This Time Last Year – July 2006

This time last year the weather wasn’t much different than what it is now – wet, cold, stormy and fairly depressing. The garden was in its dormancy period and optimism had flown north for the winter.

Yet there were still some highlights from my garden as well as posts that were included that are worth mentioning again. So here’s a quick recap of July 2006.

    • I took my children camping overnight and fell in love with some gorgeous Acacia dealbata
    • We spent a day with the family in Perth’s Kings Park Botanic Gardens. These gardens are absolutely stunning with their efforts to beautify the landscape with native Australian species. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Additionally, we participates in various other affiliate programs, and we sometimes get a commission through purchases made through our links.
