A photo diary of the Victorian bush - specifically the area described as Herb-rich Foothill Forest. We are about 500 metres above sea level. I am not an expert, I'm an interested conservational owner.

New flowers out and an echidna
It's always interesting to discover something new. Even after ten years, I can still find plants I haven't noticed before (or perhaps a bird has brought in seeds?)
It took me a while to identify this but it turns out to be an Appleberry.
At this time of year these Milkmaids appear. Thanks to reasonable rain, there are dozens of them.
Often when there is a rustle in the bracken, you can never see what it is (if it's a roo, it will bolt away at high speed). This time it was an echidna, trying very hard to "disappear".
Twining Fringe Lilies. Won't be long before the common fringe lilies (my favourites) will start blooming.
