this icy blast polar provocation snow bunny flurries — but wait...a sunny bench too late to tan? just killin it
Image: Lake Illawarra this morning (The eagle-eyed will notice my old collie in the background still photo-bombing the art.)
Day 6 of European Settler winter here in Australia; the First Nations season on Dharawal land is Burrugin. This is the time when the male Burrugin (echidnas) form lines of up to ten as they follow the female through the woodlands in an effort to wear her down and mate with her. It is also the time when the Burringoa (Forest Red Gum – Eucalyptus tereticornis) starts to produce flowers.
And here’s some sunny music from 1951 from Ahmad Jamal with Poinciana (start with the title track). (YouTubers – sorry, could only find title track – but this is lovely too)
