day of the triffids

The biggest success story in our garden is the native vine growing over the back patio.  We struck some cuttings from The Bay's house last year, and since we have been able to keep the goats out of the yard, the vine is powering at a rate of around 30 cm per week!  
Our original plan was bougainvillea, but it wasn't happy with the brackish water.  The native vine can be found on the beach, so we provide the perfect sandy, salty conditions. The hope is that it will cover our shower courtyard and tankstand.  Grow, baby, grow.
