Let's go bush l ..



As you can see it's getting a little parched out in the Australian bush right now.. temps in the top 30C will do that. With these few shots I wanted to show that despite the weather, we're a tough bunch :) adapt the clothing, jump on the bike and off we go! It's not all bad, I'll show you tomorrow a little of what goes on around the lake, the Aussie bush is quite attractive in it's own unique way..


There's one thing for sure, no matter how hot and dry the bush is.. if Aimee is there, so is colour :) You'll have to check out her blog here to see what she was getting down and macro about! Once again the world is in shock at the horror that has occurred in Paris, I was hoping for better things this year, sometimes it's hard to keep optimistic for the future. Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  1. I wonder what scary Aussie bug Aimee has found! Oh, and we got a layer of snow today for some reason.

  2. I just saw what she had over at her blog! It certainly does look hot there. We're very much the opposite here, and getting colder.

    I saw the news from Paris when I got in earlier. Stunning to say the least.

  5. Looks like she's off to a great start in the world of blogging. And for once, I suppose I'm happy not to be in Paris.

  6. Ah, yes! I could enjoy some warm weather -- although, before I whine about that, we do have blue skies today! Love the pic of Aimee!! It does look as though she's having great fun with the camera and I do relate!! Sad news from Paris, hope the violence and killing stops soon!! Have a good week, Grace!

  7. It is always nice to see folks out enjoying the weather and outdoors. This looks like a nice area to do both. Here's to a Happy New Year for us all!

  8. Amazing photos - I can feel the heat over here in the UK where it's very, very chilly! Whilst I do love winter I can't wait to feel the summer breeze again - and you've introduced me to another amazing blog, so thank you too! - Tasha

  10. It's a real tragedy what happened in Paris. Luckily it seems that the world is a better place in your corner of it.

  11. Top 30°C? In this case I keep our winter, but it would be very nice with a slightly cooler weather...

  12. It is extremely cold here today but people are still out on bikes and walking dogs. We all make do, Grace.

  13. So that's how she got the close up of the insect! Our weather is simply perfect right at this moment about 24c. I'm not looking forward to those hot, hot days to come in just a few short months. But, like you, we adapt! Adapting to the cold is another matter altogether.

  14. I'm used to the heat and I would love to explore the bush as these others are doing!

  15. The bush may be dry but it is still a magical landscape. I love the wide variety of australian landscapes - from dusky (or is that dusty?) tones to bright sea blues. It's all wonderful.

  16. I'm not in a hurry to get heat back ..

    Congras for aimée's blog!

    I'm under hock, I was a big fan of one of the victims in Paris since years, and the attack left me in tears .

  17. Hello Gracie, I love your photos, thank you for sharing them. I'm blogging about my first visit to Australia, my youngest daughter lives in Fremantle. I'm feeling a bit homesick, ever since my first visit i've thought of Oz as my second home x

  18. The world will always be dangerous. That does not mean you should stop taking great pics.

  19. It does look hot there! I love Aimee's hair and her blog too.

  20. When I read about your temperatures I must say,
    that I prefer it here right now. You can dress against
    the cold but you can't do that against heat :))
    Love her hair colour :D

  24. Just when I was getting used to the dry photos of the parched bush . . . Bam! There is Aimee's brilliant red hair.

    The Paris murders are so said. Everywhere!

  25. 30! -18 here tonight. I don't know which is worse.

  26. Looks like everyone is enjoying summer. All of a sudden we have a bit of winter. Temperatures here dropped 6 - 7C here last night so today we had 17 C and sunny rather than the 30C and 30C+ over the week end.

  27. I had a weeks holiday in the bush outside Bendigo in a horse drawn caravan years ago. The parched grass in your photos remind of that holiday. The horse travelled at a leisurely pace and as we sat up front with the reigns in easy conversation we developed an appreciation of the varied colours of gold which flood our dry landscape.

  28. They are tough souls braving the heat but they seem to keep cool by wearing very little. The bush is looking crispy but beautiful in its own way. Aimee's dragon flies are great.

  29. Dreadful stuff going on in the world. Love Aimees blog.

  30. Ja dit baart iedereen grote zorgen ,hoe gaan we hier verder mee. maar jij laat wel hele mooie momenten zien.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yes it's definitely getting parched in SA as well but as you say Grace we're a tough mob and learnt to adapt & get on with life. Now I'm going to click over to Aimee's Blog and find out what little treasure she has captured.

  32. You are a tough one to brave the heat an so are others I see. Funny your daughter has her own blog as well. It is catching isn't it, I once had hubby SC to make his own after he was always looking at my blog :)

  33. These images remend me of the archness of August, not today though. -20°F here today.

    ReplyDelete
  34. The temperature difference between there and here is hard to imagine! Thee Arctic has sent us a Polar Bear Express! Yes, Aimee brightens up any place she goes, I'm sure. And I saw what she was taking a photo of, but I can keep a secret.

  35. Beautifully composed and shot!!

  36. I don't know if I would be walking in the bush with the temperature we've been having lately...
    Very sad that another terrorist attack has happened!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh, my, Grace, yes, that is hot to walk the dog!
    Paris... awful. We´re so near, too, in many ways. I do not want to get political, just saying it´s all wrong, unfair and cruel.

  38. It is "medicine" to see summer images, sitting here up in the north.
    The police via radio and the news, have told us to keep indoors later today. We will have strong winds.... stronger than just a storm this weekend.
