Research and School Holidays.

School holiday time is drawing to a close. This holidays I tried to combine work and keeping my very active five year old son busy and interested.

Mt Majura

We packed a picnic, binoculars, camera, sketchbook and set out by mid morning. Canberra in the spring is such a beautiful time of year to get outdoors. Mt Majura is one of the many nature parks in the bush capital.

We made it to the top, stopping along the way to photograph flowers, draw dinosaurs, observe shingle back lizards and do a spot of rock hoping.

Australian National Botanic Gardens

Another day another picnic.

So many species flowering this time of year. We had a great day, we searched in vain for dinosaurs in the rainforest section but we did find some other replites, birds and even a Monotreme.
