Come and take a wander around my dry tropics garden here in north-eastern Australia.

Green and gold ... it's Australia Day!
A collage of some of the green and gold plants in my garden .... just to celebrate Australia Day! Aussie, Aussie, Aussie ... oi, oi, oi!!
Of course you can spot the acacias and crotons ... but there's also Nephrolepis falcate forma, Galphimia Glauca, Schefflera arboricala, Allamanda cathartica, Bracteantha bracteata, Ming Aralia (Polyscias fruticosa), Caladium, Canna, Dracaena godseffiana, Ixora 'Sunshine Yellow', Osteospermum 'Tradewinds, Licuala ramsayi, Pyllanthus multiflora and Neomarica longifolia.
Now for something a little different .... here's a link to a great modern-day 'bush ballad' that gives a great perspective on how we feel about being Australian.
