From our trip a while ago to tropical Queensland,
just remembering the warmth and the sunshine on
this cold, wet, blustery winter's day.
The lilacy pink of a profusion of waterlilies
and a patient juvenile Heron for contrast, fishing in just a
trickle of the river after a severe flood when it ran 20'deep.
All photos enlarge but the last one really needs it to see the clarity
of the running rater.

Hello Sweetest Arija,ReplyDelete
To read about cold wet blustery day after a 2mile walk in 87 degree temperature is very hard for me to fathom. Daisy is panting, I am perspiring but what a cool visual relief your lily pond gives me. Thank you! TSUP!

I am feeling the same as you. This should be a good time to visit Queensland. I went before, and it was so good. The trouble is we don't have holidays now.ReplyDelete
Pacific blue has pulled out of New Zealand, so it will cost a lot more to fly to Oz.
