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.
