It was the beginning of a hot day when we went to the Lismore Botanical Garden. We have been meaning to go every time we go to the Recycling Centre or as it is commonly know, the Tip Shop. Yes great bargains are to be had from the things that people throw away. But I digress. The morning was starting to heat up but it was cool walking among the trees. There has been very low rainfall so the plants were not at the best. We will go back when the rains come and I’ll show you some of the fabulous flowers, seeds, plants and hopefully there will be lots more birds.
The Gardens are a community project and the volunteers do a fabulous job. Over four hectares have been planted with dry, subtropical and riverine rainforest species. Here is their website
Enjoy walking the paths of the Lismore Rainforest Botanical Gardens

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Blue and Yellow
The cute little flight simulator at a recent airshow. No I wasn’t allowed to get in.
I thought I had more blue and yellow flowers. At least I found one of a Wandering Jew plant
The Ponytail trees have an abundance of yellow flowers and lots of bees
Franks, at Dutch goes the Photo, word prompt: Breeze
Today, I had a major embarrassment. My guests arrived and parked their car in the driveway in front of the house. We went inside and had a lovely morning tea and conversation.
After a while I went outside to make sure my garden wasn’t suffering in the heat of the day. Whilst outside I noticed some unusual activity. I snuck inside and grabbed my camera just to make sure what I saw was actually happening right there, in front of my eyes.
How do you tell your guests that there is someone having sex on their car, right in the driveway right in front of my house?
The Weekly Prompt from Sue for the photo challenge: Walking
Yes walking. There is always someone walking about isn’t there?
A White-faced Heron takes a walk among the Mangroves
A Black-necked Stork walks in the wetland looking for a snack
Having a stroll along the beach, an Osprey without a care in the world
The word prompt from Sheryl: Frustration
What is frustration?
Trying to have your lunch when friends drop over
Trying to have a drink when someone comes along who is argumentative
Trying to have a bath when someone drops in
Your Mum washing your face in public
Getting that fabulous photo of a bird and all you end up with is a branch

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pairs
There used to live in my street a number of people, who have since moved on, who used to put out bird seed mainly for the parrots. Since then I have a pair of King Parrots who come to the trees around the house and whistle. I don’t like to feed the birds but I have a bowl of seed I put out every now and then for this pair of King Parrots.
They are a couple and it is thought that they mate for life, that is why there is nearly always a pair of King Parrots in my garden.
He always lets her eat first when they arrive on the verandah together. Keeping a wary eye on me.
Then they swap around and she keeps her eye on me while he eats.
The word prompt from Sue is Green
A bit of green from my part of the world
Sometimes everything is so green
A patch of green among a circle of red
Here’s that blasted grasshopper again
I love the green among the other colours in the King Parrots feathers
The Green Tree Snake looking for something to eat
Emerald Doves certainly make the place look bright
Green just shoots out from the pine tree
Praying Mantis are always on the look out for anything that may be delicious
I miss the Green Catbirds that live at my besties old place
