I keep finding these tiny "gardens" of fungi in odd spots on fallen trees - and upright ones, too.
Might explain why I'm currently writing science fiction...
These fungi amaze me - there were several on the one fallen tree.
And these were popping out of the top.
Visitors near my window. Hard to photograph as they move so fast.

I am now thinking these are pale vanilla lilies. Like the fringe lilies, they are blooming everywhere but you almost don't see them as you walk - they are so small and delicate.
This is new to me - the book says it is Slender Speedwell.
Plenty of birds around at the moment, most of which are high in the canopy. A flock of magpies are constantly flying around like black and white swooping flags, warbling and singing.
This is a crimson rosella, waiting for its friends to come back.

Another fringe lily, just because they are my favourites.
Blue pincushions - after a slow start they are all coming out on the north side.
Bluebell - not so many this year but this was a large one.
Vanilla lily - in my reference book these are purple but all the ones I have seen are white.
Often when a tree falls, it tried to keep growing, sending out lots of small spurts. This one has finally given up.

There are hundreds of milk maids everywhere this year. Here a spider is resting on one!

Milkmaids are popping up everywhere on the northern side (more direct sunlight).
A roo stops to watch the watchers!
Fringe lilies have long been a favourite of mine, and now these smaller Twining Fringe Lilies are growing in different places - always interesting when I find something new.
The steady rain over the past 3 years or so has led to the violets spreading into beds everywhere. These are Ivy-leafed Violets.

The thing I like about moss and lichen is what you see up close - instead of a green mass, it's all these tiny little plants.
Harder to see here but all the same ...
White caladenia - the first of the orchids out.
Creeping Bossiaea - always bright, and everywhere at the moment.
