Taking time out from stitching

Went for a walk in Aldinga Scrub on Sunday. It was lovely and sunny, and quite mild (not like today which has been sunny also, but very cold). Met a Friend of the Scrub who had just seen 3 echinas in a train, but of course we weren't so lucky. There were some birds about, but it was amazingly quiet. You can see rare coral lichen and the wattles are starting to bloom. I love the shapes of the gums - proving that any wiggly way you might draw them would be true to life.
Great contrast too with this old yacca base.

Fabulous view along the coast from the lookout on the edge of the Scrub too. Well worth a visit.
I'm disappointed with the colour in these (and other recent) pictures - think the time for a new camera is approaching...

  1. Hi Raelene
    I'm pleased you enjoyed your scrub stroll. I just found your blog link on the SA quilters guild website, so I had a look. Love your echidnas!
