Last night we went along to the Noosa Booklaunch of her Memoir 'Whatever Happened to Diana Trask', held in the Coffee Club, we sat up the back....duh.....which explains the pic, too far away, night lighting and of course one could not be so rude as to use a flash!
The book promises to be a facinating read, have only got a little way in so far but am thoroughly enjoying it. Diana has had a very interesting life with singing being only one of her careers, but I guess like so many others I have wondered whatever happened, why did she, at the peak of her singing career, suddenly disappear from the music world?, the book answers the question, basically for love.........love for her husband Thom, but I shan't spoil your read, I shall let you discover the answer for yourself.

The bush on the right had a rather radical prune season before last, we had a gardener who would only do what he wanted and he wanted stalks with fluffy tops, pruned everything with a chain saw!! No amount of discussion or demonstration worked. Anyway, Snowballs being so forgiving they have grown back.....not so lucky with some other plants.

Good thing they have nice foliage, or they might find themselves on the Darlings list...a list that is shrinking as more and more trees and bushes bite the dust around here. Yep, its time for a gardening overhaul.
