They're off and running!

With the good rains and warm sunny weather in-between, the weeds are racing along - especially Freesia and Black Flag. Lachenalia are also starting to appear. John and I worked on Freesia today - we were planning to work at the southern end of the bushland, but never got there - too many Freesias along the way!
Came across this termite mound. I associate termite mounds with Australia's remote areas, and don't expect to see them in the Perth metropolitan area for some reason, even though termites are very commmon in the Perth metro area - and are a considerable problem when they start eating the wooden structure of people's houses. Here in the bushland termites play an important role in breaking down cellulose for re-use.
