|Holly has been teaching me how to live in the Australian suburban bush. The first lesson is that all the trees are gum-trees, unless I would guess that they are, in which case they're myopic or king lear or something. Gum-trees range from white bark with round leaves and up-pointing branches to black bark with pointy leaves and down-pointing branches, so that's handy.|
Also, there is a clover-like plant with flowers on stalks (gasp), of which the flower-stalks are a delicious snack, known as "sour sobs". I'm not sure whether that's actually "SOBs", "sobs", or just a name. But they are delicious anyway.
Finally, and most importantly, many houses have lemon trees in their back gardens, so I must live here forever, since I've always wanted a lemon tree.
Oh yes, and there's an odd plant that's similar to one in America, even to sharing the name; "Supermarket". Unlike the American variety, the ones here bear edible fruit. And crisps. And bread which has no milk in it, though, alas, neither does it have hair.
