    Jason by the way our weather is going we look like having a long hot summer.
    today hottest Oct day since 1914.
    This means early mulching and a good soaking twice a week, thank goodness I have a good sprinkler system.

    We have to replace them every year to get the good flowers.


    I have to move the Aquilegia when it starts to shoot next year as its up against a rose bush.

    Rob is that a native of your area its a beautiful gold colour.

    Our Aquilegia's grow like weeds from the 100s of seeds each year.

    I planted some very rich port wine coloured ones last season, our garden store sells them in flower for that instant garden its the only way you know what colour you will get each year then you get all the crosses that is one of the beauties of our garden waiting for new colours of many plants.

    Yes, that's our native, Aquilegia chrysantha here in Arizona. Over in the mountains of the west coast we have Aquilegia formosa, a red and yellow species:

    Here's another that I took up in Glacier Nat. Park, but I don't think it's a native.

    Yes I know Keith -
    when I had been in AUS about 35 years ago, friends abused us to take seeds for them from Queensland to NSW.
    We did it, because we did not know, it was not allowed. Later they told us ... :whistle:
    But nobody controlled us in the greyhound bus. ;)

    Regards Ev :)

    I have fish rivers up north where the boat and trailer must be hosed and cleaned before it leaves the ramp area this is to stop weeds spreading.

    I have been stopped several times when driving and checked for fruit.

    At a Torris Straights small airport I had an apple I was going to eat when I got off the plain, it was either eat it now or bin it.

    At the Cairns Airport they have dogs checking for fruit when arriving from any of the Islands.

    The dogs are so good they can pick up fruit traces in an empty bag I actually saw that happen on my last trip.
