Day Three of the 7-Day Nature Challenge (nominated by lovely Laura from The View From My Window)
For today’s challenge I travelled far and wide…kidding! I drove just over 6 kilometres to the Ravens Street Reserve – 12 kilometres from Brisbane’s Central Business District it.
Walking into the reserve I discover an abundance of grass trees or Xanthorrhoea, a plant uniquely Australian, growing through the bush and gullies.
The two grass trees in the distance add an eerie mood to this photograph. Could they be tree spirits or guardians of the forest? Everything around us is alive (except for plastic, get rid of plastics) and much is invisible to the naked eye 🙂
I couldn’t pass this tree without first taking a photograph of its lemon yellow banksia flowers. This tree was situated beside the children’s playground and the Downfall Creek Bushland Centre.
Doing this challenge has opened my eyes even further to what exists close by 🙂
