So I haven't told you that it is V's 21st coming up so there is a massive push to try and get the house and garden sorted for the (fingers crossed) outdoor movies. V's mum and 2 sisters arrive tomorrow from South Africa and his gran from the UK next week so the house will be so packed that I might have to sleep in the garden? It might not be such a bad thing if only I could sleep walk and fill the green waste bin with all the weeds and clippings.
Anyhow I don't have many photos to post of my garden so I thought I might add a few I took last August in Cairns Botanical Gardens. They were quite beautifully laid out and had some excellent specimens. The top side was maintained with fabulous results (photos included). However as a result of Cyclone Yasi the rainforest walk had been very badly hit and not as interesting as I would have hoped. Perhaps another year on it might looking up? If you are in Cairns needed a break from all that it offers I recommend you pop into the Botanical gardens and have a wander. The coffee shop had really tasty things.
