I told my dad to smile and he said, "that's the best it's going to get." I love this man and I am so grateful that he is my father, for all he has done for me, and that I am with him now. He is a great example and he is such a strong person, even in the face of adversity. Happy Father's Day! I love you dad! #theman#familiesareforever#kangaroopaw
I know this looks like a giant mess but this is the sloped garden just beside my driveway.
The whole side is covered in weeds which I have sprayed but they don't seem to want to die so I ripped out a patch.
I didn't do a really thorough job because I'm concerned about erosion and realistically I don't think I'll win the war.
I did find a beautiful kangaroo paw so hopefully it doesn't get washed down the hill or get any of the fungal diseases that seem to be bloody hard to keep away.
Also popped some viola hederacea, a native Australian ground cover in to hope that over the next few weeks it starts to all take root and spread to help prevent erosion.
Also popped new pink ice proteas on either side of the driveway.
