Weeds, Workshops and Rain

 Last Saturday our Simple Living Toowoomba group held a workshop titled 'Identifying Weeds' which was presented by Tim Nash a local soil scientist and secretary of Permaculture Toowoomba.

You can never have too many plants!

 During winter we had one really heavy frost which damaged a lot of our bromeliads growing under the pecan nut tree. Unfortunately they had no protection as the leaves had all fallen off but normally we don't have any issues at all with frost. Seeing as the Bromeliad and Succulent Show was on at the weekend we headed there to buy some new broms to replace those we had lost although most of them will eventually recover by the looks of them. As I always seem to lose the labels on plants I will write the names down now for future reference when that happens.

More Carnival Flowers

We have been having some very warm days here so last Friday a friend and I took a look at Laurel Bank Park before the weekend crowds arrived in town. The 2021 Carnival of Flowers theme in the park is 'I See a Dinosaur'.

A Hive of Activity

 As anyone who has been reading my blog for a while would know, September is the month when our city becomes a hive of activity as thousands of tourists descend on the area to view the spectacular parks and gardens that come into bloom at the beginning of Spring.

More soapy experiments

 I have been really slack with blogging lately for some reason. However, I really need to do a post about the last two batches of soap I made as I like to record what recipe I used in case it turns out to be a particularly nice soap.
