I live on an 11 acres bush block. We live 480 metres above sea level and so the garden has to cope with very dry Summers and occasional frost and snow in Winter. Our garden gets no watering except that which falls from the sky. It is well mulched. However, since the drought hit really hard, the wallabies and kangaroos have decided our garden is a very useful food source and water source (from the bird baths as the creek rarely runs these days). So we now have a major challenge about what to do with what was quite a lovely garden. We are watching what the wallabies leave alone and which plants survive the extremes of the weather. When I'm not scratching my head about what to do with the garden I find refuge and delight in the Keilor Plains Group members who are always sources of tremendous inspiration and knowledge, not to mention good fun!
