I wandered around the old cemetery at White Cliffs yesterday. There's an incredible amount of unmarked graves there from the early days and lots of them are only child size - very sad.

It's only the Shell station on the Hook roundabout but the colours and sky made it for me

Copago - there is actually a childs cemetary at White Cliffs - apparently in a very dry time (1800's?) lots of people walked away and left their kids behind. Very sad.

Yes, that is a great photo, Dot. I somehow totally missed it.

I thought we could probably bear to see one more donkey. By the way, I've been to the sanctuary in Devon, many years ago, and it's a great place to visit.

Thank you both, here is another from the same walk. Not quite as stunning because we were on the other side of the bridge out of the sun.

Looks like a lovely walk Dot. I love your first picture, the light is spectacular in it.

We are still in the middle of autumn, and yet Covent Garden in London is already preparing for Christmas.

Sorry for my unexplained absence, I had no time for taking photos unfortunately. frown But some fantastic photos from everyone while I was away!

My favourite flower is the kangaroo paw. They're native to WA and can come in some really amazing colours. Here's one with an orange/red colouration. Any guesses why it is called the "kangaroo paw"? wink

Would you believe that this is the inside of a shopping centre (in the Venetian Hotel in Macau)? That blue sky is the ceiling. It really feels like you are outdoors!

Amazing, Carole!
Dan we call that Firecracker vine here and it comes out at CNY. I have some all over my wall outside and it is very showy.
This year CNY

OK, I'm cross now. I love that firecracker vine, but checking it seems as though it doesn't grow well here - needs a hot climate and it completely frost intolerant. Ah well, never mind.

Dot, your orchid looks great. I have a white one which is just coming out of the rest period and putting up a new flower spike. Do you feed your at all?

Our orchids are in the garden and we never touch them, when they finish flowering I just ignore them, no water (well some when I remember) They thrive on lack of attention I think.

Ren, Daniel's plant is a kangaroo paw and yours is a firecracker vine and although they look the same in these two photos, they are actually totally different in real life. The kangaroo paw is "fuzzy" and grows in the ground in clumps - it is not a vine.

Here is a picture of the red-and-green kangaroo paw that I took years ago. It's not a good photo and ordinarily I would not post it - however, it does show the overall plant and illustrates how it differs from a vine.

The red-and-green kangaroo paw is our state's floral emblem but the kangaroo paw comes in other colours too, as you can see from Daniel's photo.

Copago - not wishing to sound morbid but cemeteries are such interesting places, from a historical point of view. There is a cemetery not far from us where there are a bunch of children's graves from one family and you can guess from the dates that they must have all died from an epidemic of some kind. So sad to think that the parents probably lost their entire family within such a short space of time.

Low tide at Caroline Bay on a calm day, not too easy for surfing. Unfortunately the sand continues to build up and is quite problematic.
