I grew up in an area nearly devoid of trees. Farmers had cleared the land in earlier days of settlement, and very minimal replanting had taken place. So imagine my surprise to find forests in my new location! There’s pine trees, and eucalyptus(gum) trees, grown in plantations, as well as sizable trees in the grazing paddocks and along the roadsides. Talking about roadsides, this area in the photos is a couple of kms up the road from home, and it’s full of fabulous native plants from tiny groundcovers to big trees. Even some rabbits hiding there, which I try to catch, and one day I will be successful! The size of the plants here make me look quite small, but really, I’m a HUGE dog!
