Spring is Springing

Palm Lily Budding
Spring continues to make itself felt. Various frogs and the infamous toad are in the mood for courting. The green tree frog and the striped marsh frog both have been seen, albeit briefly, and the one that says pock, pock, pock, pock is at it all night long.

The Cane Toad, I suspect, is the one that chirrs. I'll have to charge up my torch and go hunting.

Native trees and plants are budding. This palm lilly has extended out a long stem which will soon carry its flowers. This in fact is last year's photo, though it is happening this year too.

But, would you believe, it's been raining so much I haven't had the chance to take photos, juggling the umbrella and camera has been tried and found wanting. So it looks like we're going into another La Nina summer. We have already accrued the same equivalent rain for the date, as last year when we ended up having more than two metres worth.
