Springtime brings a whole new burst of colour to our National Parks, parks and gardens and home gardens, with wildflowers and tree blossoms bursting out in colourful flowers and heady scents. It also brings out the wildlife on the hunt for food, sometimes with spring babies in tow.
Today it continues to conserve arid land flora in its natural environment while educating visitors on how to use native plants in home gardens. Now especially with drought conditions affecting so much of the country and a hot and dry summer predicted it makes so much sense when you see how water wise we can be using these plants.
No matter how many stories I’ve had printed, it’s always a thrill to see another one in a magazine. I have a number of stories in the pipeline at the moment with a few different magazines, but they’re in the lap of the gods (or should I say editors) as to when they get printed. Happily I can say though, that the current edition of On The Road magazine (September / October) has a story I’ve written on Port Augusta, known as the crossroads of Australia and the gateway to the southern Flinders Ranges.
