Week 3 May 2010: Rain = 15.5 millimetres
Planting total this week = 26
Not very much work outside this week. There were some rainy days and others were overcast and cold. Split some firewood, collected kindling and lit the fire a few times.
We did put in some cuttings including some Grevillea jephcottii material. This is a rare species from northern Victoria. There are a number of specimens in the garden but over the years a couple of plants have expired. This is an easy species to propagate from cuttings and we need more plants for new garden beds.
The rain brought out a few Swift Moths. Rain in autumn and early winter often triggers the emergence of these moths from their underground pupae cases. Some of these moths are rather large (see image).
