The peak of the flowering season has past and the drive-snap crowd has departed, but for observant nature lover there is beauty in post-flowering new plant growth. Proteaceae are particularly intriguing with a myriad of shapes and colours and woolly or hairy growth. These plants are superbly adapted to thrive in the lateritic soils that they create.
I am so lucky to be able to observe the annual cycle of life- death- rebirth of the plants and animals in Foxes Lair. It provides a reality check in the increasingly chaotic outside world.
