I must confess to feeling fairly uninspired this week. The theme was America, or if you’re from elsewhere, your own country. Now, I love Australia, but I wouldn’t call myself patriotic, so I wasn’t about to go out and snap images of a flag I don’t agree with. The southern cross has sadly been twisted into an racist White Australia symbol and the Union Jack? Don’t even get me started…
So. The thing I like about Australia most? The flora. I love plants and I love bush walking, or hiking as some may call it. I didn’t get a chance to go to the bush this week though so I had to take photos of what I had on hand. I have lots of woody fruits around the house, they’ve all dropped their seeds and one day when I live in the county I’ll sow the seeds and hope for some beautiful trees! The first one is an Eucalyptus and the other two are Hakeas.
And maybe the greatest thing to come out of Australia, a Macadamia! Yum! The tastiness is firmly hidden inside.
I understand that if you don’t already love plants this is probably a little boring! Not to mention brown… So now a little colour. Although this is a bit of a stretch on the theme, I love that all these fruit and vegies are grown locally, organic, and are delivered to my door!
