But part of that procrastination involved cutting back the black coral vine (Kennedia nigricans) that was not only cascading over the fence but also running across the laneway to the next house. Had I not done something about it this weekend, it would have formed a barrier across the lane and smothered the neighbours. So I saved their lives instead of working on the new degree. A worthy activity, I think. I might mention it at work tomorrow when someone asks me how far I got with the proposal.
If you're thinking of planting a black coral vine, ask yourself these questions:
- Do I live on a block half the size of Queensland?
- Do I enjoy spending my weekends doing nothing but pruning vegetation?
See 'em together here.
