For my last entry to Becky’s square challenge this month (it’s 30th here), a photo of sunset and the blue afterglow at Brighton Beach on the same night.
Outside a dentistry in Warrnambool, Victoria, this picture is one of a few done by Jimmi Buscombe.
Penguins this bright want to appear on Becky’s squares.
They don’t look too bright, but they’ll do the trick for Becky’s squares.
And why are they there? From https:\\geelongaustralia.com.au
Baywalk bollard trail walk
Following the Bollard Trail, you will meet some of the unique characters who played a part in Geelong’s history, from the original Indigenous inhabitants to more contemporary characters.
- The trail continues north as far as Rippleside Park.
- 48 Sites: Estimated Walking Time: two hours one way.
- Descriptions of each bollard site.
The colourful bollards are the work of artist Jan Mitchell. Jan was commissioned by the City of Greater Geelong to transform old timbers and piles from a city pier, demolished in the 1980s, into remarkable works of art that stop young and old in their tracks.
Don’t call for these lifesavers if you’re in trouble, but they’re fine for Becky’s bright challenge.
From the Bollard walk in Geelong, Victoria.
At Geelong, in Victoria, there are a number of bollards that encourage an esplanade promenade. I’m going to share them for Becky’s square challenge, as they are certainly bright.
There is nothing like them to brighten a garden, as Autumn hits Adelaide and a last burst of warmth tricked these seeds into thinking it was Spring.
For more bright pictures, see Becky’s bright challenge.
When I collect the petals and dry them, they’ll brighten up salads.
Stretching Becky’s squares challenge, I know, but at the end of Brighton beach, South Australia, there’s a structure, created by John Dowie, that represents Tjilbruke, a Kaurna man, carrying his nephew.
The Kaurna lands are extensive and their history in this region goes back more than 2000 years. The story of Tjilbruke (and various other spellings) is about law and tradition and he appears in Kaurna Dreaming stories that are 11 000 years old.
This beautiful dragonfly caught my eye in the Northwest of Australia and I’ve included it in Becky’s squares challenge.
Although this specimen had to lose some wing and tail to fit the challenge criteria, can you decide if it is, in fact, the damselfly? – the eyes of a dragonfly are nearly joining on top of the head, but in the damselfly they are clearly separated and on either side of the head. Also, the wings of a dragonfly are not similar, with the back wings wider at the bottom, whereas damselfly wings are similar in shape.
There are other criteria, but from that, what do you think? I’m going dragonfly!
My relatives from Poland brought a selection of chocolates when they visited, the likes of which we had never seen in Australia. I can only share them with Becky’s squares’ fans as a photo, but you know I’d pass them around if I could.
Taller than me, this hydrangea had the largest flowerheads I’d ever seen. So I thought I’d share them for Becky’s squares.
