When your Mum comes to visit, it’s time for a day trip to the breathtaking Black Spur Drive near Fernshaw Victoria. The scale of these trees and the richness of the rainforest is hard to capture. Definitely worth the drive! #blackspurdrive
I love to see native Australian trees and plants in our homes and gardens like this beautiful young Australian red box (Eucalyptus Polyanthemos) gumtree found in Northcote. #northcote #redbox
