Life in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by a blow-in from the mainland
Saturday, September 3, 2011
It's not a very pretty name for a plant that is quite lovely to look at. We have many luminous green carpets of the stuff on our property. In winter in the rain, it is so bright it is almost fluorescent green. It's common in the alpine and sub-alpine areas of Tasmania and grows well in very wet and nutrient poor soils... hmm that's definitely true of our place. It holds a lot of water and walking on it feels like treading on a soft cushion.
Escaped Sydney in 2010 for a piece of paradise in Tasmania's Huon Valley. I'm a keen walker, remote worker, incompetent gardener, Bernese Mountain Dog owner, fan of almost anything German (food, language, cars, beer), amateur linguist, chook fancier, childfree.
