I want to take you for a stroll through the Harmony Gardon of my friend Lee here in Upper Gully. It seems timely. My long-time blogging friend from San Diego, California, Woofnanny has left a comment over at Oz Tucker. She is about to start her first garden! Her very first! Isn't that exciting? You can see my comments in reply.
Lee is a believer in permaculture as am I.
But Lee is a qualified permaculture designer - whereas my knowledge is picked up from Permaculture 1 and 2, hearing Bill Mollison speak in the long, long ago, and visiting various websites - not least of which is David Holmgren's.
Lee's garden is on a suburban block not far off the highway as you travel up into the Dandeong Ranges.She has a large backyard - a few times bigger than mine. Her front and backyards are intensively planted - and even her footpath has a garden.
She is generous in showing her garden to the public and has raised a lot of money for charity.
Ran into her the other day taking some plants home to put in the boot!
Lee has two laundry tubs (short that sit in a cabinet in the laundry) full of worms!

So Woofnanny - I hope you have as much fun as Lee and I do, each of us with ours. In a garden there is always change and always something to be done and something to be discovered.
