We are taking the easy option, plane to Alice Springs, train from there to Darwin and then plane to Cairns.  Himself didn't want to do Sydney so there was my bargining. Point.

Hi, we reached Port Fairy, Vic this evening.  OH wants to see Darwin so it's a trade off.  The rain is currently hammering on the camper van roof, I wanted hot and sunny not rain.

Hi Pat, finally made it to Oz.  You have never mentioned the fabulous road verges out here.  Most of the plants I so carefully grow are just growing like weeds.  Agapanthus, Cannas,Evening primrose, Nerines,Morning Glory etc. It's absolutely fabulous. I'm really looking forward to Darwin.  But, we have still only seen dead kangaroos on the roadside

Do I Need A Boundary Fence?

Normally if it's your fence the posts can be seen from your garden and the smooth uninterrupted fence would show in the neighbours garden.  That is the convention that has been used for years but is/was does not always adhered to.

I agree with pansyface, put in wire & post line.  Should you sell the property it makes it clear to the new owners where their land ends.  Very few deeds show the exact boundary and solicitors can get very upset about this.

It had to be removed from the pond because the Carp and Koi were shredding it and pulling it out of it's pot.  I trying to grow it so that it can stand up for itself.  I personally would get rid of the fish but they belong to OH and he assures me are worth mega bucks.

I have a small water lily in a tub that I think I need to move so that the water doesn't freeze.  Do water lilies have to be kept submerged or can they just be kept in a tray of water so that they don't dry out?  All my other water lilies are just left in the pond but that is a far greater volume of water so will not be as cold.

I have 3 Garden Wonder tubers that have looked like this for the past 3 years.  They have continued to grow well so it may not be a disease.  If you are concerned store them on their own over winter and see if they grow next spring.
