November in Canberra (Australia) – Paint the town rainbow.
Red and yellow and pink and green
Purple and orange and blue
If only we could wrap a rainbow up in a bow? We can. My gift to you.
Kangaroo Grass (Themeda triandra)
Let’s look at each colour individually (well, sort of), starting with red.
Shades of pink.
Can you see my clumping redanther wallaby grass? To the left of the first photo.
Happy birthday to the marmalade mouse.
And finally, I picked this for you.
Apologies for the delay in posting my November wrap up. I ran out of data. In Canberra, we had a hot, wet and windy November. It made mosaicing difficult. However, I am pleased to report that on this very day, I stuck down my last piece of tile on my ice maiden. Now comes the hard part – the grouting. Groan. You can wait until next month to see that, can’t you? Or maybe at the end of January because no-one will be around in December? Just kidding.
The situation in Australia as far as community transmission of Covid goes, is very positive. There is currently a small outbreak in the state of South Australia. Our friends in Victoria after much hard work (social distancing and staying at home) have not had another case in their state for over a month. We may have other cases as Australians return home and hence there is always a risk that the virus will escape to the community. It is a risk we have to take, provided we continue with appropriate mitigation measures. I know the situation in other countries is very different. I am thinking of you all and hope that you stay safe. Look after yourself and others. Be kind and be careful.
