Sunday Selections #252

Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
 
The meme is now continued by River at Drifting through life.  The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent.  Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to River.  Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.
 
Like River I usually run with a theme.  At the moment neither my body nor my mind are behaving well.  There are many, many things I *should* be doing.  And one day this week we headed off to the Jerrabomberra Wetlands for nature induced respite instead.  The skinny one gets up at the crack of noon given his druthers so we didn't get there early, and many of the birds were absent.  It was still a treat though.  The wetlands are quite close to the centre of town, and I don't think they get the attention they deserve.  We don't visit them often enough either.

As always, rather a lot of photos follow.

The lovely Vicki tells me this is St John's Wort





Bottle-brush




I could happily spend some time on this bench.  

And another bloom which I am clueless about...


Grevillea


Scotch Thistle

  1. Such beautiful photos. You made me want to visit theJerrabomberra Wetlands. But since I live in Oregon, USA I don't suppose that will happen anytime soon.

    I think Jazz and Jewel are beautiful.

    The booklist looks so daunting but I will be checking it out. I love to read and I can see that you do too.

    Be well and take such good care of yourself.

  7. I'd be spending all my time on that bench in the shade...it's been pretty hot and humid up here over the few days. So, it's much cooler going on the stroll with you through this medium, EC! Thanks. :)

  8. It is all very green. There seems to be no shortage of pelicans in Australia. It's interesting to look at its location on a map and perhaps is only in existence and not drained and the land built on because of the railway infrastructure. Hmm, doesn't look so green in the satellite photo.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Andrew: They are starting to build on areas nearby. I don't think they ever will drain this area - because it feeds the lake. I hope not anyway. It is also surprisingly close to the airport, so any homes would be directly under the flight path.

  12. Wonderful photos EC. I love the bridges taking us across to...'wonderland?'
    the white unopened buds look like nandina, but the foliage tells me it isn't. The other flowers, the yellow and the fuzzy white also look familiar, but I can't remember what they are or where I've seen them.
    I'll sit a while on that bench with you and Lee, we'll have a picnic and a gabfest.

  14. A wonderful walk through the wetlands. Thank you, EC. I tried searching Google images for the white fluffy plant, with no luck. Google felt it was something covered in snow/ice!
    I'd love to sit on a bench and watch the pelicans...

    Hope you feel lots better this week.

    1. Alexia: There is something so soothing about water isn't there? Moving or still, salt-water or fresh, it doesn't matter. The white fluffy plant is irritating me. I will track down what it is. I hope.

  15. Awesome photos, EC. I see the new camera is working out a treat!

    I love wetlands. There's a primal peace about them.
    Creatures who dwell there are able to do so in a less manicured/artificial environment and thrive - when there is little human intervention.

    And... pelidactyls! My word - melding of one of my favourite birds, and my favourite Pterosaurs :)

    Wishing you a return to strength and better health very soon xx

    1. Vicki: Pelidactyls is a WONDERFUL word, for these amazing birds. So very descriptive. I love wetlands too. And manicured these aren't. Which is right and proper.

  16. Your pictures make me want to visit Australia even though I know it contains the most poisonous snakes and spiders in the world.
    Have you ever had any in your house? How do you keep them out?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Birdie: I am pretty certain that most houses are home to a poisonous spider or two. Red-backs here, trap-doors and funnel webs in the next state.
      In one of our homes a red-bellied black snake lived under the front steps. For about nine months of the year I only used the back door. Mostly they will do their best to get out of our way. I am scared of people and some dogs much more than I am of our bitey beasts.

  24. Sorry up hear you are not up to power at present however I am sure you felt uplifted after you visited this wonderful wetland. Did the skinny one lie in bed until noon on his holiday? Such a shame not to be at this place early in the morning. You would have seen many more birds but it was lovely yo see e Pelican. It does look beautiful and green and the Thistle colour is brilliant. Hope you feel stronger soon.

    1. Margaret Adamson: I suspect the skinny one did have a few late starts while he was away. It is what he does. He also had a number that were earlier than he is used to. We will get to the wetlands early (or late) sometime. And I am sure the bird life (and possibly kangaroos too) will be lovely.

  26. Hi EC - love that name Jerrabomberra! Gorgeous shots - and yes a nature walk in the Spring sunshine - though it looks warm. Wonderful to see some of the plants we had in SA too - Grevilia, Bottle brush etc ... while the Scottish Thistle brought me right back to the cold and snow land further north from the English Channel! Great respite area ... while the bench and cogitation sounds an ideal thought ... cheers Hilary

    1. Hilary Melton-Butcher: There are so many grevilleas - and I love them all. Ditto bottle brushes. I have a sneaking fondness for the thistle too. It transplanted with gusto from its native land.

  72. What a fabulous place to visit EC - it's making me feel homesick - (well just a teeny little bit) and yes I do seem to be smiling an awful lot over here. Still hoping for a white Christmas. It was very dry when I left north Qld but our town has just been declared drought stricken and the dam has fallen to below 30% with water restrictions upped to another level. Bushfires in the surrounding bushland and on it goes. And here I am in SW S'land with so much water. Take care of you and yours EC. x

    1. Rose ~ from Oz: We are having a difficult start to the sweaty season. Fires in most (if not all) states, and deaths in two. I hope you do get your white Christmas. Loving your smiles. Long may they continue.

  73. I think I need to move to Australia during November, December and January. I love the photo of the birds all in a row on the log in the water. It makes me grin.

    1. LL Cool Joe: We should do a swap. It is already hotter than I like it. Those birds were totally 'laxed weren't they? I smiled too.

  74. I thought St.John's Wort only came in tablets at the health store:-) I too would love to sit on that bench and just ponder the world.

    1. Grannie Annie: It is nice to see where St John's Wort begins isn't it? They obviously need more of those benches. Lots more...

    1. orvokki: It is a hidden gem isn't it? And thank you about the photos. Slowly though not always steadily I am learning the camera's ways...
