Ok, I know it is very self indulgent but … we had some aerial photos taken of our block. Now, I can’t help myself, I have to show them to you.
There are advantages and disadvantages of having the shots taken in winter. The obvious advantage is: it is green, but the down side is the deciduous trees are bare. In the top shot you can see, from left to right and back to front, the compost bins, two water tanks, the shed (with a small tank), the vegie patch, the house, the garage, and another water tank. The green on the left side and front of the house are the two passionfruit vines.
Most of the trees are bare but in the top right hand you can see the olive trees. You can also make out seven liquid ambers behind them. The spots around the trees is because we had just sprayed so the grass is dying off. There is wisteria on the arbor down the centre of the photo.
The bottom two photos show the whole of the block. The green trees mid way up are more olive trees. Next to them, to the left, are the citrus trees (you can actually see fruit on the trees). In front of the olives are the grape vines and in front of the citrus trees and next to the grape vines are the rose gardens. If you look closely, you can see that we have only pruned half of them. The white dots are the rose name tags. The green tree mid right is a macadamia tree and the two green dots towards the arbor are avocado trees. At the bottom of the block are native trees. In front of them, you can see the fence line.
