We live on 5 acres and most of the block is still natural bush. We had not ventured down the back for at least 12 months, so went for a bit of a walk today. The result of the dry weather is very evident, Lots of young trees and bushes have died and the area is much easier to navigate.The really hardy bush grass continues to thrive The rocks have less moss on them as more sun is now getting through the canopy of the trees. We were very surprised to see the staghorn fern on the side of this rock.
It was approx. 3pm and the sun was only just touching the top fronds, so I doubt it gets any other sun all day. Plus it obviously catches any moisture that runs down the rock, so it has a good chance of surviving.
