Well it's been a while

Living on a relaxed laid back island is all very well if your lifestyle is also relaxed and laid back.

Lately mine has been anything but.
My job plus the commute to and from work seems to have become more demanding this year. I love my job, but there are many times I wish I could stay home and walk along the beach with Missy (and John) instead of setting off in the car each morning.
I'm still glad we moved to Bribie island but I have much less free time than I used to.

The garden is powering on without any help from me.
The pink pompom hibiscus keep flowering and are thickening up well. They'll soon form a hedge.
Along the back fence the palms and the native hibiscus have reached fence height. The cannas continue to flower, but with Winter coming on they will die back soon.
The heliconias are also growing well and the crepe myrtle. 
We'll soon have a mini tropical retreat.
A lovely place to sit and enjoy the garden....
Hope to have time to do that soon.
