The Poison Garden looks really intriguing!



This is a close-up of the rock surface of Uluru or Ayer's Rock. If you've only seen it in photos, it looks like a smooth red rock. However, it is actually grey sandstone with a "flaky" red surface (the red being rust, or iron oxide).

When the beach is pebbly it's kind of hard to make sandcastles. Here's what my gang made instead, our very own 'Stonehenge':

The 1930s offices of Thames Water at the sewage farm in Isleworth. It's all built like this and has landscaped gardens surrounding it.

Lovely photos, everyone.
Love both the rock photos, lol @ stonehenge!
We have Sturt Peas here and they've just started to flower.

I photographed this lovely bush in the garden outside our hotel unit at Yulara (Ayer's Rock). I asked about it at the hotel reception but nobody could identify it. Can anyone tell me what it is?

MG, I think the shrub you posted is a Templetonia.



This lovely cymbidium was given to my daughter by a friend. I'm minding it until she has room in her car to take it home. I'm getting very fond of it......

I've just found some more pictures to scan in, this is a small road of modern houses round the corner to where I used to live in Stanmore about 15 years ago

Here's another plant I photographed in Alice Springs that I am trying to identify. Can anyone help? It's the last one, I promise!

P.S. Thanks Auntie!

It's Indigofera australis, I think.

Kangaroos come in two colours - red and grey. Here's one of each. These fellows reside at the Desert Park in Alice Springs.

Sunset over Keynsham (near Bristol) taken from the window of a pub.
(There was a pub quiz going on. No other reason for me to be in such a place.)
As you can see, the road outside is quite a fast one!
