Trivial Pursuits Feral Fossil Style

Green stuff growing in the garden.  

A feral rock melon and tomato from the compost bin.
 More stuff including a grevillea, a tufty thing that is indiginous to the area, a piece of timber for decoration and . . .
Sunflowers courtesy of the bird seed, and ...
An obligitory closeup of the grevillea flower
And while we're at it you can look at the flowers on the feral tomatoes as well

 Bit more growth, and was going to show you a closeup of the little native bees in the sunflower,however
they all buzzed off! 
Yeah! it is funny!
There are however 2 shadows on the petals of the little elusives. 

The rain tank that was our only source for water until the new one, is back where it came from thanks to a sterling job by ever faithful and mostly starts first time - Bobby.
Waiting patiently for the delivery of our second obligatory tank is the new tank pad.
You all still awake? really exciting stuff next.
 Jim chipping the surface for the next patch
3 patches in a row

Patch 4 done this morning. Use the shade cloth to keep the seed moist. Germination in 5 days.

Not quite enough to finish the lounge room
Going to Bundy next week so will get enough to finish this area.(My knees need a recovery time before we tackle the kitchen dining area)

THIS is the culprit from last night's to-do
Jim dropped one of his pills, and quick as a flash, Jarrah was on it and it was gone. The medication was an horrendous overdose for a dog, and the consequences were dire.
After hours 150k round trip to the emergency 24 hour Vet clinic? 
Nope - Google.
Luckily I had some hydrogen peroxide (thanks jewelry making) and 3 teaspoon later we got it back in three installments. One out side and the new floor has been christened.
This morning no ill effects apart from being starving.

Got a new secondhand camera don't-ya-know and my eyes still glaze over when I read the manual.
So will end with some boring test shots.
