This bay doesn’t look that special and, if I’m completely honest, when the tide’s out I prefer to be anywhere but here… because it smells funky. 

But Ralph’s Bay is home to a fish responsible for preventing a multimillion dollar development going ahead at the expense of its  survival. Spotted Handfish 1, Developers 0 - in that round.

hi Thy, good to see you out and about in our gorgeous State. Hope you stay safe out there the trucks and cars don’t slow down for all you little Tassie creatures

The ferns are protected from the worst of the weather under cover but I leave the maple out in the open. I love the moss that is thriving at its base

Have dug the chillies out of the tomato bed and brought them up into the fernery for #winter. Hopefully they will survive the frosts now.

Am visiting Darwin in the Northern Territory and have the pleasure of staying in a house owned by a Balinese couple. The suburban garden has been transformed into a tropical paradise. Clever planting of tall palms and frangipanis under planted with ferns and in every branch, bifurcation, and attached to every trunk at different heights are bromeliads and orchids

This Spring there has been so much rain in Tassie I thought that the Daffodils would suffer, but no thankfully there are a great variety of Daffodils still in bloom. Just as these are passing their best we can see the first blooms of the Blue bells

uncovertasmania asked: Hi Isabelle. Nice to see you again at Jenny's yesterday. Cheers Michelle.


Answer:

Hi Michelle, no wonder I couldn’t find you with UncoverTasmania. Love your photos. Hope soon they will include fish that were caught at a LRFF day out
