What a great photo, my son found a large python skin in our shed which backs onto our chook pen, a while ago a bantam rooster of ours went missing without a trace, not a feather or a hole in the fence in sight, this may be our answer!

What kind of snake is that? I'm pretty sure we don't have them here and I'm *really* happy about that.
edited to add that I checked and apparently you do have pythons there, I wasn't aware of that, thought perhaps someone's *pet* had gotten out. I would not like to walk out my door and see that, in fact, I think I'd have to give up gardening all together and take up indoor activities, like knitting or something...anything. All I worry about here is the occasional rattler and they're few and far between. You have my respect and admiration if you can garden with friends like that hanging around.

I saw something on australia day you definately don't want to see in your garden! I nearly stood on a brown snake only metres from our back door. It certainly made me the fool as I had spent the few hours previously berating our son for playing in the hay bales down the back (where I assumed the buggers would be) I am scared of snakes to begin with, but sunbaking by my herb garden is just too much! I usually tromp around the gardens near the house barefoot, but now I put my boots on and stomp everywhere! It's a double bonus really, the snakes feel me comming and everyone else leaves me alone, too scared to aproach the crazy woman in steel caps!

Hi weed_woman ,
I know what you mean about the wind .
A group of 15 of us climbed Mt. Warning Sunday .
It snowed while we were up there .
I made Hot Coffee and Chocolate for all our group .
When We got home our pool was completely covered by leaves . eeek !!!

OMG ginge! I didn't know it snowed on Mt Warning!
My yard wasn't too bad actually. I picked up Eucalypt sticks all through the day and piled them for the next campfire. There was leaves in the pool, but 'Creepy' will eat them over the next few days, or Hubby will scoop em out.
I gave the shade house and nursery a good 20 minute water (tank) and there were breaks during the day where it didn't blow at all, so I took a break myself with a cuppa in warm spot.
I've been reading the thread on soursobs. I guess they are something you don't want to see in the garden either! I only have the creeping oxalis and I pull it out now'n'then, but it always comes back. I don't care! I'll smother it one day when I revamp the part of the garden its in. Do you have nut grass up there?

Just reading in the paper where they say a large number of dead birds,flying foxes and fish have been found here in qld and are attributing it to the unusually cold conditions we have experienced here in the last couple of weeks.Even brisbane and areas north along the coast have been hit with frosts and in places where they say they have never seen frost before.Ginger is this the first time you've had frost where you live?The weather here in the last few days has been absolutely gorgeous...just like spring...will it last.ummm remains to be seen,enjoy it while its here..

Hi Ginger. Evidently in cooler climates you can protect your Canna's from frost by mulching them. It looks as though yours are mulched quite well and as Cannas are so hardy, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised in spring at the vigorous new growth.
What colour are your tropical Cannas, green or red foliage?

Thanks, ginger, I had a nice birthday. we had a campfire, 2 bottles of wine and some pizza & Hubby bought me a stereo for the car.
Back to gardening, I've got some red and green tropicannas too and they are just great around the pool for the foliage colour alone. I also have some orange, red and yellow flowered cannas around the gardens and hope they will form huge drifts, in time. What else have you got?

This was one that popped up all on it's own, but it didn't come back the following year. Also my yellow Cannas were a bit of a dud in their second year. I'm hoping this yera after a good fertilise, they will flower their heads off again!

Thanks Ginge! I do find them a bit fragile though, as the wind blows the stems down, or damages the petals. We get some pretty strong winds form time to time! I think as the clumps grow, they might shelter one another and maybe only the ones at the edge will cop it, which I will then prune when the winds are over. That sounds pretty logical hey?

Do you get this problem with your cannas ?
In the US they call this bug Leaf Curlers ???
The Leaf does NOT get curled by the Bug .
The bug just chews a hole through the leaf before it uncurls it self .
Like a borer would do . I have seen Green G hoppers on the curled up leaves .
Could it be them that are chewing the leaves ?

Hi Ginger,
Just saw your perforated Canna leaves. I would suspect some sort of grub or caterpillar as the culprit, remember this happened back when the leaf was much smaller and all rolled up. Grasshoppers, especially the big ones, tend to go up and down on the leaf edges, leaving them ragged, or eating them completely off the plant if they find them tender enough. I've seen close up films of the plague types eating - every bit of green just vanishes, it is very scary!

I am glad you are seeing signs of recovery from your nasty cold snap, we are getting a distinct feel of Spring down this way as well, though hoping for more rain as there is a long way to go to fill up the catchments and replenish the ground water for all of the mature trees and so on. I was saying to Chrissy earlier in the week that it is amazing just haw well many plants can recover from what at first will look like killing damage, and come back bigger and stronger than ever.

Best of luck for the new season, KK.

Hi Ginger, it looks quite decorative I reckon! No I haven't had anything like that with the Cannas, but have noticed it on other monocots like gingers, heliconias, elephant ears and such. With the Cannas they get terrible rust toward the end of the season, but I keep cutting them down and removing the rubbish untill the cold sets in.
I'm sure it is going to warm up soon!

I dug a piece out at a clients garden and popped it in a shitty spot, but it has survived so maybe I'll give it a nicer spot this spring. Thats another plant Ive seen the curl chewer bug holes in! The tropicana I posted last is in the same shitty spot, but since then they have flourished and there is about 5, metre wide clumps.

You have to be very careful where you stop in PNG .
Otherwise the locals will be all over you in a flash .

LOL Sue .
Any one who visits PNG is a target for Theft .
No ! I am not important at all .
My only sin in PNG is that I am WHITE .

This is the local Westpack Bank @ Port Moresby . Papua New Guinea .
Once you get past these Guys ,
There are Air Lock door before you get into the Bank .
Can you imagine this in Ozz ?

No thankyou even though it looks like that a bit down Sydney way at the moment...what with "the boss" in town.
I did not know it was that bad... although every now and then we hear of something bad happening...do people hate us because we are not one of them?
I have always thought of the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels ...and presumed we were mates...gee that is sad.

Yes Chris we were 64 years ago .
But now it is survival of the fittest up there .
When I left in 1974 everything was great .
Then in 1975 they got Independence .
End of Story .

This is a simple Hardware .
See the two layers of Razer Wire ?
