Some native and exotic trees most of which grow on our property. Re Eucalypts (or gum trees) there are more than 900 known species and all except 12 are naturally endemic to Australia. Everywhere you look there are gum trees, they pop up in the garden in unexpected places and unless they're really in a difficult spot we tend to let them grow in situ. Here is a sample of those growing in our garden and surrounding area.

Various daisies growing in our garden
Osteospermum, the South African daisy is now available in a range of colours and forms and
we have several growing in different parts of the garden. They are a riot of colour on
and off during the year. Today Dick turns 80, a wonderful day spent with our visiting son and his friends.
