This Morning's Walk

All was calm this morning after yesterday's strong winds and rain. A cool, crisp morning so it was ideal walking weather, so we walked along the road to the airstrip. I wanted to check out whether any of the bush shrubs were beginning to flower. I found a couple of early bloomers so it won't be long now before more colour brightens up the road verges and bushland. From the airstrip we took a track which came out on Christmas Rock which was filled with rock pools of water.

This grevillia is just starting to flower

Ressurrection bush changes colour once the rains come. Last time I was there they were brown. Now they are becoming a bright orange colour.


  1. I wish my grevilleas were flowering. the honeyeathers check them out daily but it is still much too dry. I love it too when the country starts to regenerate. Our paddocks are getting a green tinge . . .

  2. Love the native grevilleas , the pink variety are so pretty, looks like candy floss!

  3. What a magic early morning walk, especially if it was cool and crisp. I really like the little rock pools, I wonder how long before they dry up again?
    The birds that gather in grevilleas can be amazing too.
