Spring All Around

Normally my impressions and thoughts of Australia is of a dry brown dusty country. But I wanted to share these pics I took of the countryside just down the road from us. (Near Shiree's and the house we rented).

All the country side is purple with little flowers. It's just beautiful.

As I drive Sarah to Day Care - this is the view. The entire ridge is covered. I wish I could show you the whole 180 degree view.

Last weekend we went for a drive to some nearby country town's - Toodyay and Northam (about 45min - 1hour drive) and there were similar scene's. There was one area that was all covered in Yellow flowers.

The 2005 Chapel Hill spring count on May 1 was an extraordinary count, one of the best of the past 20 years. We happened to pick a great migration day and found 132 species, well above the 10-year average of 122, and our best count since 1986. We counted 11755 birds, well above the average of 10340, and the number of birds per party-hour, 72, was a little above the average 67. The observer effort was a great 163.7 party hours (average 156), though we had fewer counters than average - 42 counters in 23 parties, average 49 counters in 23 parties.Spring doesn't officially start until next month, but for some plants and wildlife it seems it's already begun.Experts say they have seen loads of signs that spring has already sprung, including butterflies, frog spawn, and spring flowers.
