A uniquely Australian anthology of short stories, visually, culturally and linguistically evocative of that country (and continent), the unsurprisingly named ‘Long and Short Australian Stories’ is incredibly readable and relatable, with the sort of easy-going narrative fluency that makes each story a thoroughly enchanting page-turner.

Though always from her perch on the Aussie shoreline, Sharp explores all the universal themes that define stories of romance and relationships: jealousy, ambition, empathy, love and self-actualization.

Backdrops include beaches, cottages and city apartments, the urban and the rural: a multifaceted scenic tour that enhances the feel of the various narratives… long and short. This is a book for fans of literary fiction and romance, but suitable also for a YA audience.

I’m so glad that these have become popular! In many of our local streets, these wonderful flowers are to be seen. Several well-advanced trees are growing in nearby nature strips. And don’t the Rainbow Lorikeets love them!

What unusual and  delightful flowers are these! And don’t the birds love them…

Bottlebrushes are a popular tree where I live, and many have been planted on the streets nearby. The parrots seem to be especially attracted to them, often leaving a carpet of flowers under the branches. In our local bush-land park, I often see Rainbow Lorikeets perched near their flowers. What a dazzling display of colours…

Enjoy!

A Magpie Takes A Walk on the Shore

Margaret's Classic Posts

It isn’t every day that I see a magpie on the shore of the local swimming baths.

These handsome birds are well known for their habit of swooping at humans during the bird’s breeding season, but I am yet to witness it. Fingers crossed that my run of luck continues!
