Hello! We spent all day Monday on buses, planes, cars, in airports and basically we sat and sat and sat some more...so yesterday we stretched ours legs and went for a walk down to the river.
There have been much needed rains and floods here which have given the trees, including this sprawling river red gum, some nourishment. It was beautiful to see red rumped parrots and blue wren as we walked along.
The grass was pushed over and covered in silty mud. These stalks were slowly lifting up to the sky again. There is so much long thick grasses everywhere, kangaroo grass rising higher than I have ever seen it.
We had a lovely stroll (despite the mozzies and locusts everywhere!) it was spectacular to see the new growth on all the trees and shrubs and really refreshing to see pools of water where the ground has been scored with deep cracks...more soon, hope you're all enjoying the lead up to Christmas,
