    Great Love is hard to find so when you find it appreciate it.

      I certainly have great love of that song! Lindsey Buckingham at his best. Stevie Nicks was just an unnecessary addition on this track in my opinion..

    My new garden tools arrived today, so I have been doing some cutting back to make the place look less like a jungle. What fun. If only agapanthus leaves weren’t so sticky.

      Agapanthus – ugh! Nice flowers but boy do they spread and it’s difficult to remove all the roots when established. I have spent the last 20 years or so hacking out agapanthus plants and yet they still keep popping up. Not good when growing amongst natives. I hope yours are the non-propagating variety.

        No. But I spray them where they are not wanted. I’m sure that the disgusting stickiness is their revenge for having their leaves cut. If someone could synthesise whatever makes them grown so fast and put it into food crops, there would be no more hunger in the world. You trim the buggers and they’re as bad again before the tools have been cleaned and put away. I have taken to them with the old (really old) sickle and billhook that I bought at a garage sale. Old-fashioned weedeaters. They do a brilliant job and there’s something pleasing in the rythym of swinging one.

          You have the right approach. Cut the leaves and then spray them with strong roundup or similar. It took me a while to realise that just spraying the leaves doesn’t work.

            I don’t mind them as space fillers or along the fence to save mowing.

    Just went out to the fence to see if any eels were about. Only a little olive green aussie one. But 3 big splashes of bird poo hit the wai & I looked up to see Seamus Shag might be overnighting in one of his two favourite tree again. I spotted him down in the water this morning when I was throwing some soaked tiger-bread chunks down to the ducks. He’s an occasional visitor only.
