  1. Very nice! Love the fence board and the fuzzy seed pods. I get the feeling those are from an Australian-native plant, and maybe they need fire in order to open. Am I right?

  2. Come to think of it brown is rarely featured as a colour for the garden! Great photos as usual :)

  3. @Alan, the fuzzy seed pods are from a Banksia speciosa--yes, an Australian native. You are right, the seeds are only released after a fire.

    @Mark, so much around us is brown in the winter, but it need not be an ugly color. I quite like it, actually. After all, we painted our house a shade of brown :-).
