Our world is big beautiful and diverse and all our little corners
of it are different. Here are a few snaps of one of my special place,
The Grampians in Victoria, great granite outcrops and a wonderful
garden of Eden after rain. This year there has been plenty of rain,
in fact, enough to wash out most of the roads and bridges in the area.
A little sun orchid smiling at my camera.
A great big patch of hooded green orchids, you really had to
mind where you planted your feet to avoid damaging them.
The white stems of trees burnt a couple of years ago
behind ghostly white bushes.
Mind your feet, a tiny bright green bush, no more than 4-5"
high with a citrus coloured bud.
A great big Banksia, tucked between Eucalypts and Acacias.
The ants are building high again, looks like there is going to
be more big rain. I hope it does not wash out any more roads.
A recent fire seems to have wiped out all vegetation but the
Xanthorrhoea has survived and is sending up a great flower
An odd plant that I had never seen before with leaves like a
Holly only softer.
Some of the erosion caused by the great rains earlier in the year
and the footprint of a wallaby in the soft moist sand.
I know this is a very long post, have I put you to sleep yet?
If so, just leave me a thank you note and hit the hay. If you are
still awake, bear with me, there are only 3 pikkies to go.
If you don't enlarge any of the others, at least embiggen this
one to see God's own garden.
Normally this country is dry but after rain, ah, after rain it
all comes alive
and, aha, there it comes.
