Taken on a wander through a small reserve not far from where I live. The reserve has a number of bushcarers that look after it and nurture it by removing the more noxious weeds and plants tha thave crept in over the years. Im constantly surprised by the diversity in this small patch of scrub. One can only imagine what it must have been like before whitefellas arrived.
Its common name is running postman!
Clematis twined around the fork of a tree. Here’s a close up.
And a beautiful pink lady orchid….of which there were many.
Its still what we call winter down here…that roughly translates as lots of intermittent rain, skies full of clouds , gusty winds and in between beautiful sunny days that we would describe as coolish! In between showers this afternoon I went for a walk across the road from where I live …im lucky enough to have a piece of remnant scrub which never ceases to amaze and bring smiles to my face.
Its limestone country and so there are beautiful ponds scattered around…after rain.
There were clusters of donkey orchids dotted around
Local hakeas and beautiful yellow hibertia.
And there was more!
Biodiversity rules…..so lucky to have this as my backyard.
