    These vines were planted this morning. I wonder how long it will be before it is visited and utilised by Richmond Birdwing butterflies...watch this space, though it might be a few years...

    These berries are edible, not amazingly tasty, but they once reportedly saved the life of the survivors of a plane crash - a Stinson on route from Brisbane to Sydney, in 1947. Makes me wonder if anyone has ever tried to find out what vitamins they contain. https://www.smh.com.au/national/in-a-heros-footsteps-20020625-gdfe7y.html

    A large branch fell onto our carport roof, without damaging it fortunately, but it left a clearer view of parts of a vine forest, with vine trunks as thick as my arm.
