October 2017 – Nyoongar season of Kambarang

22nd – Watercress in the waterways is flowering abundantly. Vine Moth are active around the grape vines.

24th – Tiny, tiny parasitic wasps observed on the Walking Stick Cabbage that is in flower. I didn’t check it for caterpillars, but this is usually a sign that they are about. A separate post on this is here.

25th – The Bottlebrush are flowering and White-tailed Black Cockatoos are making random raids on small trees in and around backyards.

28th – Wild, wild winds. Scattered but light showers. Enough to make rainbows!

Some Controlled burning-off occurring around the place this month in preparation for summer.

I’m looking at putting my seasonal observations into more of a diary format for each month so I can look back at the records a little easier.

About Petit Paradis

I am on a journey with my family to transition as closely as practicable to a state of self-reliance in suburbia. I practice permaculture principles in our house, garden and community. We are on the southern coast of Western Australia. To our north is the rest of the world. To the south, Antarctica.
