Spring Has Finally Sprung!

It has been a while since I’ve posted on this blog…. its been a long dark cold winter and I have enjoyed reading blogs more than writing them. We had our wettest winter in like 30 years here in Perth, including flooding which I had never seen in my life! I had scheduled some hikes with friends during the winter (since winter in Perth is usually a good time to hike) but every time we set a date the day would be a torrential stormy downpour!

Finally Spring has arrived, and on the first warm sunny weekend day we had I took Miss A for a family friendly hike to Lesmurdie Falls. The falls are located only a half hour from the city, and is probably Perths most well known and popular place to experience a bit of nature with city views in the distance. With all the rain we did have the falls were gushing and the wildflowers were blooming! It was a perfect way to spend the morning with my mini-me!

    Good to see you back and your “little” one seems to be running up the trail. We also had the wettest summer in 67 years.

    Gorgeous flowers and beautiful scenery, and look at your “baby” – she’s grown so much! I can’t wait to see those wildflowers in person one day. Wonderful pictures. Sounds like you’ll be glad to get more walking done after that long, very wet winter! 😀

    It looks like you picked the perfect day to go hiking. I mean, look at those colorful blooms and glorious blue skies! Lesmurdie Falls looks like a nice place to be out in nature when you happen to be in Perth — I will definitely remember this. Glad to see you back, Anna.

    Look at that tall, leggy girl! I still think of her as being 5 years old. How wonderful to emerge into the warm, bright spring and share it with your daughter!

      Thanks Lexi! My little girl is growing up! It makes me a bit sad but also excited as she Is now old enough to start doing some cool stuff with her mum!

  9. What a lovely waterfall at the end! I always find hikes that finish in waterfalls to be so rewarding. Enjoy your beautiful spring days.
