Wet weather and a slug

Unfortunately the last two work days have been cancelled due to wet weather. One positive from this is that the vegetation is thriving and showing good recovery from the drought. Even the Coral Fern which had died right back last year is showing new growth at last.

Also the slugs like the wet weather and Jan recently spotted an unusual one and had it identified on iNaturalist as Cystopelta cf. astra or Snowy Mountains Humpback Snail. Apparently it hadn’t been reported from this area before.

Jan also recently spotted a new addition to the plant list, Caesia parviflora ar. parviflora
