... there is a season, turn, turn, turn.
I know, a retro song again. Seems I just can't help myself ;)
This morning, I was thinking about the change of seasons. Then, I thought of the above titled song by The Byrds, which was also featured in the movie Forrest Gump - the scene where Jenny says goodbye to Forrest, then boards the bus back to California.
And, now it won't get out of my head.
So, if you remember, or know of, this song and hum it once, you'll have an earworm for the rest of the day. Sorry in advance, folks, heh heh.
While autumn is dialling down the temperature in the Northern Hemisphere, and beginning to dazzle with her beautiful brazen golden-red palette, spring has been delighting us down south with her cheery blooms, sweet scents and lovely lime leafage.
It stays cooler for a little longer here on the mountain.
There are still more grey days than sunny. And some of winter’s fading blooms remain to keep company with the newcomers… just for a little while longer.
From wonderful Waratahs and pretty Proteas to jaunty Jonquils, here is a selection of pics that I’ve snapped on our weekend walks over the past few weeks.

You can always tell the warmer weather is coming when these guys stealthily creep out from their darkened, dusty abodes.
This long-legged lovely spans about 3 inches wide.
I usually leave them alone when they stay above eye-level inside. But, once they come down below that, it’s outside they go. Gently and safely unharmed. For, they have an important role to play in this world.
I just think they have a bigger range of snacks to choose from outside – that’s what I tell them anyway :)
Years ago, after washing my face one morning, I blindly reached for my towel and patted my face dry.
The towel “wriggled” on my cheek, and as I pulled it away, I saw a large huntsman sitting on the towel – right where my face had been!
I don’t know who was more shocked - me or spidey. Poor thing. Luckily, he was
Haha! I can almost hear the collective, “eeeeeuw’s” all the way from here :)
Fascinated by this amazing web seen recently.
Not sure if it was built by a Funnel Web spider. I didn’t think they lived in Victoria.
Now that’s a spider I wouldn’t like to mess with.
And, here's Jack,
bringing in the kindling - one stick at a time.
Okay blue-boy, no more firewood for a while now, xx.
Well, I’ve taken you from songs to seasons to spiders and finally, silver-blue soldiers. What a mixed bag!
Have a wonderful, safe coming weekend everyone.
