The season has been strange, many plants are hanging on to their flowers for months instead of weeks and others are flowering right out of season.
I suspect the El Nino has something to do with this. We are not getting our usual rain, but thankfully neither are we getting the super cell storms of Southern Queensland. I think the ants are giving me a message though, the sugar is definitely back in a screw top jar instead of its open bowl, and we are inundated in our bathroom. We had black cockatoos a week ago, but they have vanished this week - they are always supposed to be a sign of rain coming. Bush lore is fascinating.

I also need to perforate 900 raffle tickets - after Bill has produced them - for our annual Christmas in the Gardens event at the Botanic Gardens in just over two weeks!
