New Forest.

Nice to wake up to a dry day. Spent the morning spotting re growth in my first ever zone of regeneration, way back in 1994. This is the new canopy. 1994-cleared-of-lantana Busy week just past. Visitors and rain and cooking.

Rereading too, William Burrough’s “Junky”, insight into addiction and then of course my book of the year, Don Watson’s,  ‘The Bush’.  Today I learnt that the tributary of the Richmond River, named after the Duke of Richmond, was Wilson’s Creek, named after the first family that set up here, the matriarch arriving on a raft with a dairy cow and it is believed, the first Lantana plants which now cover thousands of hectares. rain-and-more-rain
