One of Queensland's tropical glories is proving Sydney's better than average rainfall this summer. It's the best flowering of Golden Penda (Xanthostemon chrysanthus) I've noticed here where its limits are tested and seasonal conditions can make a real difference. The acid-gold flowers are another of our myrtles that are all stamens and sweet nectar. Show-stopping but messy if there's a target like a parked car below.

When growing my vegetables I always plant rows of garlic and basil around them to help prevent insects attacking the plants.
