Many of the mallee trees are in bud and some are flowering so it's going to be a wonderful spring I think. It was good to see some of the sandy ground covered in lichen and moss 'just like it orta be', but sad to see the damage that can be done by vehicles. Even one set of tyre tracks can destroy lichens that have taken years to grow on the surface.

And even though it's June I managed to find several small shrubs in flower. Hopefully that's a sign that I'll find more as we move further north.
