Even though it’s winter here in the Southern Hemipshere, things on our bit of coast are incredibly green. In addition to all the gorgeous driftwood the beach furnishes, there’s a lovely array of plant life on, or near, the beach.
I love the unfamiliar trees that line the beach.
I especially love the Norfolk Pines, with their up-curved branches and exaggerated silhouettes.
Succulents fare really well here — these grass-like ones cover many of the sand dunes. I have no clue what they are!

What are you exploring this weekend?
