I know that I have a habit of getting very close to flowers and bugs and other tiny things of great interest, but I am going to take a step back for those who want to get the big picture.
Secondly, I have finally started the arduous task of clearing the grass from the no man's land between our driveway and the next door neighbour's driveway. First I planted a Desert Willow, and then a couple of weeks later, after the rains abated, I started to dig more grass out, and I have now also planted a Rock Rose that had seeded itself from the back, and a cactus. Fingers crossed that they all survive, and that I continue to have the energy to dig, and that at some point it starts to look somewhat attractive. Of course the good thing about a total wasteland, is that it is hard to make it look worse.
So there you have it. Something for everyone.
