    Your wisteria is obviously 35km geographically closer to the equator than ours…… ours has started, but def not in full bloom yet.

    Sometimes we get a lot of run off in our back yard. Approximately every 7 years. Looking forward to next year. Back in April '15...

    Yes, I could easily shoot him, if I could. Wish they didn't migrate South.

    Cleaned the gutters and stormwater drains on the carport yesterday….down pipes discharge into two sumps, then onto an absorption trench in the back yard.
    When I cleaned out the top sump I found a big frog happily sitting at the bottom, in the water. I thought he/she might have been trapped by the grate, so carefully placed him/her on the ground nearby….bushy, cool and damp.
    Left the grate askew just in case it really wanted to be in the sump and sure enough, this morning when I went out to check, a little froggy face was peeping up out of the water….nice!
    We call them “tennis frogs” ‘cause they sound like someone hitting a tennis ball …..there’s a tournament going on around here at the moment :D
    Cheers,
    Mark

    31 years ago, I cut this full height gum tree hanging over the building, back to just a stump, and it sat as a stump ever since.

    This year, it sprouted new growth! :eek:
