HOME & GARDEN PAGE
Our garden is essentially of three distinct zones. The first (1) is the house flower beds and the productive part of the garden. The second (2) is the short grass exotic plantings and the third (3) a longer grass area with mainly native plantings. This last third is the most favoured by native wildlife as they can hide in the long grass and use the short grass paths to move around the garden, and to graze. Regular wildlife visitors are wallabies, pademelons (small Tasmanian wallabies), echidnas (spiny anteaters) possume (ringtail, brushtail and a resident eastern pigmy possum), blue tongue lizards, skinks and an occasional tiger snake! Esmerelda the goat stopped me from treading on one recently by absolutely refusing to go where I was taking her. There are also, of course, lots of rabbits at times though their numbers come and go with snake season, and if we have stray cats visiting. We get quite frequent birds of prey too, which will contribute to the control of the rabbit population.
I will finish this page properly soon but for the moment will leave you with some photos to look at.
