Shannon's first parking attempt at Bunnings.


As soon as the floods hit Brisbane and Toowoomba we knew that veges would be at a premium price within a few weeks. We planted some lettuces and they are looking beautiful like this one.


Whenever I have a bit of ginger that gets a bit old and wrinkly, I plant it on my front verandah and in a couple of months we have fresh juicy ginger growing.


I lost the battle to save my bok choy to these caterpillars yesterday despite me going out morning and night to pick them off. Tried my chilli/garlic spray against them ... they are tough. They don't survive my gumboot though!

Rather large visiting cicada. Why do they want to stay inside?


Here was my Australia Day breakfast :(


My youngest daughter, Shannon takes pride in covering all of her school books herself. She's in Year 12 now and still not sick of doing it. This year she covered her books with original art she created herself.
