What fantastic weather today
Murph the swamp wallaby enjoying some sunshine in the garden this afternoon after thunderstorms in the morning dropped over 30 mm of rain in the space of an hour or so.
The former APM ( Australian Paper Manufacturers ) forest access track on Dee Road Millgrove now part of the Yarra Ranges National Park
Deep in the forest if you follow this track along and then it becomes indistinct for a while is a hut called Hikers Hut ( abandoned for decades ) as well as two dumped cars that must have been driven along the road, when it was driveable decades ago.
Bob the Lyrebird scratching around the garden this morning, then checking out the plants and making a run for it.
