Adelaide trip Vegetation

We have just done a trip to Adelaide. There won't be a text report on the trip but there are a few interesting images on this page and the next.

The first image shows the green-ness of the Adelaide Hills. This area is the Bremer Range which is usually brown and horrible, being in the rain shadow of Mt Lofty.This second shot is even more amazing as it was in the middle of the Hay Plains which is usually a desert, by any sensible definition thereof.

The following 4 images are from Monarto Conservation Park and show a couple of variations on the themes of 1) eucalyptus and 2) Sundew (Drosera?). (It might be a good idea for those interested to click on the images to see them in a larger size.)
