Yellow


Hooray, my job arrangements have changed as of today. I expect to have more time working from home and hence some time to walk my beloved bush paths again.

For the theme day I have chosen a banksia. These are in are in flower in the forest at this time of year. I can't wait to get out to see them.

  1. Ah, banksias - beautiful plants. Once had a huge banksia serrata outside my kitchen, but it became a danger as it was lifting the path and under the slab, so we reluctantly had to remove it. I never have planted somethign to replace it, so now I think I'll have to get a smaller banksia to fill the gap. It used to attract lots of parrots.

  10. Enjoy enjoy enjoy! Banksias were one of the first flowers I fell in love with on moving across the Tasman. We have the 'old man' variety in our garden - not so vibrant but oh so interesting.
