2007

Although the Camellias (pink sasanqua pictured, this is the one I am trying to contort into a ball-on-a-stick type of topiary) and the roses are doing OK in May......
the Orange Chinese Lantern bush is doing really well, considering the chilly mornings.....
better even than the Red Chinese Lantern out the front and a thousand times better than the poor old yellow Chinese Lantern under the deck that has now basically become rabbit food (definately not pictured).

Pet of the Month - May 2007

Previously known as Muffin, she now likes to be called Henny Penny. She is currently my favourite bird. Regularly produces her daily egg even on the chilliest of mornings. She happily struts the back garden every day, especially since "He Who Shall Not Be Named", has now left for a better place. She also gives the local white rabbits a run for their money.

A Home Among the Gum Trees

Home Among The Gum Trees
I've been around the world
a coupleof times
or maybe more
I've seen the sights, I've had delights
On every foreign shore
But when my friends all ask me the place
that I adore I tell them right away
Give me a home among the gum trees
With lots of plum trees
A sheep or two, a kangaroo
A clothes-line out the back
Verandah out the front
And an old rocking chair
You can see me in the kitchen
Cookin' up a roast
Or Vegemite on toast
Just you and me, a cup of tea
Later on we'll settle down
And mull up on the porch
And watch the possums play
Some people like their houses
With fences all around
Others live in mansions
And some beneath the ground
But me, I like the bush, you know
With rabbits running 'round
And a pumpkin vine out the back
(Chorus Twice)
