Exploring our bush

We spent the last few years getting rid of blackberries and privets on the property and also along the bush and it’s starting to show signs of success.

Since the weather was great, we decided to have a stroll down into the valley and into the bush – you don’t want to go there when it’s too wet. We found a nice spot in the gully for a picnic and had a go at other privets and blackberries. Definitely need to do more work on that over summer. Most of the time you can hardly walk in the gully because of all the water flowing in there.

I took a couple of nice pictures of ferns – they are so awesome in spring when they grow and unfold – or rather unroll!
