Way back on mothers day, hubby and I decided to go for a walk in the afternoon to a bushland reserve we've not visited before called Glenfern Valley Bushlands. It's very close to where we live and we spent a lovely couple of hours wandering around. The link gives a far better explanation than I can, good background and history about this lovely spot. Here are some photos from our walk.
|Love these metal cut out sculptures.|
|A newly created pond to encourage frogs and other wildlife.|
|Walking down the hill toward Ferny Creek.|
|Ferny Creek. This creek actually runs down the end of the lane way opposite our house but we are about 4 kilometres further up the hill.|
|This part of the bushland was way down the hill and near the creek. Loving these old gum trees and the bark that is coming off in layers.|
|Looking toward farmland nearby the bushlands.|
We've driven past these bushlands many time. I've always wanted to explore them and now I have.
We've had some lovely autumn colour in recent weeks. These photos were taken in my neighbourhood while walking Sophie.
The last few weeks I've spent many hours in the garden pruning, weeding and planting more vegetables. The vegetables I planted back in April are doing quite well apart from the slug and white butterfly damage. Some of the slugs died in an alcoholic haze of home brew beer that had seen better days.

|Hoping this beetroot will be made into relish and pickles with some left over to bake.|
|After reading today how you should sow carrots and under what conditions, I'm surprised these are actually growing. It remains to be seen in what shape they've grown into when harvested.|
|Looking down our driveway. In the foreground is Pak Choy which is nearly ready to harvest and will be good in stir fries.|
|The last autumn rose.|
|The first camellia.|
|The first azalea.|

Well this has been a marathon post. I'll try not to leave it so long next time.
