Where the Dewdrops Cry and the Cats Meow

K'boom - on Tuesday morning they landed mightily on the Common, delivered fresh by the redoubtable Kevin from the excavations at the Parade Apartments development on Merri Parade.  Merri Merri Developments have very kindly helped us out with some of the enormous basalt boulders that lie just under the surface of most of our neighbourhood (as anyone trying to dig an ambitious trench in the back yard can bitterly attest).

These are going to look just fantastic when we plant out our indigenous garden on the north-east site in a couple of weeks.  We're sorting out a backhoe and operator as we speak to get these placed just right (and a big thanks to Rob Wallace for his valuable advice on logistics).  Details on our next planting day soon - meanwhile, a huge thank you to Russell Gordon of Merri Merri Developments and his foreman Michael Kildarry for coming through for us with the big rocks.  Really appreciated.
