Walked in Woy Woy today. Went down to Umina, in amongst the slow overgrown creeks behind the beach. It was a hot sticky walk. Hardly any breeze and the mercury climbing up to 32 (90 Farenheit). I plodded along under my hat sniffing at other people's gardens as the clouds slowly closed in again.
Jasmine climber on someon's front gate. When the sun hits the flowers the scent of jasmine hangs heavy over the Peninsula. Brisbane Avenue Umina.
Beautiful soft trumpet-like flowers. They fall and make a purple carpet under the tree. When the leaves come jacarandas make good shade.
Iris or something by the footpath. Pretty sure it's a native.
Heard the kookaburras as I was walking past this patch of bush (wild forest). Ettalong Creek Wetland Reserve Mount Ettalong Road Umina. From Ocean Beach Road follow the traffic down Sydney Avenue and Hobart Avenue to Mount Ettalong Road.
