Welcome! ...........I hope you enjoy wandering through my tropical garden in North Queensland Australia, and that it brings you peace, love and joy. Even though my garden is tiny I try to employ permaculture priciples and grow as much of our own food as we can.

I am so grateful for the few trees that I have in my small garden. The lychee tree, now that it has been pruned way back is not providing the shade and shelter that it used to for the many brids that visit our garden. On Saturday morning as I sat enjoying my breakfast out in the garden I noticed about 25 birds fly into the weeping tea tree. I just sat and enjoyed their chatter - clearly they found something to nibble on - or else they were vandals as there were lots of snipped off branches being flung to the ground. I ran to get the camera, and they flew away - never to return... This is where they were though :)
Behind the fence are lots of big trees in my neighbours garden, so I am not tree less at all! I like the way my garden seems bigger because of this. Even though the big shady tree has been vastly reduced down there are plenty of other trees around. No room to plant another one for arbour day though, so I just enjoyed the trees I had. This little area is certainly enjoying more sunshine.
I love these heart shaped caladium leaves back and
This purple salvia has lain dormant for about two years, just waiting for some sunshine I guess...
The rex begonia is really strutting its beautiful flowers. Funny I always thought they preferred shade!
Yup I would say this is one section that is not missing those big shady branches.
What did you do this arbour day - plant a tree or just enjoy the ones you have already?
