Sayonara Springtime

So... I'm a bit of a nerd about wildflowers. In my defence, our home town of Esperance, in Western Australia, is located between the Fitzgerald Biosphere and the Great Western Woodlands so that puts us right in the thick of some exciting wildflower action. A few of my wildflower snaps in this blog were taken in Mount Barker and in my garden (all WA natives) but most are from the wild and wonderful bushland in and around Esperance.

As we wave goodbye to Springtime, I wanted to share these images from our wildflower hunts during 2015. And this is just a glimpse of the incredible biodiversity in our neck o' the woods!

A note to the nomenclature purists - I've done my best to name each flower but there were still a few that escaped me. If you can help name or re-name any species, please feel free to chime in with a comment or send us an email and I'll stand corrected!

It rained and the roof leaks, but the cat has found a patch of sunshine and the self-sown seedlings are taking over the garden...life abounds even in the dry!

As you wrap your gifts in readiness for this Sunday, and as you prepare to receive kindness and gratitude from your loved ones, savour it for what it is. Their real worth may never become apparent, but they may one day be a reference point for a love that is real. Soak up the sunshine, hold it tight for days when it may rain!

The new day has well and truly started outside. Rather than slip in to the well worn Rossis that beckon at the front door, I have a cup of tea by my side and am taking the time needed to introduce the Ecolosophy family to its new team!
