    I like them and goannas the more I have the less food and lodgings for the others.I was just surprised how easily something that big disappeared.I lost a brown snake in very shortly mown lawn once too.They are so quick and must flatten out of something.

    I was thinking of getting midyim cuttings in spring.
    callie I get out in the garden every single day 2hrs today but mine is still a mess, I pulled out some weedy grasses and picked up a broc box and there was a huge centipede hiding there it tried to got down a crack in the ground but was too big it went under another so that was the end of weeding there for today.
    Saturday we went to Kingaroy darling cheap hubby was going to go to the chinese resturant and buy us a special meal for our anniversary………well being the weekend they don’t have the lunch time special, so went shopping and bought me a vacuum cleaner ….. would have preferred a load of horse manure.
    Had a lovely day yesterday looking around a permie garden plants hidden under things and got to come home with some cuttings mugwort and buddleia I’ve lost all of mine in the past 5 years what didn’t die in the floods ended up getting blown and hailed to bits.

    Just collected massive bunches of herbs and hung them around the house to dry.
    Greek oregano,regular oregano,Turkish thyme,Lemon thyme,sage and marjoram.
    I hang them near the doors and windows off the curtain rails to perfume the house keep out the flys and get a regular dry wind.The smaller leafed ones are in mesh fruit bags I bought for fruit flys,they work well,I did chillies in them too.

    another 3hrs of chop and drop I also managed to plant a few things native violets and borage.
    I’ve also potted on some more stuff cuttings of rosemary and lavender, still have to do cuttings of clove pinks and lemon balm.
    I hope to get to the Wondai Garden Expo tomorrow… I want to get some fruit trees.

    Also fixed the dishwasher so very pleased with myself.

    Liora clove pinks are a Dianthus the one I have is a semi double and the prettiest pink has a beautiful perfume and I’ve been growing this one for over 40 yrs.
    callie you OK?? the weather has been good to be outside I wanted to do a bit more in the garden today.
    I did a little more potting on of rosemary cuttings and planted a canary creeper nasturtium before we went to the garden expo I must have been a little sick as I didn’t buy any plants but was given some sheep sorrel by a friend there.
    I’m now so tired I want to go to bed
