winter afternoon

such a beautiful day today … frost this morning, then sunshine and just a hint of spring in the air

visited our block after work this afternoon, and couldn’t resist taking these photos of a wonderful gum tree not far from where our house will be built

photo 1 (that’s mt elephant in the background) –

photo 2 (the cattle are on the neighbouring property) –

unique flora

just to show you what ‘the bush’ is like around st marys – here’s a photo of some wildflowers in the bush section of our block of land near mt elephant –

there are also a lot of banksia trees growing there, which look quite strange to anyone used to the vegetation in the northern hemisphere (myself included) –

next time i go out there i’ll take some more photos, as spring is just around the corner

who knows what will be growing there next …
