A little while ago a friend from overseas asked me if I’d take photos of some native Australian flora & post them on my blog. That ‘little while ago’ request was actually made back in February. Oooops. Finally took some pics this week. There’s over 20,000 different types of native plants in Australia & the following three are very common around my area.
Golden Wattle (Floral Emblem of Australia)
Crimson Bottle Brush
Banksia (with partly visible ladybug)
This was to be my tag post. But I chickened out. As is usual with me & tags. I’m really not very good at them. I would like to at least follow through on part of the tag, and that being to link back to my tagger, Sandra of Bubble Babble. Sandra’s blog is one that I regularly visit because I always enjoy her well written, poignant and often thought provoking posts. Thanks Sandra! I did go so far as answering all of the tag questions, so Sandra if you are interested in reading them I’d be happy to send them your way. Seeing as you tagged me. And seeing as I’ve written them. And saved them. Just in case. So let me know. They’ll make great bed-time reading if you’re the type to have difficulty getting to sleep. They’ll work a treat!
I wanted to share this photo I found on Flickr recently because it blew me away when I saw it.

Marco creates magical lego compositions, quite often of movie scenes & famous artworks and then artfully photographs them. If you’ve seen the film Casablanca you will no doubt recognise this scene. If you’ve not seen Casablanca, then may you enjoy this photo simply for the masterpiece it is. Thanks to Marco for granting me permission to post this photo on my blog. I’ve seen quite a lot of clever & amusing lego art photos in cyberland but Marco takes it to another level entirely. To view more from the amazing Marco visit his Flickr photostream, udronotto. Also, if you’ve not seen the film Casablanca you really really should.
