Wordless Wednesday – the lizard

November 7, 2012 Life and Living

Little girl was very excited to find a lizard and gently patted it with one finger. It was obviously not a well lizard, which added to the mice and chickens in our ongoing lesson about death being a part of life and where food comes from. But while it lived it was fascinating to get so [...]

Apparently humans don’t play well with others, especially large predators that might eat our farm animals. One way to protect them is to give them a value to their local community, and one of the best ways of doing that is through tourism.

Wordless Wednesday – Oasis

There, amongst the sere brown grasses, a patch of green. Big girl spotted this strange phenomenon. I suspect those ferns under the large and luxurious bushes hold the answer, and diagnose a broken pipe.

I got a rare chance to play with my girls at the museum. Big girl’s explanation is that they must weigh different amounts, so she was testing it. She did explain why they went up to different heights. And I heroically did not tell her the answer, she can play with it another day.

Wordless Wednesday – Sun Dial

September 12, 2012 Earth and Beyond

I adore it when things are as beautiful as they are functional. I took this picture with the iPhone that has also replaced my watch. But no matter what cover I put on it, it will never be as beautiful as this sun dial. And no matter how good my phone plan, it will never [...]

Wordless Wednesday – Parasitic tree

September 5, 2012 Life and Living

We get lots of mistletoe parasites up here, but I had to look twice at this one. It probably isn’t a true parasite anymore because those root/trunks reach the ground, but it probably started as one when a seed lodged in the fork of the gum tree. There’s now a whole tree (some type of [...]

I don’t think the attraction ever fades. Playing in dirt – the original open-ended multi-age game.

The finalists for this year’s Eureka prizes have been announced, and as usual there are amazing photos to drool over. (Above is a Mantis Shrimp by Gary Cranitch) I have no idea of the legalities here, but I think that seeing I’m using the photos for comment, I’m non-commercial and I am attributing the photos and [...]

Look who popped in to visit one day. Sorry for the photo quality, I was taking them through a window before she disappeared. I think it’s a female because of the fairly dull colours, and she seems to be a sacred kingfisher. I like being able to identify some of the things we see!

Wordless Wednesday – More Weird Bathroom Light

August 8, 2012 Energy and Change

Obviously this is reflecting off something round, but we can’t work out what. I thought it was the metal corner strip, but we tried covering it up and the pattern was still there. In fact we seem to have tried covering pretty much everything reflective in the bathroom and we still get these starbursts all [...]
