Burnt and growing Grass Tree (Xanthorrhoea sp.), Wilsons Promontory was recovering from fire when we visited it last year, and this year it had only just reopened after serious floods. Amazing to see nature recovering.

  1. Fern fronds uncurling are one of my very favourite things to see. These are lovely pics of your bushwalk and spring arriving in Victoria!

  2. I can't believe you found a Morel! This must've been so exciting - would've loved to have been there for that. Beautiful pictures...thanks for sharing them. xx

  3. Christine, I said to Kate you would wish you had seen the Morel - we'll have to go hunting.

    Thanks for the kind comments Naturally Carol.


In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.

And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
"Winter is dead.”
