Showing my anorak side, you'd be surprised how many of these turn up on flickr, and there is a group of nothing but street names. They do remind you of home, and I take them with enough surroundings so you can see the roads themselves, and stick to my favourite places. A decent example like the one in my room here would fetch about £150, and there's a shop in Kings Road Chelsea selling loads of them. This one's right in the middle of Golders Green.

This is the first bloom I have in my garden this year, other than a few small blue flowers that I'm not sure aren't weeds... I'm not much of a gardener, so if anyone can tell me what this is, I'd be grateful
Yes, Liz that is a hyacinth in need of a little TLC, I think. Here is the original Kookaburra, sitting in an old gumtree, which I saw in the Koala sanctuary near Melbourne. I will post the Koala pics later.

This is a partial view of the man-made lake next to our apartment complex (it's to the right behind the trees). I got lots of nice pics today, lots of geese and duck and the first batch of ducklings I've seen this year--perhaps I'll post that tomorrow.

Today I went to the shop to buy a pack of peel-off strips (about 50p per packet) and some black paper. Each time I go to that shop I look at the computer chairs with longing as mine was an office throw-out about twenty years ago. Today I gave into temptation. I had to unpack it outside and carry each piece into the house separately. My photo tomorrow will show whether all the bits were in the box and whether I managed to put it together!
