I love the stateliness of these plants. This is in response to Ailsas travel theme “multiples”. Check her blog “Where’s my backpack” for lots more posts, or if you would like to join this large community of bloggers that take on Ailsas theme each week.
This also made me ponder on how important our photos are and how devastated I would be to lose them.
I searched all through my photos for this. I thought I had lost it. Then I remembered I had put it into my “Flickr” photo stream.
So I still have a copy. I have not been backing my photos to Flickr for the past year due to travel and poor internet connections so a new year’s resolution is to go through and put the most important ones into Flickr. I have them on a separate hard drive but that may not be enough.
Last night I watched the news in horror and sadness, with tears in my eyes, as the awful devastation of yet another bush fire blazed through a small town in Tasmania wiping out 60% of the towns buildings. Many of the residents running into the ocean to escape the blaze and from there watching as the fire consumed everything. They lost every thing.
wow would love a bunch of those mosquitoes kill me over here
