Hillside walk, 04 December 2013

In response to the rain of the past few weeks, green grass is beginning to appear in virtually every shaded spot. The fuchsia-flowered gooseberry (Ribes speciosum) is getting green leaves, whereas a week ago it was just a prickly skeleton.

But no new native flowers to report this week.
