OK, things are not great. In the mean time, from day to day…

…From day to day, the signs of spring are popping up everywhere:

Hardenbergia on unpromising ground near the Welsh Village, July 21. In European terms, it’s winter…but it’s looking more and more like spring to us.

And just as heroic: Eucalypts growing out of nothing, on mullock heaps at the slate quarry near the Welsh Village:

Eucalypts finding nourishment in the rocks: to keep your morale up, avoid looking at the feral pines in the background.

    I visited Monument Hill in Kilmore last Sunday (7th August) and yes, Hardenbergia was too in flower. Also blossoming: Hovea heterophylla, Leucopogon virgatus, Drosera aberrans, Acacia mucronata, Acacia aculeatissima and Daviesia latifolia. I don’t have historical data on phenology, yet it does seem that Spring has sprung earlier this year.
