I love the smell of Lantana. I also love the flowers. In Australia it’s widely regarded as a nasty invasive weed. No wonder. Mine has just exploded with growth. It’s huge. I have only one plant and it hasn’t spread to anywhere nearby. I Prune it savagely to keep it under control. It’s well away from livestock. Apparently its poisonous. How can something so beautiful, have so many negative aspects?

Terrick Terrick

Terrick Terrick National Park is nearby. Terrick Terrick is said to be an aboriginal word for two sisters, referring to “two rises in the Mount Terrick ranges”. It’s rather beautiful, well worth having a closer look.

Back in Lock Down.

My state is in Lock Down again. Here’s what I did the house last time, planted some sunnies.


I used to have a row of very overgrown agapanthus out the front of my house. They came out, (with an excavator) and I grew some sunflowers.


The sunflowers grew very well, taller than I had envisaged.
