Spring shower would be welcome.

in-memory-of-the-hard-labour--lives-of-the-early-wood-cutters.Chris, from Mt Macedon in Victoria, visited this morning for a 90 minute walk/climb to the present lantana line where we work. Beautiful morning with a cool breeze. Walked through different re-growth areas, teenage red, white and pencil cedar forests. Viewed fungi’s and ferns. Re-growth around the dead stumps of past woodcutter’s harvest. Still stately and solid, scars from the axe and saw are still visible on the stumps. Long view, saw die off on the eastern side of Night-Cap track. Visible if closely viewed in the ridge photo posted. I suspect brush growth thrived during the long period of rain, now we are into our 4th week with-out significant rain shallow rooted plants are dying.

A week-end of gentle rain.

Red cabbage are suddenly all ready for harvest. Following the rain the garden has visibly grown and cabbages which were forming are suddenly splitting.

Koala is still making itself heard. I am hoping it finds a mate soon. This photo is of the new forest behind the vegetable garden where the koala has spent the last 4 weeks.
