Enrico. it is amazing how well your garden has survived considering the extremes it has suffered...drought, smoke, heat from bushfire, wind..etc... you've done well.
Beautiful plants.. the first photo is my favourite..beautiful flowers, clouds, sky and greenery... what more could one ask.... (Y) (Y)
