This tile features cyme x fengle, flux, 'dillo and mooka.
My second tile uses Skye as one of the axes of Squill.
A tiny 10 seconds of fame
Did you receive the latest Zentangle newsletter? If you did, did you look at the screen shot of the tangle mosaic for Ellish? One of my tiles is on there. It's the pink swirly one in the middle.
That's my 10 seconds of fame in the world of Zentangle. I was very excited to see my tile up there. I post tiles under the name of TheCreativeMissL (surprise surprise!).
Winter in Canberra = rain and truffle season
I had the very great pleasure of trying my first ever fresh truffle a couple of years ago. Since then, I indulge just a little bit in truffles during our truffle season, which goes from about June to maybe August?
I'm the only one in my family who likes them. My Saturday lunch treat (and Sunday lunch treat) was truffled eggs on spelt loaf toast, followed by mandarins that I picked from our own tree.
I bought all the ingredients at our local farmer's market. On my out of the market shed I saw this little cutie. Couldn't resist taking a photo. He's wearing a particular type of coat called a Dryzabone, which is an iconic rain coat worn by farmers in Australia. These coats often feature in the design of what our Olympic athletes wear, so you get the significance. This was the first time I'd seen one on a dog.
Canberra - the bush capital
Another iconic image of Australia is of our kangaroos. Most Australian's live in cities and don't see them often, except in zoos. However, in Canberra we get to see them often. I live near a golf course which is near farm land and native forest reserves, so I'm lucky enough to be able to see these creatures nearly every day. Even so, I never tire of seeing them.
Today I had to stop and take photos of this mob (BTW: the term 'mob' is the correct way to describe a group of kangaroos; herd of cows, murder of crows, mob of kangaroos). My photo shows only a small part of the mob who were sunning themselves on the practice fairway.
Thanks for dropping by.
