Pokie, from what I can tell, all you seem to have done was copy the url from the top of the page rather than the IMG link from under the pic?

Love the garden - you've done well! :D

Thanks everyone! That used to be all couch grass so I had to sift all the soil when Dad and I dug it up. Yes, we dug it in Summer to. :( BIG mistake!

Thankyou Spider Lily! :D

Might post a few more pics of other gardenbeds. That is about one tenth of my BACK yard so I have plenty more...

Thanks Luzy,

The bright yellow flower is a Coreopsis cultivar. Cant remember which though. Flowers from October to December.

Thanks Pokie - I'm really happy to know that as I've got two Rising Suns (I think they're the ones) coming along just fine. :D
