Yes :) Winter is just fighting back a little, but mostly Spring.
The birds are back in force too, such a beautiful time of year.
Autumn for you ... equally beautiful, isn't it, in its own way.

Last weekend I drove over to check these out, thinking they'd be almost finished blooming; instead I saw at least 100 in bud and not one bloom. I'd intended returning this next weekend, but am not up to it.

Many in the open had been eaten off (snails perhaps, certainly rabbits and maybe kangaroos) but the ones in the spinifex were all looking safe. :)
I'm really sorry to have missed them there as they offered a good chance to photograph their pollinators.
Next year, perhaps.
