Natures signs of change

One of the joys of driving to Darwin from Alice is the opportunity to visit Nanna and Pop at Noonamah, in the rural area.  After a 1500km trip this final stop symbolises the end of a safe journey.  It is a trip where you can see the landscape change from semi-arid desert to tropical. 

Pop was telling me how they have had a cold dry season, and how a certain type of tree cannot live in the temperatures they received this year.  This species simply died.  He told me how a tree not far from his house started flowering, then stopped, then flowered some time after.

On the third day I am here the news reported 40+ temperatures in Alice Springs – the earliest 40+ since records were created, some two weeks before the previuos record.  These observations pale in comparison to some of the more impactful changes occuring around the world, but they demonstrate how every person is now affected.
