Still in The Grampians, at Sundial Turntable.
You can see the scars of the severe wildfires of 2006, and the degree of regeneration.
Much of Australia's flora is dependent on fire, smoke and ash for seeds to germinate.

Very wet and windy this morning but some late afternoon sunshine let me get a photo of the river Wey near Godalming.

The streets in the medina at Fez are so narrow that donkeys are loaded down to make deliveries.

This one is blindfolded so as not to notice all the activity going on around him.

It's raining here too!
There's a drop of green colouring in my rain gauge so I can glimpse the level from inside the house. I'm afraid I'm becoming a female version of Eric Olthwaite......

This could actually pass off for Horniman Circle or Churchgate in South Bombay back when second hand book sellers were allowed to set up shop there.

A view across Bristol from Cabot Tower. The tower was built in memory of John
Cabot who sailed from Bristol in the 1400s in the Matthew and 'discovered' Canada.
The tower is currently closed for renovation. I took this (& a few others) some
time ago. I've only recently found the photos & scanned them. Came out quite well.

We have a niger seed feeder just outside our kitchen window. We have counted up to 18 on it at the same time. I must remember to keep my camera handy the next time that happens.
These two looked a bit bedraggled as it had been raining.

Nice ducks Pete. I notice your comment "Tomorrow will be my Lucky Duck day!" on your FT profile so here is an Indian Runner Duck we saw in Dorking during an enjoyable Murder Weekend.

The Telopea (Waratah) is the floral emblem of New South Wales. They are now grown commercially for the cut flower trade.

Thanks for the duck photo SOTHC, I'm not sure if posting duck pictures helps with the Lucky Duck badge but it doesn't hurt to try :-)
We went to a Murder Evening in Haslemere last year and had a great time, never tried a Weekend one but have heard they are run every well, something to put on the list for next year.

Beautiful flowers Auntie :-)



I haven't posted a Heron photo for a while, this was taken about a week ago just before the rainy days started.

The rain finally stopped- it kept me indoors all week so nothing new till the sun came out today. This is the centre of Hersham village.

I agree with Satguru it was good to see the sun again today, but that wintery coldness is starting to be felt in the air.



With the temperature dropping, sitting on the bench for too long isn't much fun, so might as well take a photo of it instead.

This was a wildflower I had never seen before (and I've seen a few in my time).
My daughter recognised it as Glischrocaryon behrii (Golden Pennants) but was surprised to find it in The Grampians. It seemed to be confined to one small area.

I spent a little too long this evening trying to photograph the heron and nearly got caught out by the light. Not so happy with the heron picture I eventually managed, still trying to work out how to take photos in low light, so will post this shot taken while I was waiting for the heron to appear.

The woody stem of my 6 foot tall Monstous variety of giant cutleaf Philodendron. The eyeball image of the leaf scars mesmerizes me, but then so does any moving shadow. You can see a few of the aerial roots growing from the left (shaded) side.
