It’s hayfever season here. Luckily I no longer suffer. Don’t know how that happened, but thankfully I am no longer a sneezy red-eyed bleary mess when the flowers come out.
And are they out!
In masses. We drove out to the Coal Seam today, and if you love wildflowers you will love this area this time of year. Mullewa has some fantastic displays too. Flowers for as far as you can see. Yellow here, pink and white on the other side.
This is just a beautiful land. How grateful I am to be living in such a place.
The bees are pretty content too.
We had such a lovely day, driving out to the countryside, stopping to take photos and enjoy the sunshine. I got my first look at the wind turbines at Walkaway, (I know I know.. we don’t go out that way often) and the kids had a chance to run around. No playstation… who would have thought you could have so much fun climbing the rocks and exploring the riverbeds.
Even the tiniest of flowers are so beautiful.
The rain held off even though Pop said it was forecast, and we only got a few intermittant showers on the drive home. Enough to make the dust really stick to the cars.
The views are amazing, everything is so colourful, a stark contrast to our Summer months.
You wont catch me out here in the heat of Summer. I’m more likely to be sitting in the airconditioning somewhere.
It’s a bit of an effort to get going so early (for us) on a Sunday morning, to make the decision for a family outing, but so worth it. We swapped passengers there and back, and it was a nice chance to hang out somewhere different. The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves. especially when the King introduced them to the Sandycow Beetle. He used to have them as pets when he was a kid. Sounds a bit deprived if you ask me.
My boys quickly grew to love this little beetle, taking turns with holding him/her. I however, did not fight for the right to hold the bug. Nope. Not me.
Mum took off down river for a wander, so I didn’t get a snap with her and the kids, but Miss L kindly took one of our lot. Boy they are getting big now.
We made it to the Walkaway Tavern in the nick of time for lunch, and then it was homeward bound. Didn’t get any washing done, but it was a lovely day.
