Winter in the Bush

It was sunny today, albeit somewhat chilly. The ram pump had stopped working a few days ago, when it was raining hard. Today we went down to get it started again, and went for a bit of a wander.

 I love fungi - and there is always something different in our bush.
The inlet for the ram pump was blocked up again - it is at the top of a waterfall.
 
Looking down into the pool at the base of the waterfall.
New life for a dead punga - a great 'pot' for these ferns.
A tree still lives through the epiphytes attached to it before it fell.
Sooner or later the ram pump had to be flushed out and started again.
 Then back across the stream
and back to the house for a cuppa......
