Lunar New Year – First Post

I’ve been pondering doing this for a while. Finally doing it. And what is ‘it’? I’m not exactly sure yet, but for now, it seems to be a kind of diary. A way of documenting and recording the small things I notice around me. Small, but important things. Like what plants are in flower or fruit, what bird species are around, what insects. I hope it will help me become more observant, and that it will be something I can refer to in future turnings of the seasons. Our world is in such a state of flux, our climate patterns are changing, and so are our ecologies in response to this. I am not a scientist, not a botanist or zoologist. I’m just an ordinary person who loves my home. I figure by paying closer attention to it, and recording what I notice, I may be able to assist or participate somehow in the process of resilience-making that we are all embarked upon now.

    • 🙂 yes, it’s a kind of quandong called ‘Eleocarpus Obovartus’ (i think!) or ‘Hard Quandong’ or ‘Blueberry Ash’. Fruiting very abundantly this year. I am going to see if its seeds are bead make-able! Do you live in cassowary country, Sarah?
