Autumn and winter activity

I found more caltrop growing in the neighbourhood in a spot I have been keeping an eye on (I found some there last year).  Out it came!

The autumn propagating season continued.  This time, fine leaved, purple creeping boobialla.  I know, it isn’t very purple.  There is a lot of mystical thinking in plant naming to my way of thinking.

Here they are, next to the baby saltbush.  Hopefully they will grow.

There was a gift of late figs from an old friend who came to visit.

Japanese Indigo ready for the freezer (yes, that is the whole crop unless you count the seeds, which are still the real crop at this stage).

And many more limes, thrown from the tree in gale force winds.  There may yet be more marmalade!
