Spring Fling

Picture 619
Spring is finally coming about and with it so are the flowers!!! Yes, yes yes, so excited! Oh, how I have missed you, my lovelies! Any one know what flower this is that I picked because I sure don’t.
Who I do know however, is that little piggy next to him. His name is Muffin. He doesn’t photograph that well (sorry Muffin) because he’s Swarovski crystal and as such is see-through. He is one of my many, many pigs. I collect them you see. When I first started talking to Andi, neither of us believed each other when we said we collected pigs. Because you see, Andi collects pigs too. And that was when we knew it was true love. Hahaha

Anyway back to the subject! Spring, Spring, Spring! To celebrate the coming of the beautiful warmth that is Spring, I went on a little adventure through my local Nature Reserve. I’d never gone as far as I did this time so it was scary! I’m one of those people that find it hard to navigate around a 1m squared room… and the amount of crossroads I came across was a bit scary. But walking around in circles in this place would have sent me home anyway… it isn’t the biggest place.

I wonder if he has been following me… see my last Poe Crow here: A Very Poe Post tell me, do you think they look the same or is it just my imagination?

The Nature Reserve is a little habitat to protect the Eastern Barred Bandicoot who are loosing the battle on the mainland. However I say there isn’t enough room or food for them in the Reserve because I often see them wandering the streets.

These are some photos of the views from the Reserve. I thought this white sail boat looked very splendid by itself amongst all that blue. Unfortunately I didn’t catch any bandicoots this time (by catch I mean photograph).

  9. I think I'm looking forward to the end of summer just as much as you are looking forward to the end of winter. Summer (and most of spring and fall) in Las Vegas is too hot for my liking!

    Gorgeous pictures - I've always wanted to visit your end of the planet, but in the meantime I'll enjoy the pictures.

  10. Even though I *know* it's the opposite season there, I still find it fascinating that it's spring there and fall here. Enjoy the newness of spring. I love that. I'm looking forward to the cooling off here with fall. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting.
