we went for a spring bushwalk yesterday along the Marley Track in the Royal National Park
a beautiful sunny day the bush was buzzing with bees and birds
Darwinia fascicularis ssp fascicularis
Grevillea speciosa
Ricinocarpus pinifolius
Pultenaea sp
Patersonia sp
Thelymitra ixioides
Boronia microphylla
the Deer Pool
Marley Creek feeds into the Deer Pool
it’s been very dry so the waterfall was a trickle
cooling off watching the dragonflies dance

    Such a marvelous exotic walk! Thanks for sharing the pictures, really contrasts with our autumn walks here at the moment.

  3. Springing there-falling here dear Mo. It is most other there, not the least tamed like so many of our parks here. You are so tiny in the landscape. Of course I love Patersonia best.

    the colors are so subtle. makes them even more dear. Love seeing you there, in the water.

      (((Dee))) I love how tough and resilient plants are in this ancient land where fire is a regular visitor in the hot summers

      • deemallon says:

        Speaking of tough and resilient I heard a definition of strength — Aboriginal — that measured in days. To say someone was “three days old” meant they would last three days in the bush.

    your natural world looks a lot spikier than mine, dry and brittle, a lot tougher perhaps!

      ….and also, quite beautiful; happen to be reading The Colour by Rose Tremain, set in new Zealand, the descriptions of the protagonists natural surrounding are breath taking, even whilst reading from my leisurely chair by the fire side…I imagine some of your big outdoors is just as wild and awesome
