Autumn in a grassland

Not many people venture out into grasslands in the autumn unless they are passionate about grasslands. I like to check them out whenever I get a chance and this time of year it is to see if they have been burnt, or to look at when the next burn should be organised. About a 1km section of Cattle Station Hill Road in Hepburn Shire has a good patch of grassland on both sides. The roadsides are wide and regularly burnt. At this time of year the kangaroo grass is obvious with an orange hue. Patches of common everlasting are also prominent with the silver foliage.
