|How the garden used to look like….|
Brisbane has experienced an extremely long dry winter and spring period when everything became very dry and the lawns, crispy. However our garden, with a lot of tender love and care, looked like lush green jungle as we kept watering with collected rainwater. Everyone was hoping for rain for so long and it came eventually in the form of a massive, unusual storm (cyclone 2 type) combined with a huge amount of rain, strong wind and hail.

As a result, not only were the windows of our house broken and the façade dotted by the hail but the garden was completely hammered. The entire garden bed was flattened as nothing could withstand hail the size of golf balls. Paw Paw trees were completely stripped of leaves and most of our mangos and avocados ended up on the ground.
So we will start our garden beds from scratch and within 4 weeks we will start enjoying quick growing vegies like red radish and lettuce again. Nature is very resilient and powerful and everything eventually regrows.
