Jordan: Lee lives on 600 acres of Australian bush. A creek runs through the bush. I asked her what this landscape looks and smells like…
Guest Post by Lee Cleland in Australia
Lee: The vegetation is fairly thick and in what we would term a natural bush state. The area has Majestic eucalypts, river she-oaks, red grevilleas, tangling vines and strappy daniellas; a type of reed. Nothing has large blooms – everything here is very subtle and subdued. That all changes when the eucalypts flower in massed profusion – depending on the species, the perfume hangs upon the air and the bees create harmonics like you have never heard before.

Hoping for a sound byte sometime of the bee harmonics.
Creed and creek.
Creed is the man to reproduce this fragrance, culminating in a barbie of lamb chops grilled over gum wood. I can smell and taste it already, accompanied by an apian rhapsody.
Yum to that. Are you listening Daisy? This interface is better than Google Nose; I smell gum trees and BBQ too.
I love the kelpie. What a beauty! Look at those eyes.
Beauty in the bush.
Thank you all for you comments/commentary. No eucalypt flora at present – it’s winter here – very few bees and sorry guys no lamb! This is cattle country around here 🙂
Yes, Flair is a beauty and also intelligent. I’m still not sure who is training who – maybe that’s her being really, really smart……..
What a beaut companion. Keep warm Lee. Thank you for sharing this glimpse of Australian bush life in words and images.
