What a day

Our Gardens Friends had a planting bee last Saturday which was fantastically successful - after having been postponed twice because of wet weather!  Our aim was to plant 1,000 lomandra plants during the morning in a new area of the Gardens - all done and more by smoko time.
The photos have loaded in the wrong order - too hard to change!

 In the middle of the morning, the birds arrived!
 A mixture of magpie geese and whistling ducks as well as other types of ducks
The team hard at the planting

This pair of black swans led the flotilla.
The weather was perfect and it was a joy to be out in the open air.


  1. Oh what a lovely day you had in such beautiful nature filled surroundings. Your rainforrest pics were fabulous, what a stunning place!

  2. What a wonderful day and in such lovely surroundings. Glad the planting got done - a pat on the back to all concerned. Great photos as usual.

  3. What a mammoth effort, well done to everyone for working so hard.

  4. That's a wonderful way to give back to the environment and to feel even more a part of the community. Lovely day.
