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.

acknowledging the original owners of the land
In Brunswick, an inner northern suburb of Melbourne, there is a small park. At first sight it looks like any other park. It has grassy spaces, a few trees, seats, a drinking fountain and play equipment for children. What makes this park special is this ... in one inconspicuous corner of the park is an indigenous garden.
In this garden there is rock art to wonder at and enjoy.
There are Australian native plants like this Lomandra and there are old trees with interesting bark.
A fun way to introduce the youngest generation to indigenous culture.
