Two panoramas from the front and back of Mary-Ann and Colin's property:

(above) from the front verandah, and from the back (below):

I'm leaving these as a stand-alone part of my report. The panos came out at several megs each and I've trimmed them down but still they are nearly a meg each and that can be a real trial with a slow connection.

Lovely panoramas Elaine. Stunning area.

Isn't it just! Well worth the slightly hair-raising drive (speaking as one who has got out of the habit of distance driving to new places).

LOL - I thought you meant the drive way! 

they worked out very well - thanks Elaine and thanks so much for coming !

Nice pics Elaine well done it was nice to see you again up in I thought gods country,I shall be taking my wife up there via Samford valley very soon.

do drop in anytime ! cant guarantee the spread we had - thanks everyone but there is always a cuppa here

Mary-ann  just wanted to say how lovely your homestead is, amazing how much work you guys have put in to get it to the stage it is at now.  The views are to die for, must be so calming to sit outside of a night with a drink and just relax.  Question - was one of your trees a cherry where the fruit was supposed to taste like cherrys?  If so can you give me the name of it please.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
