This past week the mauve dahlias are out and making a scene at the back door. They are being grown in our container gardens amongst vegetables. They certainly add a nice bit of colour to the garden.

And here is a picture from the top of Castle Rock looking towards the Stirling Ranges this morning. There was a fire starting which you don’t really get to see in this picture, but it grew throughout the day. Australia is dotted with fires this summer.

About Petit Paradis

I am on a journey with my family to transition as closely as practicable to a state of self-reliance in suburbia. I practice permaculture principles in our house, garden and community. We are on the southern coast of Western Australia. To our north is the rest of the world. To the south, Antarctica.
