about this blog



I started this blog in 2008. It started mainly as a way of tracking the evolution of my dry garden, and that led to an interest in photography and in the creatures that live in the garden. It's still about the garden and wildlife, but now my passion is thinking about how we humans can learn to co-exist with wild animals and plants, especially in urban areas.

smoke bush rules the world




Press release!

Deborah from Kilbourne Grove and I have just published a post together, featuring our communications about our common love of smoke bush.

Collaborating on a post has been fun, and especially wonderful because we live on opposite sides of the world.

Deborah's blog, Green Theatre, is always a great read, so I hope people who haven't caught the post, Holy Smoke , will check it out.

  6. I like this smoke bush. Their smoke bronze colour leaves are so captivating. For me it is an unusual colour. The closest I have is my bronze colour kalanchoe :-D

  9. Hi guys, thanks for the comments, it was fun collaborating and fun sharing the appreciation of this incredibly popular bush.
    Yes Joanne, I agree, we garden bloggers are a lovely group of people.
    Joy, We have a lot of similar plants I think. A while back I posted about mimulus as a guest in Pomona's blog tulips in the woods. Mimulus is a wildflower from California and were people most intrigued it was in my Australian garden.
    Grace, honoured to share the pod with you.
    sue, where are you located?
    cheers, catmint
