I ordinarily wait until Equinox to announce "Spring is here!". However, it was a few weeks ago, when all of us noticed a change in the air.
The nights were warmer. The flowers were blooming - bright and colourful. The rain, though intermittent, began.
All of the pictures below have been taken over the last week. As you can see, Spring has Sprung around here and all manner of Mother Earth's beautiful living creatures are emerging...
|10ft Python - Next door|
This big guy was so placid. He was quite happy to have us watch him and take photos.
|6ft Python - Our back yard|
This little fella was not so nice.
Hissing and positioning himself to strike, so a single photo had to be enough!
|6ft Python - Nearby home, Eumundi|
Another wonderfully placid fellow.
He was discovered when My Man stepped on him (!) when we were out house hunting.
Aren't children observant?
These prints had disappeared not long after the sun came up this morning.
Possum prints in the morning dew, discovered by Mr Turtle during the time when Grown Ups were hustling and bustling before school.
Out house hunting again. Of course this is where my boys want to move to! A family of kangaroos, just eating grass on the side of the road, in Doonan.
A Sleepy Skink lizard, has taken up Larry's position under our front decking.
Certainly not so nice.
This tick was removed during the week, from Little Pipkin's shoulder!
Many folks around here lose their pets to ticks.
An awful little creature, commonplace up here.
Just some of the extraordinary flowers, blooming in our garden right now.
Apologies, I don't know the proper names for them all.
I hope each of you are enjoying the changes of the season, whether it be
Bright and Beautiful Spring or
Golden, Twirling Autumn!
