Skenes Creek rock pools

Had a delightful week-end in Skenes Creek on the Great Ocean Road, and despite some not so nice weather had a lot of fun with my wonderful little Lumix and some rock pools.

February/March 2011

I did this collage at the beginning of the year as a response to the floods in Queensland- before they actually swamped Brisbane. Since then I found it awfully relevant to the horrific events in Japan and New Zealand. I intended it as a message to my loved ones and friends in Queensland- both as my hope for them, as well as a description of what they already had shown, but it goes to Japan, and New Zealand as well.
The flower is borage- a herb drunk as a tea by medieval knights before going into battle... for courage.

I'm showing off my beautiful pumpkins harvested just recently- the orangey pink one is actually an Australian variety and is huge and delicious!
Couldn't believe it when my Canadian friend told me that over there they only grow big empty pumkins for carving and nobody grows then to eat! What a waste.

Been pretty busy lately and have quite a few things to share,so watch this space and eventually I'll load it all up.

Hoping to go to this on Thursday to see more of Mel's beautiful work...


Just escaped for a couple of days to beautiful Merimbula. Neither of us had been there before and we are now officially hooked..and finally we had a bit of summer!
