Well, I have just realised that I am getting close to 200 posts so I think I should have a giveaway. This will be post 193 and all comments from now till I reach 200 will go into the hat, probably for a glasses case and some other goodies - I haven't really decided yet.
Blogger has changed the way we load photos again, I suppose it is an improvement - but it has taken me ages to get these photos up as I was not sure what I was trying to do..........grrrrrr. I am not sure I like change much any more, takes too long to work it out.
These yellow everlasting daisies are making a lovely show at the front entrance of the Botanic Gardens just now. When we were first married we used to see them along the sides of the roads all round the district, but I haven't seen them growing wild for years now. I think the sides of the roads have been poisoned to keep the grass down, but of course, everything else is poisoned too.
This is syzygium australe with a lovely show of fluffy white flowers. Later it should be covered in red berries and one of our volunteers with be busy making jam, well she will if she can beat the birds. they love the berries too.
These next photos are of some more padfolios I have made lately. Two of them are from paper napkins and make such a lovely bright show.
I had hoped to spend the weekend in the garden, but the rain has put a stop to that. September is supposed to be the driest month of the year up here, but definitely not this year. We had a deluge of 200 mm on Monday, then drizzle for most of the rest of the week, before the rain really set in again today, 80 mm so far and it is only 4.30 pm. I think I can hear the weeds growing. I have a huge crop of oxalis which has sprung up, it has a very pretty pink flower, but I would much rather be rid of the wretched stuff.
