March 2021 Photo Challenge - Entries HERE Please

As a bit of fun each month, we run this informal Photo Challenge, it's open to everyone.
There are no prizes, although if someone wishes to "Sponsor" the Challenge, I would be happy to talk to you about it.

This month's challenge, as chosen by last month's winner (RB) is "Gardens or garden tools"

It doesn't matter if you are a professional photographer with Thousand dollar equipment on an exotic location with a planned set up, or a simple Joe (or Joanne) out for a stroll with a camera phone and a spur of the moment happy snap. Either way, WE WANT YOU to submit your entry. Please.

I know I said this was just a bit of fun, but there are some rules (we all need rules right?)
The Rules:
* This thread is only for posting your entry, together with any comments/explanation/details you'd like to add about your own photo.
[sometimes this may help sway the judges]
* However, comments on other people's entries, or any "other" shots of your own you'd like to share, are welcome But in the appropriate place, the "Comments and Other Images Thread" -> HERE.
* And, please only one entry (that's just one image) per person in THIS Thread, (but you can change it out at any time if you get a better one)
* Importantly, the image must be your "own work" [which means you either took the shot or were instrumental in the planning and execution of the shot] and
* all other normal forum rules, and image size limits, apply.

The image doesn't necessarily have to be taken this month, but, if you can, that is the object of the challenge!

In this regard, YES, the image may be an existing one that you have previously posted, unless of course it has already been voted a previous photo challenge winner.

The winner of the public vote, which will be run at the end of the month, will get to choose next month's topic and have their photo immortalised in our "Photo Challenge Hall of Fame".

Good Luck!

A tool on one end

My favourite garden tool found in a relatives shed. Is it a hoe an adze or a chopped off mattock? . Very short. Great for tilling. Should call it the get-around-to-it.

Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens with the grand children.
They make such an adorable & close couple with an age gap under 2 years, this is one of their favourite places.
Thanks for the idea John

The Heart of Gardens

Not the prettiest of sights although a major fundemental aspect is the
Humble Composting area !

In the far Bin & under the blue tarp is a 1/2 cube of mature compost.
Just infront of that is a pile of 'fines'

The eternal battle

36 volts versus 36 inches of untamed under-trampoline grass.

The grass won, I ran out of nylon cord
