This is one of many pages describing plants and animal life that we have in our garden. In many cases, we don't know what they are. Comments welcome.

By default the photos on this page are relatively small (“thumbnails“). Click on them to get progressively larger photos.


This is Ballota, which I considered a weed. We found it in the paddocks in April 2010. It looks a little like Catmint, but it doesn't have the scent, and the flowers have long since faded. Peter Jeremy tells me that the orange spots are Harlequin beetles, though that term seems to be applied to many and varied beetles. None of the ones I've found look like these.
