First of the greenhoods in Ku-ring Gai Chase NP : March 15 2023


Woke during the night dreaming I had dropped a porcelain hand basin on my toe. Had not but got a sore big toe. Every time I turned it hurt. How am I going to do 5,000 steps today? Sun was out

King parrot bought his lady down to enjoy the sun. Only a few of the pairs share food.

Googled natural remedies for gout - pain is very localised. Step one - heaps of water. Drank a few bottles and could feel the pain ease off a little

Made my way out to Terrey Hills side of Ku-ring Gai Chase NP to look for autumn orchids - strapped on the boots and will walk whatever it takes

NSW coral heath flower still popping out

Did find a small nodding greenhood in a known spot on the edge of the track.

Spotting lesson - rosette of leaves on the ground and a spike with a flash of colour on top.

Sadly the close up photo is out of focus - pterostylis hispidula - leech action got to me

A few more rosettes above the track

Surprised this lizard on the track - it stopped

And allowed me to get a side on photo

Tear drop flowers - my name - set the photo up to focus on the lower flower

Walked a big loop off track looking for autumn orchids - too much leaf litter - disappointing season ahead

Mushroom farm. We know what the horse had eaten - disappointing seeing horse poo on a "no horse riding track"

Spent a bit of time off track in a different spot - acianthus or corysanthes leaves. Both grow here

Did I mention leeches?

Spider grevillea on the way back.

Got the shopping done. We have a friend coming to stay to help her through saying farewell to her dog of 15 years. Got to get some nice stuff going.

Vale JoJo - great dog who we have looked after quite a bit

Dinner prep was a bit tricky as my wife was out for drinks with a flexible return time. Decided to do a white fish dish Thai style. Quick cook once prep is done

Sauce prep: lemon grass, Vietnamese mint (or coriander), ginger, garlic, chilli (2 or 3), lime juice (1 or 2), fish sauce, a little honey and a little water. Blitz that and then simmer it while fish cooks. Fish was floured and rhen deep fried.

Served with rice and steamed bok choy. Fish could as well been cooked without flour in butter. 2 limes was too much - maybe a bit more honey.

Lemon grass and mint came from the garden

Trade action: Assigned on YOU sold puts. Markets are ugly - staying away.

Disappointed to get so close to 10,000 steps - toe did hold me back BUT it did respond to hydrating well
