The weather has finally quit throwing summer at us and has now pleasantly cooled off. Rain has been making an appearance and has germinated little sprigs of green which are just starting to pop out of the earth. This is an exciting time for the farm, however a lot is riding on the next rain. All of this growth may shrivel up and die in the sun if the timing isn’t right.
This is a spider I’ve had my eye out for for over a year! So stoked to have found it yesterday…They normally hide in white flowers.
Last year we watched the entire farm turn a luscious green, only to see it all dry and go brown again. Talk about a disaster. I’d never seen anything quite like it. We’ve got our fingers crossed that the mother nature will help Brian and Tessa (and all of the regional and national farmers).
The past couple of days I’ve taken a few hours to bush walk, it’s been clearing my mind and leaves me feeling excited and refreshed. I brought Tessie with me, and spent hours trying to see what was starting to flower. There wasn’t a whole lot of action when you looked at the landscape however with a little bit of effort I was able to find a few for this year.
I’ll definitely miss this activity…It’s such a relaxing and enjoyable way to enjoy the day. I’ve heard there is lots of wildflower variety near Perth as well, so I might join a society to keep amongst the action!
What do you do when you need to slow down and relax your mind?
