That's definitely a coot. I love them - they're such feisty little birds.

Thank you. It's such a gorgeous place it's almost impossible to take a bad photo of it.

Another over-sized cuddly toy I saw in New York, presumably a wabbit?
I have no idea what it was there for. Being NY, I guess the answer is 'because'. smile

It is very sad news. The pilot didn't survive the crash. Nobody else was hurt though which is some comfort I suppose. frown

"A-tisket a-tasket
My little wicker basket",
loaded up for my first-ever visit to a local vegie swap. I took jams, herbs and half-a-dozen fresh eggs - being winter, I had no vegies as such.
I came home with a cardamom plant, several clean jam jars, a handful of salad greens, some seed potatoes, and having enjoyed a cupcake, still warm. Not to forget the bag of dog fur clippings, a great addition to the compost bin!
This is a monthly event, and I'm going to enjoy it, I think.

I spent the weekend in Hyderabad, so here's a pic of the Char Minar (Four Minarets), a famous monument that was once located in the centre of the city.

Nothing announces the impending arrival of Spring like the
intense fragrance of brown boronia. It's native to MotherGoose's area of Western Australia, but some of us on the east coast persist in trying to grow it just for that magic perfume.
