Coastal Banksia - 2


A little earlier, before they get to the "bottle brush" stage, the flowers are really quite beautiful in another way; robust and plastic like.

Coastal Banksia - 1


I think Banksias in all their forms might just be my favourite flowers.

Maybe it's their haircut that reminds me of my own.

Colour


On a bright sunny day, this building used to stand out just a bit.   I suspect that the owners will eventually realise the folly of painting a building in colours that fade, and it too will join the sea of amorphous white that adjoins it.

What's in a name?


I guess this is proof that they aren't called "plumbers" because they run things perfectly vertical every time.

Potential.


Vacant land on the beach front means only one thing: it's a SITE!

How long will it be until someone takes advantage of it?

The grumps continue.


Mount Coolum is one of the few things that qualifies as a natural landmark around these parts.

It's a pity it can't be seen all that well behind the barrier of power lines.  Perhaps they are more indicative of where we live.

Strange bedfellows


I'm not sure if I get it, nor if I like it even.   I am usually a fan of structured topiarised gardens and they look wonderful in front of seventeenth century French Chateau, but the thought of tweaking Australian native plants into these unnatural shapes somehow takes something away from it all.

I don't know why.
