Winter is a wonderful time to be in Margaret River. There are so many lovely sights to enjoy. Although a little chilly at this time of the year I think it is still a great area to visit in the cooler months. Everywhere is lush and green and with the promise of spring and the wildflower season just around the corner it is well worth a trip south.
Most of the the vines have now been pruned ready for the next florish of leaves and grapes.
Large mobs of kangaroo are enjoying the lovely green grass.
Fungi is growing on the forest floor.
Arum lilies and freesias are in bloom in the paddocks. I think both are declared noxious weeds in this region.
The river is flowing into the ocean.
The dampness on the walk trails highlights the smells of the forest.
Early morning fog is a regular site.
The deer at the Venison Farm are looking healthy.
As are the dairy cows and sheep with their lambs.
There have been some very pretty sunrises, sunsets and rainbows.
In fact, unlike much of WA where the seasons are not that distinctive; I mean short autumns and springs, it is lovely that we get to enjoy all four seasons down here.
