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.

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.
