Working Bee June 15 – native Australian garden

Another beautiful and productive day in the native Australian garden in the south-west corner. There was weeding and much needed mulching, a visit from a friendly park neighbour, a discovery of an "ancient" Aussie artifact (surprisingly unopened!).  And the Kangaroo Paw is coming back to life after our last visit.
