Ironbark woodland

before the heat arrives

last cool breezes

Charlie loves roaming in the Ironbark bush at Bendigo. There are always lots of new scents and sightings to keep her imagination working. The area in this photo was once part of the most extensive deep lead gold mining works in Australia during the mid-nineteenth century. This bushland was totally obliterated during the gold mining times and what we see today is a regeneration of sorts, the original can never return. There are some beautiful native orchids that flower briefly across a period from mid winter to early spring.
