You always know when Christmas is on it’s way for all us over here in Australia the weather starts getting warmer and the beautiful blue skies are here to stay. The sun starts to rise earlier and set later letting us play longer in the daylight.
In Busselton we start to see a little bit more christmas colour in the country side. When you go for a walk in the bush land nature has already started trimming the trees with tinsel. You can’t walk far without running into a silver threaded spider web with an amazing coloured decoration hanging from it in the form of a living christmas spider. The colour ranges from yellow , white and black to red or orange in places through out the south west. They may be a bit creepy up close and can have a bit of a painful bite on them but I associate their arrival with natures way of telling us Christmas is on its way.
The tree’s also put on a display with the Australian Christmas Trees all flowering from December. Showing yellow to orange flowers throughout the green foliage. Giving the landscape some more colour while the heat is turning the grass in the paddocks brown.
The healing power of nature can be found at all times of year and the beauty of the changing seasons brings new and different joys with each passing day.
Enjoy the season of Christmas and make sure you take the time to notice how nature is showing her colour for you.
Season’s Greetings xxx
