Winter time

On my walk through the Bush Owl land Reserve I was delighted to see the Pink Heath out in flower.  It is the State of Victoria's floral emblem.

There is always a Wattle tree out in flower and they always brighten up a dull winter's day.



Lots of replanting of the vegetation taking place

and there are always trees coming down over pathways etc. after the rain

Raindrops clinging on to the spikey branches.

There is always something different to see when going out for a walk.

That's all for now,

Last of the Autumn colours

The Winter season has just  begun and I saw these Ornamental Pear trees on my walk last weekend.

A Corkscrew Willow

and more Autumn colours to brighten up a dull day

Maidenhair Fern I noticed in the Owl Bushland Reserve growing wild.

That's all for now,

Last day of May

The Autumn colours continues

A burn off during the cooler weather

On my walk I saw this lovely banksia flower

as well as this Australian themed letter box

Last weekend I made sticky date pudding for sweets which all the family enjoyed.

That's all for now,

Autumn 2019

The Autumn colours were late this year due to the Indian summer we had.



There has been some interesting fungi around all in different shapes and sizes.

I saw these lovely proteas when visiting Melbourne recently.

With the rain we have been lucky to have had moss has started to appear.

An Autumn garland.

Whether it is dry or wet I enjoy my walks especially in the Autumn season.

That's all for now,

Anzac Day 2019 and late Easter Sunday post

Anzac Day - Lest we forget

On Easter Sunday morning we

enjoyed this lovely

sunrise

the sunrise did not last long, our reward for getting up early.

That's all for now,

The 15th Australasian Quilt Convention Quilt Show

I always enjoy going to the Royal Exhibition Building



There are always lots of vendors

and lots of beautiful quilts to see

I took this picture on one of my walks.  We are starting to see some Autumn colours despite our Indian summer.


That's all for now,

A long dry summer

This summer it we have had some smoky days from the fires

the ground has been so dry

not much green grass but lots of yellow colour


It was nice to see these Ibis


 and this Eastern Rosella

and these three during my walks

A grey Heron

At last we have had some good rain fall

After the rain the sun came out and I was lucky to see this double rainbow.

It has been a dry long hot summer and as we head into Autumn I hope we get lots of rain to replenish the water catchments etc.

That's all for now,

Nessie
