One of the main structural features in Zone 1, the unirrigated native garden in my front yard, is an Acacia coriacea or Wirewood. It flowers in autumn and by now is developing long curly tangly seedpods, popular with the Australian Ringneck parrot (which should be coming to visit very shortly). This week there’s been a lot of rain, and I’ve been watching the drops collect and slide off curl after curl.
