    These are the peas I’m growing right now they have more than the usual amout of tendrils, I bought the seed several years ago and now nobody has them listed.

    They are called “Lacy Lady”

    Hi Judi, Great to see another garden log happening. My Mum loves growing her Hippys to, you can get some nice varieties.

    Thanks for finally clearing up for me what the hell Triffads were, been wondering since someone (probably you) wrote about them a long time ago. :confused:

    Thats a great harvest of Beans and interesting Pea, never seen so many tendrils on one plant, freaky.

    Havent seen a Stick insect that big in years, great pic. :tup:

    Keep posting. :wave:

    It is a great feeling going into winter with a full dam, DH has been busy clearing the long grass from around it so he can the flat spot for the pump.

    We have a carob growing here and it is wider than it is high and it has been flowering for months and it is a hive of activity there are so many honey bees, native bees, flies, spiders and birds in it the noise is deafening.

    The weather here has been a bit odd for this time of year and things that should be bare have leaves on them or are showing signs of buds and some are really confused by having flowers like this plum.

    I just love to look at your photos. Thanks so much for sharing. So often I think we do not realise how fortunate we are with what we have. We become accustomed to our surroundings. Seeing it in photos is refreshing, IMO, So thank you. I feel a bit inspired to start a thread pf my own.

    We think Nature is so amazing and are so happy to have it all around us.

    I’m enjoying the thread Judles, thanks for all the pics. We have stick insects but they are a good bit smaller and slimmer than your pic.
