When all else fails, you can definitely count on Australian native plants. As soon as the cooler weather arrived, everything in our garden slowed down. Except for the natives, as there are a lot of species that withstand the most harsh temperature. We love its diversity, variety, colours and textures. They are easy to grow, low-maintenance, hardy, vigorous and best of all prolific.
Thank you friends for your visit and leaving your kind and sweet messages. I am counting the weeks when the cooler weather passes and I can get back to more posting action. This weather is truly turning me into a couch potato.
