What are some simple things we like about Australia? There are blooms of every variety here. Many of them are on bushes and trees and so are perrenials.
I think this bush on the left is a gardenia. My memory tells me Mom really liked these in corsages because of their sweet smell. This is planted in the garden in front of the 5 villas where we live. The tree on the right is a Jacaranda. They can be very large and carpet the ground with purple blossoms.
These pictures I took when walking to Mortdale to get the mail.
One of our pleasures is going to Cronulla beach on Saturday. Elder Kinghorn wanted a good swim in the ocean before Autumn. The weather has been hot enough for us to go again. On the left are the beach patrol packing up for the day. They place flags on the beach and have a power boat ready and serve as life guards for a set time.What can you find hidden in the middle picture?
The tide was out, so we found these beautiful small shells when we took a long walk down the beach. There are cute tiny lizards that we see on the sidewalks as they scamper into the bushes. I included my toes so you can see how little they are. This one was in our bedroom. He was tired enough I got a quick picture of him. You won’t see a picture of this carpet any more. New carpet was laid today.
Our Valentines day was very simple. Sweet Sister Nelson remembered and gave each of us in the office a lollipop from See’s. Right, there is a nice restaurant in nearby Oatley that serves Chicken Schnitzel, chips and a salad for a very low price weeknights. I ate all the salad and gave most the chicken and chips to Elder Kinghorn!
