No Ordinary Day

Happy National Eucalypt Day, everyone.  23 March is the national day for Australia’s iconic eucaplypt trees, of which there are around 900 species.  Eucalypts were known to have existed when Australia was still part of the super-continent Gondwana.  The oldest known eucaplypt fossil specimens (flowers, fruit and leaves) date back 52 millions years!

Art For Boldness Sake

Continuing the turtle theme (see my post of 13 March 2019), today I am sharing a photo of a mosaic I made a few years ago of a turtle (in abstract).  I love bold colours and, in winter, when my garden is devoid of colour, my colourful mosaics are sure to make me smile.

Selective Hearing

Here is my response to the Ragtag Daily PromptDiametric.

One of the things I really love about the Ragtag Daily Prompt is the contributions from all our participants.  One of my favourite contributors (I have many) is Lois from On Pets and Prisoners.  She always comes up with just the right quirky photo to illustrate the prompt.  Today, I feel the need to respond in kind.  So here is my fun photo too.
