Why the photos of the bedraggled plants you may well ask ?

It is a case of the same language being different in Australia and America ...
Here we refer to these as pot plants, however in America they are called potted plants - pot plants refer to something entirely different - and illegal.

So I have been challenged to show my plants to prove my innocence ;)

Currently we are experiencing a massive heat wave, the hottest in my lifetime so it is a struggle to keep some plants alive.
Today it is Saturday and the 'coolest' since this weather began last Monday - it 'only' reached 42C today


Our medicine cabinet in a plant is in this section - Aloe Vera


The vegatables are growing in foam boxes, tomatoes, zucchinis, beans, potatoes and basil
The palm fronds act as a shade for the plants and provide a help to the beans to attach to the trellis wire.



There are six ATC's like this for the insect theme swap.
Reminds me of a nursery rhyme when I was a child "ladybird, ladybird fly away home ..."
Don't remember all the words though.

"Your house is on fire and your kids are alone" is the next line in the ladybug poem (or very similar anyway).
LOL good to see all your plants are legal. :^) VBG

I was giggling at you proving your plants were legal!

Love the ladybugs and the other ATCs I saw. What do you do with them when you get them from people?
