While taking our dog Lady for a walk I noticed several bushes with these small attractive flowers. I have no idea what they are but they brighten things up

Love the geckos! Bailey is gorgeous and so are all the Spring flowers smile

Here, Precious greets her friend Buddy, who wants to play. Moments later their leads were all tangled and Precious said something that sounded like "Sccccchhhcchhhhsssss". Buddy still wanted to play...

My friend and his dog in what was once my local park. I think the rules allow the back of people.

The deer looks kind of sad!
Bailey is gorgeous!
Great pics everyone laugh

only took this with my ipod today as we were mustering sheep with shearing starting on Monday (expect to see lots more sheep lol). They're about the same colour as the grass at the moment which makes finding them a little tricky.

Took me a while to spot them, Copago. Nice shot.

Pretty flowers, Gees.

I've had problems downloading from camera to computer, so haven't posted for a while. frown
But I've enjoyed all your interesting contributions!



Donning my "Gran" hat, I volunteered to check and refurbish all my grandson's outgrown knitwear. A couple of seams needing extra stitches, tighten some buttons, handwash, etc.
I highly recommend the battery-operated fuzz remover!
So here's the first batch of hand-me-downs for next grandchild, due in July.

My new toy! It's called a Thermomix. I believe these are not available in America although they are popular in Europe and recently introduced to Australia. For those of you unfamiliar with it, it does the following:


(this is cut and pasted from the Thermomix UK website):

Thermomix is a super fast food blender and processor that also weighs, cooks, simmers and steams!

One Thermomix with One Bowl and One Blade can do all this:

Thermomix weighs - with built-in electronic scales
Thermomix grates - nuts, cheese, chocolate, parmesan
Thermomix mills - rice, grains and pulses to flour
Thermomix purées - vegetables, fruits, baby food
Thermomix grinds - coffee beans, sugar to icing sugar, wet or dry spices
Thermomix blends - soups, smoothies, milkshakes and sauces
Thermomix cooks, boils & simmers - soups, sauces, preserves, pulses, complete meals
Thermomix steams - vegetables, meat, fish, fruits, rice, pasta
Thermomix crushes - ice, cocktails, ice creams, sorbet
Thermomix whisks - egg whites, cappuccino-style foam on soups and milk, zabaglione
Thermomix emulsifies - salad dressings, mayonnaise, batters, cream
Thermomix kneads - bread dough, pizza dough, pasta dough, pastry, scones
Thermomix chops & minces - nuts, herbs, vegetables, salads, meats
Thermomix heats baby food to 37oC
Thermomix holds chocolate at 37oC

......and after all this add some water and washing up liquid and Thermomix cleans itself!

PS- Can it make toast?

Forgive us MG, if a couple of Aussies can't take the mickey, who can?

Seriously though, I could not attack some of my kitchen hobbies without the aid of a food processor and the Kenwood Chef with various attachments. The spirit is willing, but the wrists are weak!

Your new appliance looks great. Hope it gives you many years of satisfaction.

Mothergoose - I am glad you posted that picture I have never seen one before, although we have regular calls from sellers to come and give me a free demonstration, I have always declined, enjoy your new toy!

Shannon I LOVE the cat picture, they are so cute together.

This picture is taken at an Andalucian Horse show.



This is a Pure Spanish Horse, more commonly known as an Andalucian Horse.

szabs, I only have one question, well, maybe 3 questions: Did you do the braiding of the mane? How long did it take? Did the horse stand still for it? It is very beautiful and I'm truly impressed knowing how hard it can be to braid a horses mane.

Golfmom - The horse named Bianca belongs to a friend of mine, his daughter is the one who braided her, I know the horse very well and she is as good as gold, but when she is being groomed they bribe her constantly with apples and what nots hence she stays quite still. The braiding is normally done the night before and it takes her about an hour. They prefer doing this diamond/latice braid mainly because it allows the horse to move its neck more freely.

Please take the mickey all you want. In the short time it took you to type your post, I made a lemon sorbet! smilee

P.S. Love all the animal pictures, particularly Mother cat and kitten.

This is the traffic roundabout near our local shops.
At this time of year the flowering eucalypts are alive with noisy
Rainbow Lorikeets feeding on the nectar.

Szabs' photo of the gecko reminded me of this one I recently took at my mother's house. I went to use the smallest room of the house and found I was not alone! This little fellow was sheltering behind the toilet roll.
