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.

  1. Beautiful. It will be months (winter here in the northern United States - and our north is our colder part) before I can stand outside and enjoy a view like this. Thank you for sharing. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. Hi Rn, great to hear from a fellow Melbournian. This heat does seem to make the sky quite magical.

  4. Melbourne is still elusive for me to reach, but at least i've reached as far as Canberra from Sydney. And last year i was able to see the Gold Coast and Brisbane. I hope before my life ends i can also reach there. Thanks for visiting my post. Happy New Year.

  5. That is so beautiful and calming. I'm dreaming of milder weather while we are in the depths of an Arctic blast here. Your pier photo at the beginning is so perfectly composed!

    1. I can imagine your beach getting wild and windy, unlike our bay which is relatively sheltered.

    1. hi Donna, yes, it is one of my favourite places. One of the disadvantages of my garden is you can't see the sky very well because of tall trees and houses so I have to go somewhere else to watch the sunset.
