The West Winds Have Begun

Today I was influenced for the first time by the winds coming from the West in the late afternoon. This usually indicates that the build up to the wet season is coming.
It seemed a lot hotter with much more humidity. Soon the sky will be filled with the only mountains we ever see here.

In the dry season
just about every seed is utilized by some bird.
These gum tree seed pods hardly look appetizing, more like beak conditioners.

Coming full season the Kapok seed pods
are just about ready to take off for parts unknown.

We do have a few hills around the Darwin & Lee Point area and it seems a shame that so much erosion is allowed to occur. If the land is unsuitable for commercial development it seems that it is simply allowed to wash away.
