A mad native rainforest regenerator, currently flat out trying to protect my young charges (my mistresses, according to my wife, who resents their getting more attention than she does) from a hungry wildlife population. I have a rapidly growing collection of potted rainforest trees, which, due to the dryness, I am reluctant to plant out.
Now that the drought has broken I am planting about 8 trees a week to get as much as possible in the ground before it gets too cold. I am aiming to get as much biodiversity onto my block as possible while sticking to plants native to this area. This is not to say I don't have elsewhere's plants in my ornamental beds, but even there they are 95% Australian.
Update July 2005: the block is now almost 100% planted out, with only a few small areas that I've not yet cleared and planted, and understory plants to go in as the canopy developes. I'm feeling very good about slowing down on the physical work and spending more time getting to know and appreciate my plants.
