Hi, and thanks for thinking of me. i have been incredibly busy work wise and gardening. i have replanted a whole garden bed in the front of the house as we were struck by lightening mid december 2009 and the Bangalow Palms, the Coastal Banksia and a Bouganvillea that were all very old but still glorious all died !! so we were devastated. so now i have almost started from scratch and continuing with the Asian Tropical Theme with a variety of Gingers including Helaconias, a couple of Frangipani, Fox Tail Palms, Dwarf Palms,Tibouchina, Crotons and Cordyline, Gardenia and a few other plants in between. i now have to be patient which is the hard part. <br/>we have had a watering system put in and it so good. the garden looks so much lusher and the time it saves allows me more time to plant, pot and design. so all good here. <br/> <br/>How about you ? what have you been up to ?
