Floral Friday Challenge.


Thursday last week we visited

Country Dahlias,

Country Dahlias is only about a

forty minute drive from Geelong.

With around 2,500 species to view

we could have spent nearly all day

wandering around.

 Over the next few weeks I will post some more of these plants…

some of which were really eye-catching.

Facebook page.

I have heard it said that the Amazon Basin

is the lungs of the World.So, in 2001, with some health problems,

the completion of my teaching degree,

I decided to take up the offer to

lease part of our farm for growing Blue Gums.

With 89,000 trees planted I felt

I was helping the world breathe.


 Harvest time came around all too quickly.

It wasn’t long before they began to coppice

into nice little bushes again.

A couple of years alter one would not know

that this was not the first crop on the paddock.

And so the cycle commences again.
