This Paeonia mascula is a real fighter. Two years ago its leaf bud was chewed off at ground level by a possum but the plant mustered another bud. Last year two thirds of its only leaf bud was chewed off and I thought the plant was doomed. The remaining third of the bud then developed truncated leaves. This year I put a little cage over the buds and the plant has produced two flowers #paeoniamascula#paeonia#peony#speciespeony#blackheathnsw#bluemountainsgardens#bluemountains
Majestic ride to Lithgow and back via The Bells Line of Road with the Ogilvy Crew.
Magpies chasing and swooping us was about as dramatic as it got (apart from the completely gorgeous views). Perfect ride!!
Just amazing views!
... that dirty butt tho... haha, I walked back to the city without noticing that and not until a woman looked at my butt disturbingly long I realized how sandy it actually was. •
It’s been awhile but I got out on a solo nude bushwalk today, in all I walked about 10km starting at my old lunchtime skinny dipping spot near where it meets the river.
It was sad to see more graffiti on the big rock in the creek opposite my old sunbake spot 😰
I then walked upstream and visited the landslide cave and then on to my other skinny dipping spot in the gorge near the National Park and then walked back over the hill and back to my car... I was naked for about half of that and the only people I saw were on the lookout above my lunch break sunbake spot and I could see them zooming in on me with their phones (I have binoculars) trying to see if I was really naked 😂 #nude#hiking#bushwalking # #naturist#nudist#bluemountains#australia
