February 10, 2014


Last night was pretty spectacular. Fireworks on this scale are guaranteed to make me feel like an excited child (the way not many others things do). Opening night of the Perth International Arts Festival went off with a bang (someone had to say it..) and once again my trusty Samsung phone came to the rescue. I […]

Extreme close-up

July 5, 2013


Selfies I can’t get excited about, but check out this fellow. Have you ever seen anything as amazing? He is super small, with a 2cm wingspan. I have no idea what species he is but he was waiting on my wall at the foot of my stairs the other morning and patiently endured this photo […]

Hidden lady

November 16, 2012


Can you see her? Wonder what she’s doing there and where she came from? I spent some time as a ‘tourist’ showing one of my dearest friends around a few months ago and took the opportunity to re-look at what was around. Sounds cliched but always more to discover…

May 30, 2012


…Autumn is a magical time… wanted to share these with you before the season officially changes. Where I am we are having the most divine sunny days. These leaves are from my garden, the colour and tonal variation seem almost too good to be true. (This post is for my lovely neighbour Gill with whom I share a tree.) Listen […]

Taking stock

April 15, 2012


Famous for its sweetly scented flowers, this genus of 55 species of annuals, perennials, and subshrubs is a member of the cabbage (Brassicaceae) family. The species are native to Europe, central and southwestern Asia, and North Africa. Also known as stock or gillyflower, these plants are traditional favorites that are popular for cut flowers and […]
