I've been waging a huge battle over the past three months against a massive weed invasion (also an after effect of the bushfire). It seems that the bare ground was a big opportunity for the weeds to move in, especially because neither of my neighbours with paddocks seem to do any weed control. First it was a species of huge green thistle (not scotch thistle) with thick hollow stems, and now it's dandelions. Massive clumps of the things that are now starting to go to seed, so it's a fight to see who wins. I think they are! But I can't afford to give up.

This creek is dry three years out of four.
Scented sundew out in flower. Several big patches of this near the house but nowhere else.
We often see this wallaby mother near the house. Recently she's had a joey hanging out of her pouch as she eats. Now the joey is out and about, running in wide circles around her (father was present today for the first time) like a mad toddler finding its bearings!
