The Lookout

Our local park boast a number of delightful lookouts that show the Georges River and its surroundings to best advantage. Now and then, Ron and I take Chicki to visit these beauty spots.

I’m sure that her daily visits to the park are the highlight of her life.

Enjoy!

Here’s an Australian scene.

This shot was taken in the local bushland park in suburban Sydney, and shows plenty of Flannel Flowers in bloom.

They’re still out, months after they started. Simply beautiful!

I found this photograph in my files, taken some time ago in the local bushland park. It prominently shows a beautiful Banksia in abundant flower, and in the background, a delightful Wattle also in bloom.

Australian wildflowers must surely rank high on the list of beautiful plants.

Here we have a pair of Rainbow Lorikeets surveying their handiwork: their family home.

But subsequent movements by them prove that it isn’t quite finished. 🙂
