October Journal - 2020

The main highlight in October was the annual wildflower display. I missed getting any photos of the range of native orchids this year but was able to get some of the flowers. More of those photos will be displayed in the 'Images' section of this site at a later date.
For info, each year I try and grab a few seeds from some of the easier plants and scatter them. Bit by bit the volume of wildflowers has been increasing.

September Journal - 2020

As is normal this time of year weather fluctuations have resulted in both reasonable rainfalls & strong winds at times.
General observations have been that there is a bit more Salvation Jane than previously, new tree & shrub plantings have gotten off to a good start, a slight overall decline in Rabbit numbers & some of the 2-3 year old trees being damaged by male Kangaroos. Seems to be much more birdlife, a few younger Kangaroos & the first snake for Spring. Plus that constant variety of clouds.
