Lily of the Nile

Today I've been out at the retreat centre in Gembrook, pulling out agapanthus with Woodsy and Bella and Rohan. Agapanthus is a really, really annoying weed from southern Africa. It's really hard to get rid of, because it can grow back from just a little bit of root that's left in the soil, so we were using mattocks to try to dig out all the roots as well.

These are some pictures I took of the magnolia tree that was flowering close to where we were working:

One mans menace is anothers pleasure. You are pulling up the agapanthus, here we are paying twenty five dollars for a leter pot with one in it. To bad we cannot teleport yours here it would fund several of your projects. I am glad though to see you are taking care to preserve our Lords creation.
