Spring weather

16 10 2009

Finally, the first warm day in months! It was a long hot summer extending almost into June, and it’s been a long cold winter, extending well into October. Today we had the first fine, warm (but pleasant), sunny day in months. And it was my day off! So after I’d done some gardening, I packed a picnic lunch and we headed out for a drive. Everything is still really green at the moment, though in a few weeks the heat will dry it all out and it will turn yellow/brown and the weather will get too hot for a picnic in the bush.

We stopped at a picnic spot on the Blackwood River for lunch, and saw a couple of bobtail goannas (we’d seen a live snake on the road just before we got to the picnic spot), as well as some blue wrens. Only three or four cars crossed the bridge in the hour or so we were there so it was incredibly quiet except for the birdsong.
