Littlehampton Clouds & approaching storm

After a few warmer days and the Weather Bureau forecasting evening storms the clouds let everyone who was outside know that something was brewing. There is always something to see in clouds whether it is the early grey glimpses of approaching rain or the denser clouds trying to stop the sunset breaking through.
And now, two hours later, lightning, wind and rain.

August Journal - 2021

With a wet winter about to end the first of the native wildflowers & Orchids are appearing. This is a rewarding personal time for me with years of no domestic stock and the efforts to encourage more wildflowers beginning to show.
There are quite a few Euros & Kangaroos who seem intent on damaging some of the young tree seedlings but overall they seem to leave the wildflowers alone. Apart from jumping on them. Lots of visible ant activity at ground level, there is always the falling of branches & sometime trees, just those ongoing bushland cycles.
