Lovely shots, and great to see some pictures of the actual gardener. :D

One of the slightly frustating things about chatting on the net is not being able to put a face to the names. Apart from the general interest, I find it makes it much easier to remember who is who.

Really enjoying all your photos. I lived for a while in Brisbane and it's great to be reminded of what splendid shows some of the more industrious Queensland gardeners can achieve. :)

Waldon, love your photos & especially the different coloured foliage plants...hmmm for some warmth!!!

Thanks everyone, I can hardly wait for those day lillies in front of me in photo 1 to bloom this year. I'll be taking photos of those again.

Looks great Wal!

Very lush and tropical. All you need now is the hammock and a daiquiri-perfect!

Chris - we had a thread a while back "what do you look like?" where some posted photos of themselves:

We do, but because we're not paying connection fees any more, it works out cheaper for us than dial-up did. And we have the advantage of not having the phone line tied up any more.

We've found it quite interesting that a number of people who used to winge that they could never get us because the phone was always engaged, still don't ring all that often! :lol:

One more entry, because I love this pic. I took it this morning, showing winter in bayside blue sky Brisbane, with murraya, calistemon, grevillea and palm in natural syncopation. All except the triangle palm are native to OZ.
