Oeuvre 2/2

To continue with Nature’s oeuvre at this time of the year …

There is no other way to describe finding wild orchids in the bush, except pure delight.  They are delicate and grow in harsh conditions.

Australia may have the big iconic landmarks of the Great Barrier Reef, the Sydney Opera House.  I’m here to tell you there’s more to see…

If you ever visit Western Australia, be sure you come in our spring.  If you love flowers, there is no where else on earth quite like it.

I’m off now to share more of Nature’s oeuvre … I’ll be home soon.

Until next time

As always
