in a sea of green

an abundance of food

new spring growth

At the Royal Botanic Gardens, Cranbourne this spring New Holland Honeyeaters seemed to be feeding wherever blossom was forming. This annexe of the Melbourne gardens displays an exciting range of Australian climatic zone plant species within the formal area and also an experience of natural sandy heathland with rare local indigenous bandicoots within the larger perimeter.

New year

the first full moon

exposing dark shadows

This glorious full moon rising over the oval beside Long Hollow in Beaumaris, Melbourne on the evening of January 5th 2015 promises much natural beauty for the coming year. As the moon rose shadows receded exposing wonderful darkened tints of daytime colours across the grass and amongst the bordering trees.
