QB - so sorry about your camera. I hope you have enough of your beautiful shots on file until you get a new one.
mehaul - gorgeous bougainvillea. Imlazyitis is a contagious condition. I suffer recurrent bouts!
Jakeroo - your snowy house is so picturesque, but I wouldn't want to live there (no offence).
Sharon - those bananas are so tempting. They are in short supply here since Cyclone Yasi and floods hit Queensland.:-(
I'm not sure what the insect is, but it's quite tiny since the miniature rose is only about 1.5 inches.
