okay i admit the 15ft iron emu is a bit tricky, but the mix of natives to create a drought proof colourful garden(this garden gets no water and is in a rainfall area <400mm per annum) really works.

I LOVE the emu, Jack! Looks fantastic, as does the whole area. Have you planted all that since you moved?

I especially like the first photo! Lots of different greens, silver and some purple and white. They are growing so well considering no water and the lack of rainfall!
