Taken a couple of weeks ago in November – spring in Australia.

The large wagon, down by the dam (pond) in a cluster of young gums, now shares space with a rose or two and some creeping geraniums that are starting to establish.

Here are some earlier views of the wagon before spring.

The deep pink rose is a climbing Queen Elizabeth.

The vintage bicycle slowly settles in with the rocks and boulders, with shrubs, lavenders, geraniums, mums and a climbing China Doll rose that has started to take off this season.

That’s Gracie on the wine barrel.  The barrels are large hogshead size more or less.

Close up of of a wagon wheel.  You can see where I’ve had to tie the rose cane down to keep it a lateral rod.
