Second blog today - I am trying to catch up with the news.
If you read the Canada Trip blog 2 years ago you may remember my search for bear’s claws ( wooden not real) - well this time its Kangaroos Paws - and no I haven’t bought a gun …this is the name of some beautiful wildflowers. Highlight of the day yesterday was a trip to Kings Park in Perth ( and it’s the wildflower season here). Luckily I was shown round by a local as I met up with my friend Jill’s distant cousin Miriel and she knew quite a lot about the Aussi flora ( flowers not margarine).So thanks Jill for introducing me to Mireil. We wandered the park and even a little off the path adventure into the bush( not far from the car at all - and yes Terry I had the mobile with me!!!) and so I found many beautiful wildflowers and the kangaroos paws to photograoh. An invite for a meal to Miriels home was most welcome and a look at all her beautiful quilts which she has made was quite inspiring …might I start a quilt???
To make up for buying a jumper
I have now got another pair of shorts so I am really getting into the swing of things…
Saw my first pelicans as I drove over river into Mandurah…this is the start of my drive around the SW coast. It's looking good with a great welcome for my new hosts Julie and Gary.
Bye for now all you lovely people - keep those messages coming to me. xxxx
Photos now up to date.... I can hear my kids say - ohno not more flowers!!!!!! xxxx
